Deputy chief of the Presidential Council, Ali al-Qatrani announced his resignation and voiced his support for the Libyan National Army’s (LNA) operation on the capital Tripoli.

He said that Government of National Accord (GNA) head Fayez al-Sarraj was being “controlled” by militias and such action “will only lead Libya towards more suffering and division.”

In a statement, he hailed the LNA march on Tripoli that is aimed at ridding it of terrorist and criminal gangs.

Through the encouragement of these militias, Sarraj has violated the political agreement on Libya by abusing the privileges granted to him as head of the Presidential Council, Qatrani charged.
