Tripoli Protection Force (TPF), a coalition of armed brigades in the capital, has declared its rejection to the military dictatorship, accusing warlord Khalifa Haftar of attempting to rule the country by mean of force, denying the Libyan people from electing their representatives through democratic means.
“We express our utter rejection to the project of war criminal Khalifa Haftar who seeks to rule the country with the blood of the Libyan people and with funding from an external agenda that does not seek stability and prosperity of Libya.” A statement by the TPF said late on Thursday.
The TPF also rejected the military operation in the south by Khalifa Haftar’s self-styled army. It said the operation aims to “destroy capabilities, wealth and social fabric of the south.”
The force affirmed its readiness to fight those who try to undermine security and stability of Libya, in an implicit reference to Haftar, calling for transparent elections to build a state of law and institutions.
The statement of TPF came as Dignity Operation vowed to continue its war in the south.
