Cairo- On the recent terrorist list issued by Libya’s National Defense and Security Committee, there are five Libyans who have been on the terrorist radar since the revolution of 2011 in Libya. These five have all contributed to the ongoing chaos in Libya with and through Qatari support.
A brief bio on Ali Mohamed Mohamed Al-Salabi shows that he is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. He is in constant contact and is on good terms with the leaders of the Libyan Fighting Group (LFG). He was a mediator between the group and the Libyan state and played a major role in releasing members of the group from Libyan prisons.
He is Libyan, yet holds a Qatari nationality and has resided in Qatar for many years. The Muslim Scholars is a union that is funded by Qatar and Al-Salabi is a member of it.
He has been dubbed as, ‘The Man of Tamim in Libya. The mouthpiece of the Qatari rule, Al-Jazeerah news channel, publicized much about Al-Salabi and named him as the ‘godfather’ of the Libyan revolution, and stood by his ideologies and promoted his stance. He made several appearances on Al-Jazeera. He would promote his views as a sheikh at times, and at other times as a political or military analyst figure.
On Friday, June 9, 2017, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain included announced a terrorist list of 59 individuals and 12 entities, funded and supported by Doha through funds and arms. Some days later, the Libyan government created a new list that includes 75 individuals and nine entities, all linked to Qatar.
