The Supreme Council of Amazigh in Libya has said that Haftar's attempts to intimidate the safe people in the region will only make them more determined to repel his aggression.

In a statement Monday, the council said that the bombing of a civilian airstrip in Kabaw town by Haftar's air force is a serious escalation and a violation of international law, calling on the UN mission to abide by its legal and moral responsibilities towards the aggression targeting the Amazigh in Mount Nafusa.

"Haftar's actions towards Mount Nafusa are a violation of international conventions relating to indigenous peoples; in particular, the United Nations Declaration in this regard, which was signed by Libya," the statement read.
