The Grand Mufti of Libya Sheikh Al-Sadiq Al-Gharyani has issued a fatwa prohibiting purchasing goods from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Jordan, and Egypt, considering that every dollar paid to these countries "is a bullet in the chest of our sons".

The fatwa published on the Libyan Fatwa House’s official Facebook page stated "It is not permissible to buy goods from the UAE, Jordan, Egypt or any other country that is hostile to us," explaining that trading with these countries will make them even stronger while the money they earn will be used against the Libyan people.

Instead, the Grand Mufti urged the Ministry of Economy and traders to import all goods from Turkey for standing with the Libyan people in its crisis.

Earlier, he called the government to cut ties with the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and France for backing warlord Haftar’s war on Tripoli.
