A spokesman for the US State Department, commenting on the decision of a court in Virginia to find Khalifa Haftar liable for war crimes, said that the United States does not interfere in judicial decisions that are not directly related to it.

The spokesperson added to the Italian agency "Nova", that the US remains deeply concerned about the alleged human rights violations committed by the parties involved in the conflict in Libya.

The spokesperson emphasized that the United States has repeatedly reiterated the need to hold those responsible for violations of international humanitarian law to account.

Haftar is facing accusations of responsibility for multiple war crimes committed by his forces and mercenaries under his control against civilians, especially during the siege of Ganfouda, and the amount of compensation will be determined during a separate session, knowing that the victims requested more than 50 million dollars, according to Nova.
