Libyan army spokesman Colonel Ahmed al-Mesmari revealed on Wednesday night documents showing Qatar’s interference in Libya.

“Since 2012, Qatar has not been dealt with because of its role in supporting terrorist groups in Libya,” he told a news conference in Benghazi. “Qatar's destructive role in Libya will soon end.”

He added that Hamas was also involved in the conflicts in Libya.

The Libyan ambassador in Riyadh, announced on Monday that the President of the House of Representatives Aqila Saleh announced the severing relations with Qatar and the withdrawal of the ambassador.

This came after Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE, Bahrain and Yemen decided to sever ties with Qatar and accused them of supporting terrorism.

Earlier, the government of eastern Libya severed ties with Qatar because of its “black record” in the country, since the revolution that toppled the regime of Muammar Gaddafi.
