After nearly eight months of aggression on Tripoli, Hifter’s spokesman admits that the death toll in their ranks has exceeded 7,000.
Al-Mesmari previously denied in more than one press interview that there are any prisoners or missing from their forces despite all the evidence presented by the GNA army forces to the contrary since the beginning of the aggression, despite all these casualties, Al-Masmari continued on the satellite channel run by the former Libyan ambassador to the UAE Arif Anayed stressing that they will not cease fire, rejecting the statements of UN envoy Ghassan Salama about the purpose of the Berlin conference.
This huge loss of life made Hiftir use mercenaries from different countries. Despite the Russian denial on the official level, the presence of Russian mercenaries, especially from the Vagner Group, is a tangible reality.
Al-Mesmari, in his meeting with Anayed TV channel, admitted the presence of Russian soldiers working to maintain their heavy weapons.
to compensate for his losses Hiftir not only used Russians ,leaks from the UN experts’ report on Libya revealed that the deputy chairman of Sudan’s military council, Mohamed Hamdan Doklo ” Hamedati “, had sent 1,000 Sudanese rapid support troops to Hiftir to help him in his aggression against Tripoli.
In a statement, the Ministry of Interior of the GNA confirmed that Hifter and his accomplices handed over military air bases to foreigners. The UAE was given Al-Jufra airbase and the Vagner mercenaries were given the air the base of Al-Wettiya to carry out acts that threaten the lives of civilians.
The Interior Ministry’s statement came in response to Al-Mesmari’s statements, which threatened to impose an air embargo on the capital, threatening Haftir and his accomplices with full punishment for their crimes in the near future.
With so much loss of life and equipment in Hifter’s forces – he has not been able to move forward in recent months, but has caused the displacement of more than 128,000 people from their homes and killed more than 200 civilians.
