In Bayda, around 200 km east of Benghazi, the city’s media center said Brig. Abdullah Masoud and Colonel Al-Lafi Obiedi were abducted from Barqa Hotel.
The center reported that a militiaman loyal to Dignity Operation called Ahmed Garoor stormed the hotel with force and took the two military officers to an unknown place.

Meanwhile, Qatarnah tribe in Abyar town, 45 km to the east of Benghazi, has refused the treason charges directed at Brig Ahmed Qatarni, a member of the tribe.
While Qatarni remains under tribal protection, it demanded in a statement an investigation into the alleged treason charges, regarding them as an attempt to slander the tribesman.
