Member of the Joint Military Committee 5 + 5 (JMC) Major General Al-Fituri Greibel has revealed that the Action Plan concerning the removal of mercenaries from Libya is to take place in two stages.

Greibel explained in a press statement that the first phase includes the removal of the Russian Wagner group, the Sudanese Janjaweed, and Syrians on the front lines.

The second phase targets foreign forces from Russia, Turkey, and other Arab and European countries.

However, he did confirm that no target implementation date has been set for any stage, hoping that the first phase would begin before the elections.

According to Greibel, the plan will be implemented amidst tight security measures to ensure that any of these forces do not infiltrate neighboring countries during the deportation process, with fears that they may contribute to fueling conflicts in nearby countries or end up returning back to Libya.

The deportation process will not be easy, Greibel admits, explaining that they will commence with small numbers, perhaps one or two hundred from each side every week.

He talked about concerns of "detonating the operation" given each party's fear of the withdrawal of loyal elements, indicating that international support, especially from the United States or Britain, would be enough to face the parties that refuse or obstruct its implementation.
