The Head of Moral Motivation at the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalid Al-Mahjoub has indicated that armed groups under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) have been failing in convincing young men to fight for them and that is why they have fallen back upon ‘Chadian mercenaries.’
Al-Mahjoub told Al-Ain news agency that the LNA’s warplanes are now in full control of the airspace in Libya, referring to the latest series of airstrikes on different GNA’s positions in which they destroyed the takeoff locations of Turkish drones.
He also explained that GNA’s forces are taking their last “gasps” as the GNA has spend massive amounts of money to enlist Chadian mercenaries’ support in a desperate attempt to boost the numbers of its fighters on the ground.
Earlier, the member of Murzuq municipality Atiqa Bashir spoke to 218TV earlier and said that the attacking forces were holding the logo of South Protection Force affiliated with the Presidential Council of the GNA.
Likewise, the mayor of Sabha in southern Libya, Hamid Al-Khayali, has accused the GNA of funding and supporting terrorist groups including Chadian nationals in their attacks on the city two weeks ago, thus; helping them displace hundreds of residents.
