Saleh excludes Haftar
Head of the Tobruk Parliament in eastern Libya, Aqila Saleh, met on Wednesday evening with leaders of Haftar’s forces, in a meeting that was remarkable for the latter’s absence.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Tobruk’s House of Representatives said that Saleh met with the city of the dome Abdul-Razek Al-Nadhuri, Saqr Al-Jaroushi, Muhammad Al-Senussi and Khairi Al-Tamimi.
The aforementioned are leaders of the Haftar Forces, which the Libyan government, which is internationally recognized, is fighting legitimacy and authority.
The council added that the aforementioned people congratulated Saleh on the occasion of Eid Al-Fitr, and briefed him on the developments in the field situation and the latest military developments throughout the country.
Haftar’s absence from this meeting comes in light of an ongoing dispute with Saleh, since the Tobruk House of Representatives announced on May 25, his refusal to announce Haftar to install himself as governor of Libya, and to drop the 2015 political agreement.
There are reports that Saleh, as what he calls himself the supreme commander of the armed forces, in reference to eastern Libya’s forces, is planning to appoint Nadori Khalifa Haftar as the commander of those forces.
In December 2015, the Libyan parties signed a political agreement that resulted in the formation of a presidential council that would lead the Al-Wefaq government, and the creation of a higher state council, but Haftar sought for years to block it and topple it.
With the support of Arab and European countries, Haftar forces have launched, since April 4, 2019, a faltering attack to control the capital, Tripoli (west), the seat of the government, killing and injuring civilians, along with extensive material damage.
