I wrote Attorney General Barr requesting @TheJusticeDept to own criminal inquiry into #KhalifahHaftar's war criminal activities in #Libya. #Haftar is USCIT & jurisdiction exists under War Crimes Act of 1996 (which I testified before Congress on nearly 25 years ago). ImageImage
In trying to persuade Congress that USGOVT should prosecute #warcriminals, I testified:

"the cries of 'Never forget' that arose out of the ashes of the 6 million murdered in the Holocaust are still sadly being drowned out by the millions that are being murdered today....
....In ensuring that we never forget those who are victimized by such atrocities, we must strive to “always prosecute” those that cause such unjustified and inexcusable suffering."

@elcorreo_com @Reuters 2- El conflicto libio se ha convertido en una mini guerra mundial en la que el gobierno de Trípoli, legitimado por la ONU, tiene el apoyo de Turquía y Catar, mientras que el mariscal rebelde #Haftar, está respaldado por Egipto, Arabia Saudí, Emiratos Árabes, Rusia y Francia
@elcorreo_com @Reuters 3- La línea roja marcada por #Egipto y el resto de aliados de #Haftar es #Sirte, si las tropas progubernamentales lanzan una operación para retomar el control de esta ciudad costera, #Egipto enviará tropas

Short thread - Mass graves discovered recently in #Tarhuna. Since 2011, #Tarhuna has been the scene for some horrific crimes at the hands of a local armed group known as the Kaniyat.
1- Over the years, the Kaniyat formed a number of opportunistic alliances of convenience with various actors including: LIFG figures, Qaddafi loyalists, Misratan factions & their latest alliance with the LNA/#Haftar. #Libya
2- The discovery of the mass graves in #Tarhuna occurred after the fall of the city in the hands of the Turkish backed GNA forces. As with everything else in #Libya this horrific tragedy is being weaponized politically in the ongoing war of narratives by the conflict parties.

The main issue in the East-Mediterranean is the fair distribution of the natural/energy sources...
The origin of the problem is the unjust intention of Greece & SCGA +++

#mavivatan
#Turkey
#Greece
#Egypt
#Israel
#Libanon
to create a maritime zone thereby excluding Turkey and its interests & overriding the rights of other East-Mediterranean riparian countries. By doing so,the 2 countries are violating the rules of international law.
Below, you find the unrealistic claims of Greece & SCGA
#Greece
1982 United Nations Convention for the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) gives the coastal states the right to announce an exclusive economic zone for their territorial waters, but it could be extended further according to region specifics (max 200 sea miles).

This is an example of what #Turkey & #Qatar are doing to #Libya now. After capturing #Tarhuna from #Libya National Army today, #Syrian mercenaries & Islamist militias of #GNA used this #Turkish made Kirpi II MRAP to break into #Tarhuna's Mall before looting every shop there!
This video reminds me occupation of #Mosul by #ISIL/#Daesh in summer 2014. These Islamist militias of #GNA as well as #Turkey backed #Syrian Mercenaries captured city of #Tarhuna from #Libya National Army. They can be seen shooting their guns & terrorizing people.
Watch these #GNA's Islamist militias showing off the weapons & equipment which they have captured from #Libya National Army after occupying the #Tarhuna today. Two BM-21 Grad multiple rocket launchers, several pick-up trucks and ammunition can be seen among the captured weapons.

1) #Turkey and the USA seem to be getting closer over #Libya. Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin has been on local channel NTV tonight, says 'We can't accept the support Russia gives to Haftar, we don’t believe this will support the political process in Libya..... Image
2) '...the US side on the other hand sees that Turkey's involvement in the Libya crisis brought a balance in the situation.' The US ambassador to Libya has also been on the phone to the leader of the UN-backed govt in Libya's capital, Tripoli.

3) Amb pointedly mentions Russia but no one else by name when he talks of '..the urgent need to end the destabilizing flow of Russian and other foreign military equipment and mercenaries into Libya..' Trump and Erdoğan also talked Libya on phone today.

#BREAKING: Today, the #Turkey's Ministry of Foreign Affairs just spread disinformation about delivery of eight fighter jets to #Haftar by #Russia. This is #FakeNews! As a matter of fact, #UAE & #Egypt Air Forces are going to bomb #GNA & #Turkish forces in #Libya not #Russia! ImageImageImage
In fact,#UAE has procured MiG-29BMs & probably Su-24Ms for #Libya National Air Force. They were delivered via #Russia,#Iran & #Syria last week.They are being operated by #Libyan & #Belarusian pilots. All aircraft are ex-#Belarus Air Force examples & are not ex-#Russian Air Force. Image
This is not for first time, that the #Libya National Air Force is operating ex-#Belarus Air Force aircraft. Back in 2014, #UAE procured four Mi-24P heavy attack helicopters from #Belarus for #LNAF to use them against #Turkey & #Qatar backed #Libyan Dawn terrorirsts 👇 Image

Deciphering the #Serraj vs #Kabir squabble.

1 must go back to May-Oct 2018, when both #UN & #US began exerting a pressure on the #CBL in #Tripoli.

At the time, an #LNA attack on the capital wasn't seen as imminent, nor was a #Hibri-#Kabir reunification considered a hot priority
Following #Haftar's Jun '18 #OilCresc blockade, #US (thru the #UN) helped #CBL devise a measure, which was implemented after the Aug-Sep '18 LoC battle in Tripoli.

An LoC #tax now made the de-facto conversion rate 3.9 dinars to 1 $.

$10k packages were introduced for households.
The #US-designed measure—rolled out by #Kabir in Oct ’18—was effectively a devaluation of the dinar w/ the added benefit of attracting banknotes back into the system.

The measure turned out to be a success.

It also reduced the amount of political controversy surrounding #Kabir

Latest UNSMIL report issued on 15th of Jan was obfuscated by other Libya developments (Moscow ceasefire/Berlin) but contains useful info.

A rare reference to 60 precision strikes by foreign fighter jets conducted on behalf of Haftar's LAAF on West Libya.

unsmil.unmissions.org/sites/default/…
On the opposing side, the GNA carried out 250 airstrikes.

The report attributes the recent military academy massacre to "aircraft affiliated with the Libyan National Army", though Salamé was quoted mentioning a foreign state (#UAE) was likely responsible.
Aside a section on developments in West Libya (primarily on the aftermath of Haftar's offensive, its impact on civilians & mercenaries' involvement), the report provides a rare glimpse of the situation in Eastern #Libya, w/ #Benghazi labelled "hub for illicit economic activities"

1. The mess in #Libya is at least as complex as the mess in #Afghanistan: In Afghanistan the #Kabul-government, supported by #NATO, controls little more than Kabul.

In #Libya "Prime Minister" Fayez #Sarraj only controls a small part in the North, around #Tripoli.

#AnneWill
2. While Khalifa #Haftar, the commander of the Libyan National Army (#LNA), controls the larger part of #Libya. He does not control greater #Tripoli and in the South local warlords rule.

#AnneWill #LibyaConference
3. To make things more messy:
The "Prime Minister of Tripolis", Fayez #Sarraj, is supported by
#Turkey (troops in Libya)
#Germany
#EU
#Italy
#Qatar
#UN

#Haftar is supported by
#SaudiArabia
#UAE
#Egypt
#Russia (RUS mercenaries in Libya)
#France (#NATO-partner & #EU)

Being in #Berlin while the preparations for the #Libya Peace Conference were under way, I gave an interview to the excellent @SumangaliS @dwnews about the possible outcomes of Sunday's meeting plus the assessment o the players including #IslamicState. bit.ly/2tsa7q9
@SumangaliS @dwnews My Two cents on #BerlinConference on #Libya:
1- Interesting that a major player, #Morocco, was not invited, while it was instrumental in the accords of #Skhirat.
2- Invited though: #Tunisia, #Algeria and #Qatar, countries favourable to the #GNA. bit.ly/30ET4gA
3- Like in #Moscow, the two #Libya-n parties the #GNA #Serraj & the #LNA #Haftar did NOT meet in #Berlin. Last time they met in an international-sponsored conference was in #France under the leadership of President #Macron.
4- Telling that the photo-op did not include any Libyans

A #ceasefire went into effect in #Libya at midnight as the country’s two rival governments prepared to sign an agreement in #Moscow ahead of a #Berlin conference designed to end the conflict there is planned for later this week. @NarativLive aljazeera.com/news/2020/01/l…
2. The US is one of several countries watching from the sidelines as #Russia and #Turkey consolidate power in #Libya as they have in #Syria and to some extent in #Iraq. @NarativLive
3. The new agreement appears to favor Russian-backed warlord Khalifa #Haftar and his main sponsor Vladimir Putin. @NarativLive

A lot of the questions that came up during @LibyaDesk consultations in #Tunis had to do with the return of former #Gaddafi officials and supporters to the scene.
It came as no surprise that a lot of the available information was false.
This thread will attempt to clarify things.
Since 2011, tribes and figures that supported the former strongman were sidelined and persecuted, forcing many to flee #Libya.
The first return of ‘green’ Libyans (Gaddafi supporters) was in 2014 #Benghazi when #Haftar called on them to assist in the war against #terrorism.
This created a safe zone in east of #Libya which resulted in many families in exile that could no longer afford living in #Egypt or #Tunisia to move to towns in the east.
Politically, the first return of former #Gaddafi officials to political life was due to #Sarraj..
