Head of the Libyan National Army Khalifa Haftar directly accused Qatar and other countries he did not name of supporting terrorist groups in Libya by financing mercenaries and extremist groups.

Haftar said in a statement issued Sunday evening that the army is monitoring “the Chadian, Sudanese and African communities in general and the Arab countries in the Libyan arena that entered as a result of the lack of control over the border, which was supported through regional countries and countries supporting terrorism.”

He added that some of these people received “money from the Qatar as well as from other countries and terrorist groups inside Libya,” stressing that “the armed forces are monitoring them, and the consequences these mercenaries suffer at the hands of the security services will be grave.”

The commander-in-chief of the army also strictly prohibited foreigners carrying weapons inside Libya, even if they call for the assistance of the Libyan people, stressing “any foreigner carrying arms in Libya will be arrested and punished collectively or individually.”
