International Business Times quotes Rafik Hariri Center Nonresident Senior Fellow Mohamed Eljarh on the threats posed by Libya’s extensive smuggling networks:
Speaking to IBTimes UK, Mohamed Eljarh, non-resident fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, said: “The smuggling is not confined to one person or one group. People cooperate in ways that you wouldn’t imagine in order to get the smuggling done.
“The smuggling networks are intertwined and their common ground is economic. It is all about making money. That’s what it is all about for these groups,” he added.
