They added "Libya is going through quarrels, alignments, and war on the homeland, in pursuit of militarizing the state under the name of fighting the Muslim Brotherhood and the war on terror."

The group also said that they have carried out revisions regarding the future of the organization since 2015 and stated “accordingly, the group decided to make a change in its existence that favors the higher interest of the country and the citizen. We, the sons of Zawiya, who belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood, have decided to resign from the organization and thus we consider the group’s branch in Zawiya dissolved from this date.”
