This is illegal and if we remain silent, I think we will end up living in a jungle," Kaim said the international press. In this regard he argued that the rebels "are not a legal entity, not a country" as a territory can only be divided by a referendum or a United Nations resolution, which in the case of Libya does not have occurred.
