Benghazi Defense Brigades (BDB) denounced involving its name in political and military conflicts in western Libya, saying they are away from any acts across Libya and are only focusing on Benghazi.

According to Yasir Al-Jabali, a senior commander at the BDB, they are only after toppling the military coup of Khalifa Haftar in east Libya and returning IDPs to Benghazi, as well as breaking the siege in some eastern cities and districts.

Some parties accused BDB of positioning in Sabratha city as a takeoff for its operations.
