GMV military vehicles are missing in Libya, along with Glocks, M4 rifles, and other important military weapons belonging to the United States. Fox News reports that Muslim Brotherhood rebels raided hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terrorist organizations. The military GMV vehicles are capable of launching high powered grenades.
CNN video shows how several al-Qaeda training camps have been set up throughout Libya, three very near the Nigerian border. The U.S. abandoned its training camp for special operations in Libya; this camp has been overrun by al-Qaeda militia groups, who have also been able to steal U.S. Military weapons.
In 2011, al-Qaeda leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri dispatched a top lieutenant to build up al-Qaeda in Libya.
In an internet video released by al-Zawahiri in August, he accused the U.S. of overthrowing the former Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi,
Crusaders and secularists and the Americanised army have converged … with Gulf money and American plotting to topple Mohamed Morsi's government.
According to Fox News, within the Salifi Muslims in Libya, the "salafists" lead a jihadist movement targeting the western world and their influence.
Along with the GMVs, the Muslim Brotherhood rebels were able to steal U.S. military weapons that would offer al-Qaeda an advantage over their enemies. It is reported that approximately 100 Glock pistols, more than 100 M4 rifles, GPS technologies, and night vision goggles were among the stolen goods.
In August, the European Union ambassador was attacked, and there is concern that with more modern equipment, the rebel groups will attempt to overthrow the existing Libyan government.
