The Defense Ministry in the Salvation Government condemned in a statement Wednesday the atrocious attacks on Benghazi and Ajdabia by the oppressors under the command of the war captive, Khalifa Haftar, as the statement described.

The statement also denounced the assults carried out Tuesday on civilians in Sabratha city by the IS militants, who try to destabilize the city by wreaking havoc and terrorizing the civilians.

“Haftar and IS are both trying to eradicate February revolution, so to all appearances, they are two sides of the same coin.” The statement indicated.

The Defense Ministry also hailed the valor the revolutionaries showed against those militants who have many ex-regime followers among them, pointing out that some of them were videotaped chanting ex-regime slogans.

It also called upon the international community to assume responsibility by protecting the civilians and their properties from the criminal acts of those militias and by opening safe routes for humanitarian aids to arrive in the destructed areas.
