A video shared yesterday on social media featured an Egyptian belonging to ISIS confessing about taking part in moving weapons on behalf of terrorist organizations in Libya.

The man named Yehia Abdul Monem Naguib spoke about operations to store weapons in the city of Benghazi and listed names of terrorist leaders responsible for the bombings and assassinations that took place in Libya.

Naguib said he came to Libya in search of work and stayed in Derna for only two days. He then moved to Benghazi where he worked in a sheep market.

There he was contacted by a Libyan man called Fawzi al-Mushaiti who offered large sums of money in exchange for storing and moving weapons to Mali and Syria, which he accepted.

Naguib stored the weapons in underground locations in Qawarsha and Hawari in Benghazi. He hid explosives and rifles and large and small size mortar shells and other ammunitions.

Bombings, assassinations 

He revealed that Faraj al-Faidi who is responsible for the bombings of police stations in Libya, belongs to the Ansar al-Sharia organization, and that his brother Younis al-Faidi, is in charge of the military operations in the organization.

He also revealed that the man behind the assassinations is called Ahmad al-Naa'as. He added that al-Maanqosh chief of staff of the Libyan army in 2013 supported the group with weapons and had sent 100 equipped military vehicles to Mali.


Naguib also said that a Tunisian leader named Abu Ayadh al-Tunisi came to Benghazi to see the weapons before they were sent to Tunisia.

He was arrested by the Libyan army forces when he was on his way to the city of Sirte to train on using arms after he was asked to engage in combat as well.
