The elders of coastal, mountain, central and Greater Tripoli areas have started filing lawsuits against Libyan tribes which called for Egyptian military intervention in Libya.

The elders denounced in a statement signed in Tarhouna the reception of decision makers and parliament in Egypt for a group of Libyans who claimed to represent Libyan tribes but in fact, they only represent themselves.

What Egypt did was a violation of international law and UN resolutions on Libya, which is still under Chapter 07 of UN Charter, they said, adding that they will devise a letter to be sent to the Foreign Ministry to ask the Security Council and International Criminal Court to file lawsuits against Egyptian Parliament for approving sending military troops to Libya, as well as against countries supporting Haftar.

The elders called for regaining people's rights after being violated by Al-Kani militias and asked the House of Representatives in Tripoli to replace all boycotting members with others representing their electoral areas.

So-called tribal elders loyal to Haftar met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and asked for military intervention of Egyptian Army in Libya to assist Haftar's forces against what they called Turkish occupation.
