Grand Mufti: Libya has the right to launch tit-for-tat attacks on the UAE
[Libya Observer] Grand Mufti Sheikh al-Sadiq al-Ghariani
...Libyan Moslem Brüderhood Grand Mufti since 2012. Issued a fatwa forbidding Libyan women from marrying foreign men. Issued a fatwa against a UN Commission on the Status of Women's report because it urged governments to protect women and girls against violence. Aligned with the GNC govt...
said Libyans have the right to defend themselves from the UAE’s brutal air raids on civilians and infrastructure in Libya, urging the Libyan government to look for anti-UAE allies to curb its evil.

Reacting to 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...
’s Furnaj massacre by warlord 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...
’s UAE-backed air force, the influential Mufti asked the Libyan authorities "Why don’t we forge an alliance with a country that is hostile to the UAE to bomb its airports as it does in Libya?"

Speaking on his weekly Fatwa program on Tanasuh TV on Wednesday, the Mufti said complaining to the United Nations
...an organization originally established to war on dictatorships which was promptly infiltrated by dictatorships and is now held in thrall to dictatorships...
Security Council about the UAE attacks on Libya won’t be useful because La Belle France, a permanent member in the UNSC, is also attacking Libya by providing weapons and logistic support for warlord Khalifa Haftar in his war on Tripoli.

The UAE is taking warlord Khalifa Haftar’s side in the Libyan conflict, sending him money, weapons and mercenaries to kill his opponents on the pretext of fighting terrorism.

The latest victims of their air raids in Tripoli were three maiden of tender yearss from one family. Their mother and fourth sister were flown to Italia for treatment suffering from critical injuries.

#2 Muslims have the right and the duty to attack anyone at any time for any reason. It says so in the Koran.
