Libyan Foreign Ministry urges Security Council, ICC to indict Haftar for war crimes

Libya’s Foreign Ministry urged the UN Security Council to take a stand against rocket attacks by warlord Khalifa Haftar’s militias that struck dangerously close to the Turkish and Italian foreign missions in Tripoli. 

The Foreign Ministry said the attacks of Haftar’s militias violated the Vienna Convention, so the UN should take action in line with its historical responsibility to promote peace and stability, according to a letter by Libyan Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala to the Security Council.

Last week, Khalifa’s forces carried out rocket attacks on Mitiga Airport and struck areas near residence of the Turkish and Italian foreign missions.

Sayala also called on the International Criminal Court to indict Haftar for all the crimes he had committed in his war against Tripoli and in his attacks on civilians across Libya.
