Al-Kufra municipality has decried linking the city and its Subul Al-Salam Brigade to the conflict in Sudan by media reports, denying the presence of any mercenaries in the city or even any incoming immigrants or refugees from Sudan.
The statement denied the presence of any mercenaries or armed groups in Al-Kufra, stressing that all legal measures would be taken against those who “defame the city and its history”.
It also called on local media to pay attention not to help promote fake news because of the impact it would have on the country’s sovereignty.
Africa Intelligence said that “since the start of the conflict in Sudan, convoys of petrol and arms have been seen moving towards Libya’s border with Sudan in the area controlled by Subu al-Salam. These movements suggest that there is contact between the militia and Hemeti’s RSF.”
