1/We submitted discovery requests to @CIA, @DHSgov, @USCIS & @StateDept for records re: #Libyan warlord #KhalifaHifter, incl re his US citizenship.

Hifter said to have come to US through #CIA & granted USCIT. Yet Libyan law precludes his presidential candidacy if dual CIT.
2/More importantly, if #Hifter is USCIT then @DOJCrimDiv/@TheJusticeDept can prosecute him for alleged war crimes under US law.

Sadly @POTUS Administration never responded to my letter below, nor did Trump Administration when I wrote then AG Bill Barr.

END/Federal agencies were asked to respond to our discovery requests by May 2, 2022.

We are scheduled to depose #Hifter on May 9, 2022.

The war in #Ukraine will bring a sea change in the #Libyan crisis

#JeuneAfrique kindly included a few of my thoughts on why observers really ought to brace for substantial side effects, not just minor ones.

[ thread on the #Russia facet of the #Libya reality c. 2022 ]
Since the Feb. 24 launch of the invasion of Ukraine, apart from lots of unfounded speculation, there’s been not a shred of evidence to suggest any number of #Russian fighters have left Libya.

In fact, over the last several months, the number of Russians in #Brak has increased.
Historically, 1 of the top reasons #Russia has acquired a clandestine #military presence in #Libya is the fact that it’s key strategic territory on #NATO’s southern flank. The #Ukraine crisis of 2014 deepened the Kremlin’s perception of NATO as hostile to Russia’s core interests.

In joint statements, Fragogiannis called for the withdrawal of foreign troops from Libya and noted that Greece had been the first country to open up a consulate in Benghazi and was the first country to arrive in Libya with a business delegation.
“What stands out in Greek-Libyan relations is that Greece has never harmed Libya nor borne any hostility toward Libya,” Issa said, lauding Greece’s beneficial influence in the Mediterranean and the world.

Today’s #Yiakl #SundaySpotlight goes out to Lidiya T @KitchaFitFit1 in acknowledgment of her consistent, creative and pragmatic actions that she undertakes to support #Eritrean refugees in #Libya.

#Yiakl #WeAreComingHome #Eritrea2020 ImageImage
Lidiya is a 21 years old prominent activist & organizer who has been passionately involved with her Eritrean community from a very young age.

Ever since she witnessed the daunting & overwhelming plight of Eritrean refugees in Libya, Lidiya got determined not to sit back & watch.
Instead, she picked up the slack left by the organizations which simply abandoned these refugees, and found a way to provide financial and moral support to these refugees and make meaningful contributions to help ease their suffering.

++ PUSH-BACK to Libya feared! ++

RCC #Malta & the Armed Forces are failing to rescue the ~27 people in distress. Despite being repeatedly alerted by us, no rescue has been carried out. The boat has drifted into the contested #Libyan SAR zone & the people are still at sea. 1/3 Image
The cargo vessel #ETIENNE of the company @MaerskTankers is monitoring the boat but not rescuing the people. We have strong concerns that both #Malta and the cargo vessel are waiting for the so-called Libyan coastguards to come and forcibly return the people to a warzone. 2/3
A push-back to Libya would violate their right to protection and to be disembarked at a port of safety. We call on RCC Malta & @MaerskTankers to comply with intern. law & ensure a rescue and not a forced return to a place where the migrants have to fear for their lives. 3/3

In conversations allegedly secretly taped by the late #Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, former #Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim reportedly said that the #AlJazeera news organisation is controlled by the #MuslimBrotherhood.. 1/
...and was heard discussing how to direct the network’s coverage with the country’s former emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani.

The unverified recordings were posted on social media by a Qatari opposition activist.
The #MuslimBrotherhood is of course the oldest and most pervasive #Islamist group in the #MiddleEast, using both violent and non-violent means to attempt to impose a version of #politicisedIslam as the government on all regional nations.

Watch the #GNA's Jihadists playing with the Mi-35 heavy attack helicopter of #Libya National Air Force which they captured in Abu Aisha Agricultural Aviation Airport in Southeast of #Tripoli oday. For sure this helicopter is now badly damaged & can't be repaired.
Here the Mi-35 with 856 serial number can be seen grounded in the hangar in Abu Aisha airport in southeast of #Tripoli when it was captured by the #GNA today. It was last seen operational in #Libya National Air Force service back in November 2019.
That's the newest helicopter in whole #Libya. AW.139 with 2902 serial number was delivered #Libyan Arab Air Force just few months before the revolution in 2010. It is now dumped in Abu Aisha airport together with a wrecked Police Agusa A-109Es & a Police AW.139. ImageImageImage

[ Thread: Internationalized #manpower in the war for #Tripoli ]
Long before #Ankara began sending #Syrian Turkmen fighters in Dec to help the #GNA, the number of gung-ho fighters willing to go risk their lives on behalf of the #LNA in W #Libya was insufficient.

That is an important reality even if pro-#LNA voices are loathe to acknowledge it
That’s why the #LNA has used #Sudanese mercs throughout 2019. On LNA side, Sudanese mercs have been basically part of the furniture, eliciting little comment.

Above issue is also the reason why the arrival of a few hundred #Russian fighters near #Tripoli in Sep had a big effect.
