The former political adviser to the leadership of the Libyan Karama Operation, Mohammed Boussir, has filed a complaint against the retired powerful General Khalifa Hafer, holding him responsible for recent threats against his life.

“I have received threats that I will be attacked with acid from people loyal to General Khalifa Haftar,” Boussir said on Wednesday on Facebook.

The former political adviser explained that he had filed a lawsuit against Haftar to American courts.

Since the overthrow of the longtime Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in a popular uprising in 2011, Libya has been involved in a power struggle which has led to security chaos. There are currently three governments in the country with Brigadier General Khalifa Haftar heading one in Benghazi, the UN-backed Government of National Accord in Tripoli headed by Prime Minister Fayez Al-Sarraj, and the Tobruk-based government of Abdullah Al-Thinni.
