British Ambassador to the UN, Sir Mark Lyall Grant stated during an interview with the Al-Arabiya television channel that Libya would only be supplied with weapons to fight IS if it agreed to a national unity government first. Lyall Grant also reportedly stated that the Misratans were the only force who were fighting IS and that Haftar wasn’t managing to take Benghazi. These comments only served to fuel further suspicions that the West wants to impose its own formula on Libya and that this formula entails empowering the Islamists at the expense of the HoR camp.
