A source in the Libyan Presidency Council stated that a group of leaders of the “Volcano of Anger” operation gathered in front of the Corinthia Hotel, which hosts one of the Council’s headquarters, to protest against Hussein’s assignment to head the intelligence services, and against the foreign ministry’s assignment of Najla Al-Manqoush, which they consider loyal to Operation Dignity, but the Borkan operation Anger denied the published reports about storming the hotel or surrounding it.
The leaders of Operation Volcano of Fury held a large meeting in Tripoli, in which they rejected the recent assignments of the Presidency Council.
The spokesman for the media center for the operation of the volcano of anger, Mustafa Al-Majai, rejected any bid on the role of the Volcano of Anger forces in protecting the homeland, and defeating, pursuing and chasing tyrants, corrupt and delusive people, for the return of individual, family and military rule, according to him.
The Mukhtar of al-Jahawi, the commander of the Spring Valley axis in the operation of the volcano of anger, the commander of the reserve division of the anti-terror force, said, “There is no storming of the hotel nor besieging, but rather a desire of the Volcano of Anger forces to meet with the President of the Presidential Council to discuss several matters.”
Al-Jahawi confirmed the support of the Borkan al-Fath forces to the Presidential Council, the Government of National Unity, and the civil state, but indicated that the Volcano of Fury operation wanted to clarify some matters such as the violations of the other side, in reference to the forces of retired Major General Khalifa Haftar.
He added that their demands are for the ceasefire to be in effect on both sides, indicating the continued arrival of support for Haftar’s forces, and that the decisions of the Supreme Commander of the Army be applied to all parties and not to a specific party, indicating that Haftar’s forces do not comply with the decisions of the Supreme Commander of the Army.
For her part, the spokeswoman for the Presidency Council, Najwa Wahiba, said – in a tweet on Twitter – that “the storming that took place tonight in Tripoli was a storming of a hotel, not the headquarters of the Presidency Council, which does not have a permanent headquarters for meetings.”
“The site is one of the council’s meeting headquarters, and today is a weekly holiday, not a work day, and no one was harmed,” she added.
