Canada: Libyans protest in Ottawa against UAE interference


On Friday, dozens of Libyans organized a protest in front of the UAE embassy in the Canadian capital, Ottawa, to condemn the Emirati interference in Libya.

This came according to a video clip of the vigil, which was broadcast by Libyan channels, including “February Channel” (especially), and Anatolia watched it.

During the sit-in, protesters chanted slogans condemning the UAE’s intervention in Libya, and it was supported by the militias of retired Major General Khalifa Haftar, who have been attacking the capital, Tripoli, for months.

The protesters held banners bearing slogans calling on the UAE to stop its “aggression” on Tripoli, such as: “You will not enter it, God willing,” and “This is Libyan Libya, not your Persian islands,” referring to the islands of “Greater Tunb”, “Tunb Al-Sharjah” and “Abu” Musa “located in the Gulf, which Abu Dhabi accuses Iran of occupying.

A statement read by one of the protesters stressed that “the Libyans will not forget their martyrs whose lives have risen as a result of the tyranny of the Emirates,” according to the same source.

The statement added that “Libya and its free people will not fail to register and document the crimes committed by the politicians of the Emirates and its security and military apparatus, and these criminals will be brought before the international court soon.”

He stressed that “the Libyan people are not an enemy of the UAE and its people with whom we have fraternal ties throughout history, but rather your policies that made the UAE lead the terrorism of nations.”

United Nations information and officials of the internationally recognized Libyan Al-Wefaq government confirm the UAE’s extensive interference in Libya and its support for Haftar with weapons and air strikes in his attack on Tripoli, which killed dozens of civilians, while Abu Dhabi insists on denying these accusations.

Haftar forces have launched an attack since April 4 last, to control Tripoli, the seat of the legitimate government, which has aborted the efforts of the United Nations to hold a dialogue conference between the Libyans.
