Haftar still refuses to submit to state institutions and work under its leadership. After militants affiliated with him prevented the prime minister from visiting Benghazi last Monday, his spokesman, Ahmed Al-Mismari, issued a statement shortly before, requesting Dbaiba not to be accompanied by any security or army personnel for his meeting to take place in Benghazi, denying any ties with the government, whether official or service, so will the government accept Haftar’s conditions?
Al-Mismari said in a statement that they do not object to the Dbaiba government holding any meeting in any area under their control, especially in Benghazi, on the condition that Dbaiba does not bring any security personnel with him, describing them as militias
Al-Mismari added that they do not have any link with the government, whether sovereign, service, or even communication.
Canceling the visit
The national unity government headed by Dbaiba was planning to hold a meeting in the city of Benghazi last Monday after the Benina airport was surrounded by a militia affiliated with Haftar and the delegation was prevented from visiting
The official spokesman for the Prime Minister, Mohamed Hammouda, announced the cancellation of the visit without mentioning the reasons, instead Dbaiba had a meeting with his ministers in Tripoli.
Diplomatic sources told Arraed that the Egyptian Foreign Ministry entered as a mediator to secure the entry of Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbaiba next week
Haftar’s supporters are threatening
And social media reported a number of videos showing supporters of Haftar promising firy reception for Dbaiba and threatening him if he landed in Benghazi. One of them described him as a “Zionist” and confirmed their readiness to confront him with weapons in the event he landed in Benghazi, while another said that Benghazi is forbidden for Dbaiba as Mecca forbidden for Jews.
Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbaiba stated on the first days of his approval as head of government that he would not choose anyone in his government who could not work in all Libyan cities .. Can Dbaiba be able to work from the east of the country after Haftar’s recent pressures ?!
