Libyan Parliament member Ali Tekbali revealed on Friday evening another kidnapping of a retired Libyan intelligence officer by American forces in the Wadi Kaam area, west of Zliten city.
Tekbali tweeted: “The retired intelligence brigadier general, Mohamed Awad, was kidnapped and placed on an American plane in Wadi Kaam.”
The Parliament Member continued: “It seems that the story is bigger than Lockerbie,” referring to the kidnapping of citizen Abu Agila Masud and extraditing to the United States for alleged involvement in the Lockerbie bombing case.
Tekbali confirmed that a website close to the US Army announced the success of an American special force in carrying out the landing operation west of the Libyan city of Zliten.
The deputy explained that the landing operation was carried out after midnight by the Special Missions Unit of the US Special Forces SEAL with two V-22 Osprey helicopters.
