Libya's Grand Mufti, Sheikh Al-Sadiq Al-Gharyani has considered the ceasefire in Tripoli "an illusion", saying it was just created to impose reality on the ground.

In his weekly program on Tanasuh TV channel, Sheikh Al-Sadiq recalled that Haftar did not agree to the ceasefire in the first place, asking "with whom did the GNA agree with; was the ceasefire virtually established to say it had been breached?”

The Tripoli-based House of Representatives (HoR) has cited obscure arrangements for the political talks in Geneva for its suspension of participation, according to a letter sent by the HoR Speaker Hamouda Sayala to the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

The HoR Speaker said breaches of the truce in Tripoli by Khalifa Haftar's forces are still ongoing, leading to several civilian casualties and damage to infrastructure due to the systematic attacks on vital facilities and institutions in and around the capital.
