Chairman of the Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sarraj, deplored the deadlock in the Security Council and the lack of consensus of its members towards the recent developments in Tripoli.

In an interview with BBC Arabic, Al-Sarraj condemned the silence of his international allies regarding the advance of Haftar's forces towards Tripoli, pointing out that the divisions in the international community may lead to the re-scenario of 2011 where the international community turned its back on Libya, as he put it.

Al-Sarraj also emphasized the need to hold Haftar and his forces accountable for the brutal and barbaric attacks on the capital, warning at the same time of the use of ISIS extremist group to the state of chaos caused by the forces of Haftar, as he described.
