The documents reveal the involvement of Qatari officials in increasing the divisions within Libya through the spread of Qatari military forces on Libyan territory and the attempt to control several areas, most notably Mu'tika and Misurata.

In addition, the country was flooded with billions of dollars to corrupt Libyan society by exploiting the economic conditions of some its citizens. The funds were also used to support former prisoners in Libya to become leaders.

Among the Qatari officials involved were Mohammed Hamad al-Hajri, acting charge of affaires at the Qatari embassy in Libya, and Qatari intelligence General Salim Ali al-Jarboui, who served as Qatar's military attache in North Africa.

In addition, an attempt was made to assassinate the current army commander, General Khalifa Hafter at the former headquarters in the Abyar area, east of Benghazi.

Documents and videos showed that Hamas leaders trained the extremist elements in Libya in techniques for bombings and triggering explosions. Qatari planning was behind all the bombings carried out in Libya. The Khan Yunis brigade provided technical assistance to the terrorists on Libyan territory.

Benghazi was the scene of a major crime, when Qatar’s planes landed on Libyan territory at Benina International Airport to provide terrorists with advanced weapons, specifically to what is known as the The Revolutionary Council of Benghazi.
