Saif al-Islam Gaddafi says it's all good, he is with 'brothers' facing 'no problems'
Saif al-Islam in recent pictures taken in captivity in 'Zintan', to the north of Libya.
In a new video posted on Facebook on Sunday, Saif al-Islam Qaddafi said he was in Zintan among his “brothers” and his “people” and that he was facing “no problems.”
“We are here among our friends and we'll get medical treatment here in Zintan. We are here with our brothers and our people. There are no problems. We are consulting and talking and discussing, and we are talking about a lot of things,” Saif al-Islam said in the video posted on Facebook by the Zintan Media Centre
“After we left Bani Walid, we were hit by the NATO crusaders. 26 of our guys were martyred. The rest were all wounded,” Saif al-Islam said.
“I was hit too. It happened near Wadi Zamzam about a month ago. The injury I have is from a month ago when we were hit in Wadi ZamZam by the NATO crusader infidels.”
Saif al-Islam was captured near the southern town of Obari by NTC fighters from Zintan who brought him on an airplane to their town, where he was being held in an unknown location.
“We have agreed to receive medical treatment that we need here in Zintan,” Saif al-Islam said in the video. The Zintan Media Centre said Muammar Qaddafi’s eldest son gave the statements voluntarily.
“And the second thing, it was agreed that we come to Zintan for treatment where there is the medicine and anesthesia and the treatment we need,” he added.
