Withdrawal from Sirte and Jufra to be carried out gradually, Libyan official says

The member of the Military Joint Commission of 10 for the Government of National Accord (GNA) Al-Fituri Ghribil said all forces will be withdrawing from Sirte and Jufra gradually as the two areas are considered lines of contacts as per the latest agreement made by the two parties in Ghadames.

Ghribil told Libya Alahrar TV on Wednesday that the gradual work of the committees will focus on the pullout of the mercenaries first as well as the heavy weapons until all forces are returned to their previous positions as before April 04 2019.

He also said that the area to be covered by the joint force after the withdrawal of the forces will be from south Soukna – Fuqahaa Checkpoint – to Abu Grein westward and Ben Jawad eastward.

Ghribil said the joint police force from all across Libya will be tasked with securing the area from which the forces will pull out, adding that all forces will be withdrawing from the regions, cities and towns in which there were armed conflicts across the country; starting with Sirte and Jufra.

He explained that the forces from Benghazi, Misrata and Tripoli will all return to their previous positions as before the war.
