The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Defense of the Presidential Council, Uhidah Najem, dismissed on Monday Brigadier Mohammed Al-Ghosri from his post as the official spokesperson of the ministry. 

Najem said that the decision came with the instructions of the Chairman of the Presidential Council, Fayaz Al-Sarraj, but he gave no information on the motives behind the dismissal.

On Sunday, Al-Ghosri said in a press statement that the current meetings in Cairo regarding the unification of the Libyan army are frivolous, adding that it will fail because it lacks transparency, calling for the meetings to be held in Libya and to be based on a clear plan.
