The head of Misrata Municipal Council, Ibrahim Bait El-Mal, denied, Sunday night, what media reported about the existence of British advisors inside the city of Misrata, adding that “such news are totally untrue”.
Bait El-Mal, who is also vice president of the security chamber in central military region, told Al-Wasat website that “the troops of Misrata military council are ready to thwart any terrorist attack waged by the Islamic State (IS) and carry out military operations”.
He added that Misrata military council forces participate in the central security chamber, and positioned at all city entrances and military gates from Abu-Grain, Weshka in the east, to Zliten and Garara Al-Gatf in the south.
