Libya Scholars Association: Islam urges for defending muslims all over the world

by on 23 December 2019

The Libyan Scholars Association said it is very important to activate the security and military agreement between Turkey and Libya to defend Tripoli.

The remarks came in an emergency conference for the association to discuss the offensive of Khalifa Haftar’s forces on Tripoli. The association said Islam urges for defending muslims all over the world.

It also added in a statement that the scholars are considering issuing a fatwa about the sharia ruling over “attempts to topple the legitimacy of the Government of National Accord, which is recognized by the international community”.

“Some Arab countries are working on destroying Libya. Libyans’ blood is on the hands of the religious scholars of those countries”. The statement reads.

They explained that Haftar’s forces used “Christians and atheists to invade Tripoli”.

On Saturday, the Turkish Parliament approved the security and military MoU with Libya, knowing that the President Council’s government okayed it last Thursday.
