On Saturday, Hifter appeared before journalists in his military uniform and promised he would press on with his Benghazi offensive, despite warnings from the central government. They labelled his moves a coup attempt.
He returned to Libya and briefly served as a commander of its fledging national army after Gadhafi's death. In February, he remerged in Libya via an online video in which he addressed the nation while wearing his military uniform and standing in front of the country's flag and a map, proclaiming he intended to "rescue" the nation. Later, rumours circulated he visited military bases in eastern Libya to rally support before launching his Benghazi offensive Friday.

Gen. Mokhtar Farnana, speaking on a Libyan television channel on behalf of Hifter's group, said it assigned a 60 member constituent's assembly to take over for parliament. Farnana said Libya's current government would act on as an emergency Cabinet, without elaborating.
"The government condemns the expression of political opinion through the use of armed force," Libyan Justice Minister Salah al Marghani said in a statement. "It calls for an immediate end of the use the military arsenal . and calls on all sides to resort to dialogue and reconciliation."
It's not clear which militias and political leaders support Hifter, but his offensive taps into a wider disenchantment among Libyans with its virtually powerless government.

The fighting spread to the capital's southern edge Sunday night and along the airport highway.
Those who attacked parliament and Farnana have ties to Zintan in Libya's west and are an anti Islamist powerhouse in Tripoli. Militias from Misrata, the other dominant force in Tripoli, largely support the Islamists.
Militias that backed the country's interim government manned checkpoints around the capital late Sunday. Hifter's forces in Tripoli appeared concentrated around the road to the city's airport and its southern outskirts. On Sunday, gunmen targeted the Islamist lawmakers and officials Hifter blames for allowing extremists to hold the country ransom, his spokesman Mohammed al Hegazi told Libyan television station al Ahrar.
Islamist backed parliamentary head Nouri Abu Sahmein earlier told Libyan television station al Nabaa that parliament would convene Tuesday.
Libya's army and police rely heavily on the country's myriad of militias, the heavily armed groups formed around ethnic identity, hometowns and religion that formed out of the rebel factions that toppled Gadhafi. Bringing them under control has been one of the greatest challenges for Libya's successive interim governments, one they largely failed at as militias have seized oil terminals and even kidnapped a former prime minister seemingly at will.

"This parliament is what supports these extremist Islamist entities," al Hegazi said. "The aim was to arrest these Islamist bodies who wear the cloak of politics."
Lawmakers said security officials tried evacuate them before attackers breached the parliament, following warnings the building would be assaulted.
Libya's parliament is divided between Islamist and non Islamist factions, with rival militias lining up behind them. Recently, Islamists backed the naming of a new prime minister amid walkouts from non Islamists, who said the new government would be illegitimate.
Early Monday morning, Libya's interim government condemned the attack on parliament and largely ignored the declaration by the general's group.
"We announce to the world that the country can't be a breeding ground or an incubator for terrorism," said Farnana, who wore a military uniform and sat in front of Libya's flag.

Hours earlier, militia members backed by truck mounted anti aircraft guns, mortars and rocket fire attacked parliament, sending lawmakers fleeing for their lives as gunmen ransacked the legislature.
In the fighting Sunday, officials believe members of the al Qaaqaa and Sawaaq militias, the largest in the capital, backed Hifter even though they operate under a government mandate. Al Qaaqaa posted a statement on its official Facebook page saying it attacked parliament with Sawaaq because lawmakers supported "terrorism."
