In what appears as a rift between Khalifa Haftar and his Madkhali backers, the Prime Minister of the Interim Government in eastern Libya Abdullah Al-Thinni has sacked the Head of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Authority Abdolmawla Al-Hasnouni - a man linked to Saudi Salafist-Madkhali sect - and replaced him with Abdelmatloub Erhouma. Salafist-Madkhalis are supporters of Khalifa Haftar and have fought for him in Benghazi and Derna and are fighting now in Tripoli. Some Madkhalis said this decision is unjust and is a kind of backstabbing them after all what they did for Haftar in the east. "The Salafist card has started to be burnt after Haftar has used well in his wars. Today Salafists lost their job in the eastern Awqaf authority with a Sufi replacement."
