Al-Mesmari said, in a press conference, that “Al-Sarraj’s initiative was written in another capital,” pointing out that the initiative signed by Al-Sarraj is “for media marketing,” according to Libyan media outlets.
Al-Mesmari explained that “during the past three days, suspicious movements of militias and mercenaries of Turkey were monitored, and Turkish ships and frigates were spotted advancing towards Sirte in an offensive status,” according to what was reported by German News Agency.
He stressed that “the Libyan National Army is fully prepared to confront any attack,” adding, “We are in a combat position and are ready to defend Sirte and Al-Jafra,” noting that terrorism is expanding in Libya under international auspices.
The Government of National Accord, based in Tripoli, announced (Friday) a ceasefire in all Libyan lands, and called for Sirte and Jufrah to be demilitarized zones, and for parliamentary and presidential elections to be held next March.
For his part, Counselor Aguila Saleh, Speaker of the Libyan Parliament, based in Benghazi, asked all parties to the conflict in the country for an immediate ceasefire and all combat operations throughout Libya.
