Between assertion, denial and skepticism, the debate continues in Libya over the attempt to assassinate the Minister of Interior in the Tripoli government, Fathi Bashagha. While Bashagha said that a car began to attack his convoy, and that people opened fire from inside, which led to an exchange of fire in which one of his bodyguards and one of the attackers were killed, the forensic report in Tripoli revealed that Ramadan Al-Hanqari, accused of leading the attack on the minister’s motorcade, died of Fractures and internal bleeding resulting from a traffic accident, and that his body was completely clear of any bullets or shrapnel, in contrast to Bashagha’s statement, who said that he was killed during a clash during the assassination attempt.
The circle of skepticism about the incident expanded, given that Bashagha’s convoy consisted of more than 50 armored cars, the largest of its kind in Libya, and the country had no similarity even during Gaddafi’s era, while the opposite party was traveling in one car that was unable to penetrate the convoy. The military analyst, Muhammad al-Tarhouni, considered that the assassination attempt was nothing but a whirlwind aimed at re-marketing Bashagha, who is trying to destabilize security and assure that he is the only one capable of solving it in order to be in the new elected executive authority and continue to remain a minister in the next government. Al-Tarhouni indicated that this attempt will not be the last and there will be other operations from Bashagha.
In turn, the head of the Silvium Research Foundation, Jamal Shalouf, confirmed that what was rumored about the details of the alleged assassination attempt against which he was subjected to vague paradoxes that cannot be accepted by logic, the most important of which is an assassination attempt by firing bullets from one car at a column of 50 armored cars that are not pierced by bullets. His saying.
While the new President of the Presidential Council, Muhammad Al-Manfi, and the head of the Unity Government, Abdul Hamid Al-Dabaiba, urgently called on the judicial and police authorities to open a fair and transparent investigation into the circumstances of the incident and prosecute the perpetrators, and to emphasize that all those involved would not escape punishment, it was noted that the parties supporting Bashagha at home and abroad quickly approved The version of the Ministry of the Interior, without waiting for the results of the investigation.
Informed sources in Tripoli believe that Bashagha’s goal in promoting the attempt to assassinate him is to present himself to assume the position of Minister of Interior in the National Unity Government, and to fight his postponed war against the militias outside the orbit of the Brotherhood that support him, which he previously announced last month and called it « Snake hunting ».
