Libyan army spokesman Colonel Ahmed al-Mesmari has described Qatar, Sudan and Turkey as “the triad of terrorism" in Libya”.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Colonel al-Mesmari said: “The battle of our Libyan army is not with Libyan terrorists, but with transnational terrorism,” he said. Al-Mesmari emphasized that the primary supporters of terrorism in Benghazi and Libya as a whole are “Qatar, Sudan and Turkey.”
He revealed that the Army Intelligence Division has managed to trace and monitor a number of messages and calls between Al Jazeera correspondent in Libya and terrorist leaders in the country.
“The evidence confirms that a number of Qatari aircraft are regularly landing in Libya in 2017 to support terrorist groups,” he said.
During his conference, al-Mesmari played a voice recording between an Al Jazeera correspondent and one of the terrorist leaders organizing combat operations in Benghazi against the armed forces and obtaining military supplies from Qatar.
