Protests Against GNA In Libya, As Egypt And LNA Reject Demilitarized Sirte And Al-Jufra

On August 20th, protests took place in al-Zawiyah, west of Tripoli, by citizens unhappy with the Government of National Accord’s (GNA) leadership.

To quench the protests, an unknown group shot live rounds in their direction. There’s a video of the incident.

This is not surprising, since the GNA, being incapable of enforcing its own authority, employs all sorts of militants to “assist” it, so it is no surprise if terrorists shoot at protesters to “restore calm.”

In Sirte, supporters of Saif al-Islam Gaddafi were demonstrating on the street, and nobody shot at them in the city under Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s forces control.

There is still no fighting for Sirte, all anywhere around Libya currently. Libyan National Army (LNA) spokesperson Brigadier General Ahmed al-Mesmari said that Qatar and Turkey were hard at work recruiting extremists to be deployed and fight in Libya.

He warned that if actions weren’t taken, the Libyan conflict could be a regional war.

Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar recently met with the Egyptian head of Military intelligence Brigadier General Khalid Mogawer.

It is unclear what the discussion was, but LNA spokesperson al-Mesmari said that the Haftar’s forces would not accept to turn Sirte and al-Jufra into a demilitarized zone.

Egypt reportedly also told Haftar that it is against any separation of Libya and turning any areas into demilitarized zones to separate West from East, and that sovereignty and integrity must be kept.
