Wednesday 14th July 2016. Chancellor of HoR Aguila Saleh promotes Khalifa Haftar to rank of Field Marshall for services rendered to the Libyan people and unification of Tribes and Militias.
Despite warnings from the USA calling on Libya Arab Army Forces to withdraw from the oil Crescent, just 4 days after the operation, Leaders of Misrata Militias announce they will not be challenging the Army or engaging them in combat.
The Oil Guard Militias controlled by Chadian Criminal Ibrahim Jadran (brother of Senior Daesh Leader in Sirte) mostly deserted him after receiving their back pay, and thousands of them have ‘disappeared’ – leaving Ras Lanuf easy for the taking and keeping. Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar handed over the dealings of the oil Cresent to the Libyan Oil Institution as soon as the area was secured, and exports resume this evening with China as first Customer.
Army spokesman Ahmed Bessemer has issued a statement this evening warning all Militias that have seized property belonging to Civilians in the area around Ras Lanuf to vacate them immediately – and begins the job of restoring order and normality to the area.
Despite Western Media Silence on the Fight against Daesh/ISIS in the Eastern Regions with MSM focusing on US Airstrike Assisted attacks on Sirte by the Misrata Militias, the Libyan Arab Army based in Tobruk has earned the hearts and minds of all Libyans, culminating in their defence of the City as Daesh/ISIS Terrorists that fled from Sirte upped their efforts and attacks on Benghazi with help from their Allies Benghazi Shura Revolutionaries and Al Qaeda. Over 4000 soldiers have sacrificed their lives, over 8000 civilians maimed and numerous more are dead. But the Libyan Spirit is very strong one, and despite Sanctions, threats and as many hurdles as the USA and their allies could throw at them, the Libyan Arab Army under Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar has been the most successful at fighting Terrorism in Libya and has earned the respect and love of the people.
Rumours have abounded Globally that Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar is a CIA bogeyman, but the reaction from the USA at his rising Popularity, Sanctions on both him and Media appertaining to him and recent anlsysis in major USA Press has finally rinsed the Field Marshall from the rumours. His priority is Libya.
