The High Council of State (HCS) has expressed deep concern over the airstrikes targeting the Libyan Army forces, assigned to protect and secure the city of Sirte.

“These foreign-operated airstrikes on Libyan territory, in support of the criminal gangs led by war criminal Haftar, demonstrates its intention to expand the circle of conflict and wars in Libya," the HCS stated.

It added that the targeting of the Protection Force of Sirte, which serves as an effective barrier against the threat of ISIS, shows the desire of these gangs, and the countries behind them, to bring back terrorism to Sirte and the whole region."
