Libyan Jihadists Targeted by Egypt and UAE

Tuesday, August 26, 2014 (3:53 am) | Worthy News / World News

CAIRO (Worthy News)– Egypt and the United Arab Emirates have been accused of launching air strikes on Islamist militias in Libya, World Tribune reported.

Anti-government militias operating in Tripoli said they have come under attack from aircraft sent by Egypt and the UAE. They said the two Arab states, both of which operate the U.S.-origin F-16 multi-role fighter, launched at least three strikes around Tripoli International Airport, captured by the militias in late August.

"The Emirates and Egypt are involved in this cowardly aggression," a statement by a leading militia, Operation Libyan Dawn, said.

The militias said the air strikes were coordinated with the provisional Libyan government as well as Gen. Khalifa Haftar. Haftar, who claimed responsibility for fighter-jet operations on Tripoli, has been regarded as working for Egypt and Gulf Cooperation Council states to restore order in Libya. — Source
