The Mufti of Libya Al-Saddiq Al-Gharyani said "Egyptian ruler's statements about arming tribes in Libya and intervening militarily in the country are an attempt to export his country's problems and an escape forward from the crippling crises in Egypt." 

The Mufti told a Tanasuh TV Channel program on Wednesday that Egyptian ruler (President) was aiming to keep the Egyptian public busy with Libya statements to distract them from the crises inside, adding that Egypt had already been intervening in Libya to support Haftar with arms, officers and intelligence, since the start of the latter's coup project.

"The Egyptian ruler will continue to support the coup project and no more. This is as far as he can get. He chooses to intervene in Libya instead of resolving Egyptian issues such as the water dam crisis with Ethiopia which could inflict drought on Egyptian farmers' lands, thus leaving them unemployed; a thing than can worsen Egypt's crises." The Mufti added, also referring to many fields of services that are lacking attention of the government in Egypt, such as health sectors amid the pandemic of Coronavirus.

The Libyan Mufti indicated that the international community gave the Egyptian President authority to destabilize Libya, saying he is tasked to work for the benefit of "Zionist enemies" agaisnt the Islamic nation.
