BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – The political official of the Libyan National Struggle Front and cousin of the former Libyan President, Ahmed Gaddaf Al-Dam, said on Thursday that Egypt has the right to defend itself, pointing out that many of the bombings that took place inside the country came from Libya.

In an interview with Sky News Arabia, Qaddaf Al-Dam stressed that the efforts of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to interfere in Libya will fail.”

“Egypt is subject to an organized war as an Arab country, and it has the right to defend itself when its red lines are crossed. As for us, our red lines are in Zuwara and Tobruk, and if the Turks extend to Libya, we are able to reach Istanbul, especially as we have allies in Turkey.”

Qaddaf Al-Dam considered that “Turkey was dragged into a trap in Libya,” saying: “Stupid policies that Erdogan signed, who thought he would be the caliph and that the Ottoman Empire would return through the gang that turned around Qatar, without realizing that they were carrying out a plan to destroy the Islamic world.”

He also considered that Ankara “is implementing a plan drawn up by the West,” saying: “The brothers in Turkey lost their minds and were lured to be drained financially, morally and militarily, and created internal problems there. I pity Turkey because Libya will return, as we have the will and strength, and we are a country that returns and recovers.”

“Our armed forces are returning and will join forces with each other in the east, west and south. They will not be able to resist our tribes, and there is no legitimacy in Libya except the legitimacy of the Libyan people.”

He added: “The West will not allow Turkey to exist militarily in the Mediterranean Sea, or to obtain Libya’s wealth, but Erdogan’s recklessness and encouragement of those around him made him believe that they would be victorious, but he might slip into this bump.”
