Chairman of Libya’s former General National Congress, Nuri Abu Sahmain, has congratulated the Libyan army forces and the Libyan people for the new victories achieved in the city of Tarhuna and paid tribute to the families of martyrs and those wounded, hoping them a speedy recovery.

Speaking to Tanasuh channel, Abu Sahmain stressed the necessity to allocate an emergency budget in order to treat the wounded and help the families of the martyrs.

He also focused on the suffering of the displaced persons who lost their homes and property due to Haftar's aggression on Tripoli and elsewhere.

"It is time for the officials to take a serious stance towards the suffering of the displaced, and not repeat the same mistakes with the IDPs of Benghazi, Derna, Ajdabiya, and other cities," said Abu Sahmain, acknowledging that no official at the current or previous stages can excuse himself from neglecting the people of the south.  

Abu Sahmain thanked the countries that stood with the Libyan people, especially Turkey and Qatar, and praised the courage and role of the forces assisting the Libyan army.

"The revolutionaries never failed to respond to the call of duty in confronting the enemies and defending the homeland," he said, underlining that the revolutionaries must be a priority to any future cabinet.

The Libyan army declared Friday the liberation of Tarhuna city from the grip of Haftar's militias, just one day after expelling them from Tripoli.
