Al-Sarraj: Only Libyans will fight the IS


The Chief of the Presidential Council (PC) of the Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez Al-Sarraj, asserted his refusal to any military intervention in Libya to fight against the Islamic State group (IS).

“Ending the IS in Libya is an essential matter within a national project that stipulates uprooting IS by Libyan hands,” he stated in his speech in front of the Islamic Summit conference in Istanbul.

Several European countries have implied their readiness to send troops to Libya to help in fighting the IS on the demand of the GNA.

The Foreign and Defense ministries of European countries are to meet on Monday in Luxemburg to study sending missions to train Libyan police and border guards.
