[Libya Observer] Tripoli|
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
Protection Force (TPF) called on the Presidential Council to look for the greater good of the country and people and do away with the narrow interests of certain parties and factions who wish to repeat the past by focusing on seizing power only.
TPF said in a statement on Tuesday that it is following the latest developments and calls for a political solution in Libya along with the meetings of Presidential Council's Head Fayez al-Sarraj to find a national project to end the conflict.
TPF reiterated rejection to military rule and its firm resistance and fighting against the remaining forces of Khalifa Haftar
...Self-proclaimed Field Marshal, served in the Libyan army under Muammar Qadaffy, and took part in the coup that brought Qadaffy to power in 1969. He became a prisoner of war in Chad in 1987. While held prisoner, he and his fellow officers formed a group hoping to overthrow Qadaffy, so it's kind of hard to describe him as a Qadaffy holdover. He was released around 1990 in a deal with the United States government and spent nearly two decades in the United States, gaining US citizenship. In 1993, while living in the United States, he was convicted in absentia of crimes against the Jamahiriya and sentenced to death. Haftar held a senior position in the anti-Qadaffy forces in the 2011 Libyan Civil War. In 2014 he was commander of the Libyan Army when the General National Congress (GNC) refused to give up power in accordance with its term of office. Haftar launched a campaign against the GNC and its Islamic fundamentalist allies. His campaign allowed elections to take place to replace the GNC, but then developed into a civil war. Guess you can't win them all...

"We are against terrorism and extremism and against using them by Haftar's forces as a pretext to undermine their opponents to please their supporters." It said, adding that the state authorities must start looking into corruption and avoid being selective in exacting laws.
"The Presidential Council should take measures against the counties that backed up war on Tripoli in order to hold them accountable for targeting airports and vital institutions in the country." It added.
TPF indicated that it had joined the forces under the command of Central and Western Military Zones to end the conflict and reach a comprehensive settlement in Libya.
