Presidency Council Issues Statement Over Events In The South.

Tripoli, The Presidency Council of the Government of National Accord has issued a statement in which it said the southern region in Libya is facing a blatant aggression by mercenary gangs coming cross the border, which not only robbed and pillaged but went as far as to kill Libyan nationals. The Council saluted what it called 'the patriotic standup to thwart this aggression by the sons of the South.' The Council stressed that proper and deterrent measures would be taken against these mercenaries and whoever dare violate the Libyan territory. It said the mercenaries were driven by the political division in Libya to infiltrate the country, calling on Libyans to close ranks and to shoulder their responsibilities to protect the homeland.
