The Director of the Moral Guidance Department at the Libyan National Army (LNA)’s General Command, Major General Khaled al-Mahjoub, said that the armed forces thwarted the Muslim Brotherhood’s expansionist ambitions and terrorist plots in Libya and the region. He said the Islamist organisation wanted to turn Libya into a terrorist colony, by brainwashing Libyan youth and supporting militias and extremist organizations.

(LIBYA, 18 May 2021) – LNA’s Major General Khaled al-Mahjoub, in a statement to the Libya Al-Hadath channel on Monday said: “If it were not for the grace of God and the sacrifices of the army and patriots who gave their children to eliminate Muslim Brotherhood terrorism, Libya would have become a terrorist colony in its entirety.”

Al-Mahjoub pointed out that the Muslim Brotherhood were the first to fight the armed forces, and promoted crime, chaos, and undermined the social fabric, especially in areas under the control of the armed forces.
