A video posted on social media on Friday showed Dignity Operation militants abusing a captive and forcing him to praise wannabe ruler of Libya Khalifa Haftar.

The video depicted a captive from Magharba tribe surrounded by more than four militants coercing him into saying “Haftar is my lord” while repeatedly striking him on the back of the head.

“Who is Haftar?” the militants asked the helpless man more than 10 times, while he was forced to repeatedly reply “he is my lord.”

The tyrannical act is similar to that of Syrian president Bashar Asad’s forces and former Libyan dictator Gaddafi’s brigades, observers say.

Dignity Operation launched a crackdown on opponents and conducted large-scale arrests in Brega and Ajdabiya following the march of Benghazi Defense Brigades eastward.
