The annual US intelligence report, known as the “annual threat assessment,” revealed that the situation in Libya may flare up at any moment in the current year, despite limited political, economic and security progress.
The report said – according to what Alhurra published – Tuesday, that the crises facing the interim government are the same that prevented previous governments from advancing towards reconciliation. This time, the file of the presence of foreign mercenaries on Libyan soil added to it.
The “Annual Threat Assessment” report issued by the US Senate Intelligence Committee added that instability in Libya will continue and persist, and according to the data, the military conflict may erupt at any moment as the situation may get out of control and extend to a wider conflict.
The report indicated that the Libyan factions are struggling to resolve their differences, but foreign powers still continue to exercise their influence at home, pointing out that it is likely that foreign powers will continue their financial and military support to their agents.
It is worth noting that the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, “Laura Cooper” confirmed last week that the United States of America is ready to continue to put pressure in the event that the withdrawal of all foreign forces and mercenaries from Libya is not achieved.
