Dangerous ISIS Operative Released by RADA Slaughters His Family in Tripoli – Al Marsad

The capital, Tripoli, witnessed on Friday morning a horrendous massacre committed by an ISIS extremist recently released from a prison of the Presidential Council’s Special Deterrence Forces (RADA) as part of their systematic programme of releasing dangerous extremists.

(Libya, 15 August 2020) – The terrorist Ibrahim al-Ammari, a 30-year-old former prisoner of the RADA Special Deterrence Forces for 4 years due to his affiliation to the ISIS terrorist group in Sirte where he was a leader, slaughtered his father, mother, sister and his 4-year-old nephew at their family home in Tripoli.

According to security and local sources, the crime was motivated by his extremist beliefs. RADA Special Deterrence Forces issued no comment. In 2015, doctors who diagnosed Ibrahim al-Ammari at the Tripoli Medical Centre, recommended psychiatric supervision and that he suffered from “obsessional religion”.

The Bab Tajoura Battalion stationed in the house of Moatasim Billah Gaddafi in the adjacent al-Dhil Street arrested the terrorist. The Bab Tajura Battalion, however, transferred him again to the RADA’s prison at Mitiga—the same prison where he was an inmate before his recent release during the war in Tripoli under the broad powers granted to RADA under Fayez al-Sarraj’s notorious decree No. 555.

The RADA Special Deterrence Forces have released many extremists during the war period and used them to fight against the Libyan National Army (LNA). These included operatives of ISIS and terrorists from the Benghazi and Derna Shura Councils. The radical Islamist cleric Sadiq al-Gharyani, currently residing in Turkey, and his followers are still demanding the release of the rest of the extremists, claiming that they are “revolutionaries”.

The release of terrorists from RADA prisons have take placed under various pretexts spurred by internal and external political and military pressures.

Turkish intelligence also ordered many of these terrorists to be released while others were released via social and regional mediations and fake pledges as gestures of good-faith by RADA towards those they describe as “Madkhalis”.

With the presence of ISIS terrorists in Tripoli, and the large presence of Syrian terrorists, the capital city of Tripoli is becoming once again a hub for Islamist terrorists, with a noticeable spike in the rate of kidnappings, extortion, arrests, and killings.
