The Guardian Newspaper revealed that a ring leader of
al-Maskhou was attacked on Friday and eight other men in Tripoli’ suburbs of Furnaj
by a strong hit squad and killed. The leader was reported to be killed but
relatives announced him to be still alive.
At long last the government is looking behind the scenes of
the refugee and migrants’ crisis. There is no doubt that there are some desperate
refugees but there is also a great number sent by organised smugglers for whom
it is a great business and this site has to be stopped.
Maskhou is from Zuwara, a port in north-west Libya and is a
major place for smuggling hundreds of thousands of refugee and migrants. There are reports that several men were
killed and bullets recovered by a pathologist are Hydra-shok and only available
Italy’s defence minister denied involvement
NATO officers also stated that there were military alliances
So far smuggling gangs were operating across Libya but since
Libya DAWN put up checkpoints across the city and jeep patrolling the streets
it curbed their activities to some extent.
It was only a day before the murders, when EU Foreign police
chief, Frederica Mogherini, said: “Operations
against people smugglers will begin on 7 October, 2015.
A British warship will be involved in the aggressive naval
Suspecting a smuggling gang behind this hundreds of thousands
refugees and migrants started a gathering of intelligence by EU naval and air,
drones since June. They also interfere
with email and mobile post to find out the real smuggling gangs and their
Only last week EU navy recovered again 4,700 people off
Zuwara. Huge amount of money are being made off the back of desperate people
and breeds new powerful gangsters. They have even their own militia
A huge protest erupted in Zuwara against smugglers after
dozens of bodies were washed up on the beach but the trade still continues.
Since the US and the West brought down the government on
Libya; they also brought down law and order.
There are now two governments in Libya. Only the government in
the east of the country has been recognised and stated that it has n control
over Libya DAWN militia in Tripoli.
UN refugee agency (UNHCR) reported it is estimated that
129,000 people arrive in Italy from Libya this year and most of them come from
These people smugglers should have been stopped years ago or
even over a decade. This influx of people should be grouped into two. One is
refugees who are desperate people and need help and the other group migrants who
are well fed and mostly men. They had been swarmed the EU for years and they do
not look desperate but very determined mostly to reach the UK.
In Calais there are approx. 3,000 camping at any time trying
by any means to get to the UK. Long-distance lorry drivers are scared for their
lives because they threatened them with knives and guns. In the camp at night
fights are breaking out regularly. According to the lorry drivers they all have
knives and guns. It does not sound a refugee who is desperate.
The pictures we saw of the two little boys washed up in the Italian
beach broke everybody’s heart. The Father said that he is so upset that he will
not stay in Europe and go back to Syria straight away. Only a few days’ later reports came through
that he was a smuggler.
Another report from a survivor on a Greek Island where the
boat sunk off the coast and many people drowned stated that the boat’s
owner put a hole in it himself. It is not known whether he survived.
Other reports revealed that the smugglers threw people over
board at high sea because they feared the boat will sink.
There are no doubts, ruthless smugglers’ gangs operate and
the refugees are at their mercies.
