Good Morning

We can still hear the echoes of the successful elections in Libya, which received great praise from various political and social circles. People were very surprised by the highly positive results, which were not expected by anyone. Expectations were that there would be conflicts, especially in the light of so many weapons still circulating, between the voters and the candidates, especially in the larger constituencies. But, this was a misconception, and the doubters were proved wrong! The Libyan nation has proved that they are sincere in their hopes for the country, demonstrating that they take their responsibility very seriously and behaving in an exemplary manner. In fact, Libya stunned a lot of politicians and analyzers; indeed the 7th of July was a highly significant event in the history of Modern Libya.

Pentagon considering s ending drones to Kenya

The Pentagon is seeking to send hand-launched drones to Kenya as part of a $40 million-plus military aid package designed to help four African countries fight Al-Qaeda and AlShabaab militants, notably in Somalia, the Wall Street Journal reported. Kenya would get eight “Raven” unmanned aerial systems - an unarmed drone that can be used to identify targets for strikes by ground forces or other aircraft. The Ravens for Kenya would be part of an

initial $41.4 million package that also would include trucks, communications gear and rifles for Burundi, Djibouti and Uganda, the newspaper said. The United States provided Ravens to Uganda last year, it added, citing officials and documents. The Defence Department and the State Department had no immediate comment. U.S. government-to-government arms transfers are

presided over by the State Department, subject to an often- lengthy congressional review process. The Raven is built by Monrovia, Californiaheadquartered Aero Vironment Inc. Weighing 4.2 pounds (1.9 kilograms) and with a wingspan of 4.5 feet (1.37 metres), it is described as capable of sending real-time colour or infrared imagery to ground controllers and to remote viewers day or night.

Chief of the Libyan Army calls for the release of 2 members of the Libya Shield Brigade the Chief of the Libyan Army called for the release of two members of the Libya Shield brigade, currently detained in a hospital in Bani Walid. A car carrying Omran Shaban and Mohammed Al-Ouyb and a journalist, came under attack having passed through the Bir Dufan checkpoint. The two members of the Libya Shield Brigade belonged to a force, in charge of settling the clashes in Mizdah. Requests for their release and transfer to Tripoli have, so far, fallen on deaf ears. The Chief of the Libyan Army stated that this incident represented an attack on the Libyan state and was a flagrant violation of the country’s laws.
