“They have come from all over Libya and have united in their efforts to rid the country of evil.
“They are together as one in their endeavours. Andtheir staunch bravery on the front lines will bring unity to our country.
“They are patriots. They are heroes. They are the real people of Libya.
“And during this holy month we owe it to the memory of the brave Libyans who have fought for freedom and paid the ultimate price withtheir lives that we never forget the sacrifices they have made.”
