In a statement issued on Monday, the Libyan parliament called on the Ministry of Justice to prepare an integrated file on the damages caused to Libya and its people by the support of Qatar for extremist groups after a decision to sever official diplomatic relations with Doha.

They also urged to refer the file to International Criminal Court, calling on the United Nations Security Council and the ICC to open an international investigation into the crimes of Qatar in Libya in support of extremism and terrorists.


Seven countries, including Libya's eastern-based government, announced they are severing ties with Qatar because of the Gulf country’s support for terrorist organizations like ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood, in addition to their hostile behavior through their foreign policy decisions.

Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Yemen, Maldives and Mauritius announced cutting ties with Qatar and closing their borders and airspace on Monday.
