Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous: Haftar's Tripoli offensive is no less dangerous than ISIS
[Libya Observer] The anti-ISIS
...embracing their inner Islamic Brute...
al-Bunyan al-Marsous has welcomed the US announcement of the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, reminding the world that it lost 788 fighters, while 3500 were maimed in the war on ISIS in Sirte.

The operation said in a statement on Sunday that 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 offensive on 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...
is hindering efforts to terminate the presence of murderous Moslems in Libya, pointing out that some of its fighters are defending Tripoli against Haftar's forces and the rest are searching for the remnants of ISIS murderous Moslems in the desert.

The statement added that drone-backed attacks by Haftar's forces on civilians and civilian infrastructure such as airports pave the way for terrorism to resurface.

"This dirty war of Haftar's forces on Tripoli is a terrorist act against people who want democracy and peace." The statement reads.
