Tunis, 26 May 2017:
In a surprise move, Egypt’s airstrikes on Derna, supposedly in retaliation for the massacre of Coptic Christians, have been condemned by Prince Idris Abdullah Abed Al-Senussi.
So far no one has spoken out against the bombings.
“The decision by the Egyptian leadership to violate Libyan territory is a source of major concern and is unacceptable,” he said in a statement.
Libyans would continue to respect and work to consolidate the historic relationship with their Egyptian neighbours and they wanted to cooperate with it in all fields, including combating terrorism and extremism. But strikes on military or civilian targets by neighbouring states or the international community were a violation of Libyan sovereignty, he declared.
He also called on militias in Tripoli to stop fighting during the holy month of Ramadan.
