Haftar's LNA Denies Providing Support to One Party in Sudan against the Other

Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, head of the Libyan National Army - (General Command)

Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) denied on Thursday providing support to one party in Sudan against the other.

"The General Command categorically denies reports of providing support to one party against the other," LNA spokesman Ahmad Mesmari said in a statement.

Mesmari added that the LNA is conducting urgent calls and is ready to play a mediating role between the parties in Sudan.

“From the perspective of the Arab and African national role of the General Command of the Armed Forces, we call for the formation of a joint mediation committee including the League of Arab States and the African Union to exert all endeavors for an immediate cease fire to reach calm and steer out of this crisis while preserving security and stability of Sudan,” Mesmari said.

Local and international media outlets claimed that Haftar had dispatched military support to one of the conflicting parties in Sudan.

A military source who spoke on condition of anonymity denied the claims.
