Libya’s Gryan missiles expose Qatar-Sarraj relationship
Libya’s Gryan missiles expose Qatar-Sarraj relationship

Adding to the “shameful” Doha record, and its “malicious” agenda aiming at destabilizing security and stability and spreading chaos in the region, a new Qatari conspiracy was revealed a couple of days ago—it is in Libya this time.

The Paris-based Africa Intelligence website, which is close to the Western intelligence services, provided evidence of the involvement of Qatar and the government of Fayez al-Sarraj in the discovery of US Jafflin missiles in the city of Gryan, south of the Libyan capital.

The site revealed in a special report a suspicious relationship between al-Sarraj and Michael Solman who is a partner in Mercury Public Relations and is concurrently a senior adviser to US Senator Robert Menendez. Menendez has called for an investigation into the missile.

The report said the US company, which has been providing services to al-Sarraj since last April, is also working for the Qatari government.

Tucking missiles to cover up the Gryan massacre

These facts confirm the involvement of the Tripoli militias in “tucking” 3 US missiles in the Libyan National Army warehouse in Gryan, in an attempt to accuse the Libyan army of obtaining missiles in violation of international law.

“The militias are trying as usual to fabricate the charges. This is not new to them. They have brought arms shipments from Bulgaria before, and they have also been helped by Qatar to obtain weapons through their smuggling,” Libyan political expert Abdel Basset Bin Hamel explained to Sky News Arabia.

Bin Hamel stressed that the methods of the armed militias supported by Turkey and Qatar are exposed. Even the weapons, they want to implicate the Libyan army with, can be traced through its serial number.

“This incident is very similar to the refugee case when satellite images revealed their lies and plotting ,” said the political expert Abdulhakim Maatouk.

The two experts agreed that the operation of missiles in the Libyan army warehouse is a desperate attempt by al-Sarraj government to cover up the terrible massacre committed by the Tripoli militias against the wounded soldiers of the Libyan National Army in the city of Gryan a few days ago. It happened that Tripoli militias stormed a hospital in the city and 40 soldiers from the Libyan army were brutally killed.

Sarraj-Mercury Deal

The story of al-Sarraj and “Mercury” started in the beginning of April. Al-Sarraj contracted with the company working in the field of public relations, in order to try to change the US opinion about the Libyan National Army.

The company has special ties with the Qatari regime. It works for Doha and is constantly seeking to improve the image of the country.

“The deal is aimed at promoting Fayez Al-Sarraj and pressuring the White House, but it has failed completely. The US administration does not rely on reports from short-sighted organizations like this,” Bin Hamel explained.

The Politeko, revealed details of the agreement between al-Sarraj and Mercury. Data showed that al-Sarraj is spending $ 150,000 per month from the Central Bank of Libya and $ 1.8 million per year for the company.

Bin Hamel described the massive transfers as “a systematic robbery of Libyan funds carried out by al-Sarraj.”

As Qatar’s relentless attempts to stop the Libyan National Army’s march towards liberating the Libyan capital Tripoli from armed militias continue, observers expect the pace of “scandals” that reflect Doha’s failure to achieve this goal to be more predictable.
