Turkish military in Libya came under fire by the Haftar’s forces
TRIPOLI, (BM) – The Libyan National Army (LNA), under the command of Marshal Khalifa Haftar, announced that its planes had struck a weapons and ammunition depot in the Abugrain region east of the coastal city of Misurata in the north-west of the country, learned Bulgarian Military.com citing EurAsia Daily.
Turkish officers liquidated as a result of the air raid, an LNA spokesman said on condition of anonymity and without indicating the number of deaths, the Pan-Arab newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat writes April 7.
According to al-Mismari, the troops of Marshal Haftar are determined to put an end to the Turkish invasion of Libya, as well as to eliminate the “terrorist militias that are loyal to the PNS.” He added that Saraj’s formations are “completely dependent” on Turkish drones, and the LNA forces are now “on the outskirts of Tripoli’s heart”.
Last Friday, April 3, LNA units destroyed 25 enemy armored vehicles, al-Mismari noted.
As EADaily reported, Turkey sent militants from Libya al-Mutasim Division, Sultan Murad Brigades, Sukur al-Shamal and other groups operating in northwestern Syria to Libya. According to commentators, Ankara’s ceasefire regime, established in Syrian Idlib, which supports PNS Faiz Saraj, is trying to use additional forces from Syria to Libya.
In addition to the “Syrian armed opposition” mercenaries and large arms lots (ACV-15 infantry fighting vehicles, 35-mm anti-aircraft mounts, T-155 Firtina howitzers, etc.), Turkey previously deployed a certain number of “military advisers” to Tripoli to protect PNS from the troops of Marshal Haftar.
