The Libyan Chief of General Staff, Mohammed Al-Haddad, said the military institution is neutral to political polarization as well as the fait accompli situation, adding that he won't allow plunging the institution and armed factions into power-seeking projects.
Al-Haddad, speaking at a cabinet meeting of the Government of National Unity (GNU) in Tripoli on Tuesday, said the country is in a dangerous situation and the army is going to take a nonbiased side in this political strife. He added that those who took up arms for the change in Libya are now left helpless on streets due to war.
"We have seen some stability since the advent of the GNU. We need to maintain it until a real change is done through elections. The use of military and conflicts for power won't be allowed this time." Al-Haddad said.
He also thanked GNU Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah for the stability achieves by his government, referring to a negative roles by some countries that continue to encourage violence and conflict among Libyans.
