According to information procured by Skynews Arbiya , the father of the terrorist is Ramadan Bul Qasim Al Abedi, member of the combating Libyan Group, led by Abdul Hakim Belhaj, who is connected with the Muslim Brotherhood Al Salabi, and who is living in Qatar. Belhaj is one of the Al Qaeda Organization elements, who claimed the British Intelligence had kidnapped him, and later released him before he filed a it against it in which he demanded millions Sterling Pounds in compensation.
Moreover, the father of the suicide bomber politically belongs to " Al Umma Party", an affiliate of Sami Al Saadi, who is codenamed " Abu Al Monzir", who is also one of the leaders of the Libyan Al Qaeda, an offshoot of Al Qaeda Organisation. The organization played important role in spreading chaos and violence in Libya, particularly in the czapital Tripoli.
The same information pointed out that Ramadan Bul Qasim Al Abedi is regarded as close friend of Sohail Al Sadiq AL Giriani, son of the Ousted Libyan Mufti, who issued edicts calling for fighting the Libyan army, and incites terrorism and violence.
