A video clip, which was posted on social media, showed a group of mercenaries intimidating the residents of Murzuq and threatening them with displacement, stressing that they will not leave the city and will remain in control.

This came against the background of the residents of Murzuq’s calls and demands for the Government of National Unity (GNU) to postpone the activation of the city’s reconstruction fund temporarily, until those families who were forced to leave can return, emphasizing the immediate necessity to expel the armed Chadian mercenaries.

The Chadian mercenaries, loyal to Haftar, had committed many crimes and atrocities in the city of Murzuq, causing the forced displacement of approximately 5,000 families of its residents, who had to flee from the city to safety.
