Libyan Army troops commanded by General Khalifa Haftar, based in Benghazi, overran an Islamic State base in the southern outskirts of the city on February 27 and say they found evidence that ISIS had stored the dead bodies of Libyan soldiers in refrigerators.

The base was located on a farm called Mazraat Abu Bakr Youness, named after a high ranking Libyan officer who had formerly owned the property.

The troops say that ISIS used the farm as a prison and had built cells to hold its prisoners. They found overturned refrigerators with what appeared to be bloodstains inside. An officer said the refrigerators were used to store bodies but the bodies were removed before ISIS fighters fled the base.
Arabic writing on one refrigerator said “Do not touch… Whoever who touches this refrigerator will not be forgiven"

Hannibal Kadhafi Files
Tripoli, Libya
By mchreyteh
17 Dec 2015

In August 2011, a group of militiamen, who were fighting against the Libyan president Mummer Kadhafi, entered the house of Kadhafi’s youngest son, Hannibal, in Tripoli, and found a tablet device which they believe was his personal device.

The device was turned over to a group of media activists in Tripoli, who examined the content. On the device they found thousands of photos and videos, including personal and family images. In a folder titled “Bosleem” there were videos that appeared to show prisoners being tortured during questioning, and photos of what are believed to be prisoners including their names, some appearing to be injured. The content also included Word documents and power point presentations some of which are encrypted.

The media activists have posted on social media a number of photos of Hannibal Kadhadi and his family, and several videos of prisoners being tortured. The activists group says one of its members was kidnapped and his fate remains unknown. Since then they have felt that they are in danger and have had to change locations frequently. They decided to move the content of the device outside of Libya. They contacted Lebanese journalist Mohamad Chreyteh, and one the the activists travelled to Lebanon in 2014 and gave the journalist the content.

Mr. Chreyteh says he has been working on organizing and verifying the content over the last year. He says he decided to make some of the content public on Sunday December 13, 2015, after hearing news that Hannibal Kadhafi is being held in detention. Kadhafi was turned over to Lebanese Internal Security official by gunmen who had seized him in Baalbek on Thursday December 10. Kadhafi is under investigation and official are trying to determine if he can be put on trial in Lebanon, in connection with the disappearance in Libya of Lebanese Shiaa spiritual leader and founder of the Amal Party, Moussa al-Sadr, in 1978.

The content includes many items that have not yet been made public:

  • More than 700 photos and videos, of Hannibal Kadhafi, his wife, children, homes, yacht, private jet and international travels.
  • More than 1700 photos and names of who are believed to be detainees held at Bosleem prison in Tripoli.
  • More than 50 video clips showing what appears to be the interrogation and torture of prisoners.
  • More than 35 documents including letters from investigators in Kadhafi’s security forces to senior officials, lists with names of wanted people, lists with names of detainees, lists with names of people recommended to be set free, notes detailing prisoner interrogations, letter from a senior military police official to a senior judge.

Soldiers snake between deserted and damaged civilian houses, searching for Islamist militants.

Fighting between Islamist militias and forces loyal to Lt. General Khalifa Haftar has ravaged the Libyan city of Benghazi, even though fighting has diminished. Reports indicate that Haftar's forces currently have the upper hand over the Islamist Libya Dawn military coalition. According to a Transterra Media contributor, significant casualties have put the local hospital under pressure to provide adequate medial care as supplies are thinning out.

Scores of Libyans staged an anti-terrorism demonstration in al-Keesh Square Benghazi on Friday, February 20, 2015.

The demonstrators called for the backing of the Libyan army and for the international community to support the Tobruk based government's demand at the UN Security Council to lift the ban on arms sales, and to provide the army with the necessary support to fight terrorism.

The demonstrations came following a triple suicide bomb attack in the eastern town of al-Qubbah, which claimed more than 40 lives.

The attacks were claimed by the 'Islamic State' in retaliation, they said, for the air strikes carried out on the IS stronghold of Derna earlier this week.

In downtown Benghazi, normal daily life is gradually disappearing. For the past 15 days, streets have been empty and shops closed as fighting between Islamist militias and forces loyal to former General Khalifa Haftar escalates.
Haftar’s forces continue to advance on positions held by the Benghazi Revolutionaries Shura Council and have resorted to warplane attacks in their bid to control Libya’s second largest city. Mortar shell explosions can be heard in all parts of Benghazi. Violent clashes are still ongoing in Benghazi’s east and near the local university. The university’s administration building was also burned during the exchange of fire.
Government institutions have been closed and most of the roads were blocked. Most of this footage was taken at the rush hour in areas that would normally be crowded with cars and pedestrians, such as Jamal Abdul Nasser, Tipesti, and July 23rd streets. However, after the recent events, travel in these streets became almost impossible. Residents are likely to suffer an economic recession as activity in Benghazi continues to be paralyzed.

Libyans are voting in the country's second parliamentary elections since the fall of the Muammar Ghadaffi in 2011.

More than 1,600 candidates are competing in these elections, 131 of whom are women.

Interviews:

Ibrahim, Voter:
“Thank God, this is the first time we feel real democracy for the election and the polling stations. May God send peace to our country and people”.

Abu Anas, Voter:
“Until now there is no huge crowd but I expect it to increase with time. We wish for good things in this country, some people are hesitant and they do not want to vote due to the general situation. They [the government] did not give the people a time period, it was only a month, so people did not have time to think and decide and ask about the candidates”.

Aisha, Voter:
“May God protect our country and the election go the right way. [May we] vote for the best person, who will be loyal and able to manage this country”.

Mustafa, Voter: “In this election we pray to God to help the new parliament members and to not run the country the same way the former parliament members did. I hope they keep in mind the faith the population has in them. For the current parliament members, their goal must be Libya only”.
