The Government of National Accord (GNA) accused warlord Khalifa Haftar's forces of inhumane behaviour and criminality in dealing with prisoners, saying that this proves that it is far from the doctrine of the army, which was found to protect the homeland and not to bomb civilians.

"The acts of mutilation of bodies committed by the forces of Haftar are a blatant violation of all religions and laws," the GNA stated, asserting that such acts put the perpetrators under indictment as war criminals.

The statement stressed that actions regarding the punishment of these offenders will be taken immediately, calling on the pro-Haftar media to stop falsifying facts and refrain from broadcasting speeches of incitement.
