BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Libyan State Council issued a call to cut ties with Lebanon on Monday after members of Amal Movement burnt the Libyan national flag at the headquarters of the planned Arab Economic Summit in Beirut.

According to the Sputnik News Agency, the Libyan State Council issued the call to suspend ties with Lebanon on the grounds of “insulting the national flag of Libya.”

Condemning the Amal movement’s insult to the Libyan flag at the headquarters of the planned Arab socio-economic summit in Beirut, the Libyan council urged the Foreign Ministry to freeze diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The Amal Movement harbors animosity towards the Libyan government over the disappearance of Sayyed Mousa Al-Sadr, who was last seen in Tripoli, Libya in 1978.

The party’s leadership has blamed the Libyan government for the disappearance of Al-Sadr and even went as far as arresting Hannibal Gaddafi in 2015.

Libya is not an Arab state, this is Maghreb, native language is Tamazight.
As Syria, they were invaded by nefarious caliphates, they had civilisation while Arabs were still nomads in the desert.
Amal are in bed with Tehran and Hellbollah…
And they were fighting against PLO at the time of al-Sadr disappearance while Libya wasn’t implied in Lebanese civil war that was started by Arafat in 1975 when he tried to take over the country…

How funny: Amal is allied with Iran and the main provider of “special forces” who worked at destabilising Gaddafi’s regime were IRGC and far more than Qatari SOFs.

No surprise Amal is burning the Libyan flag : things didn’t turned the way their Tehran ‘friends’ wanted. Note : “On 11 December 2015, Hannibal was kidnapped and briefly held in Lebanon by an armed group demanding information about disappearance of Shiite Imam Musa al-Sadr but later was released in… Read more »
