TRIPOLI

Hundreds of Libyans protested Friday against Gen. Khalifa Haftar, who leads forces opposed to the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) in Libya.

They gathered in the capital and in Misrata after the call of civil society organizations to protest attacks by Haftar forces and demand protection of the legal government.

Protesters in Tripoli chanted for Egypt, France and the United Arab Emirates to “take their hands of Libya” with posters of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, France’s Emmanuel Macron and Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
