According to a source of 300 terrorists from the Firkat As-Sultan Murad, Liva Sukur Al-Shimal and Feylak Al-Sham groups arrived in Libya to fight the forces of the Libyan National Army under the leadership of Khalifa Haftar.

BulgarianMilitary.com recalls that on April 5, the LNA spokesman said that Turkey sent Kurdish prisoners to Libya.

The LNA’s report also notes that “Turkey, under a fraudulent pretext, sends Kurdish prisoners to Libya to perform security work.” The LNA also claims that “in return, Turkey promises them an amnesty for the Kurds – involving them in the fight against our armed forces.”

Libyan civil war

In Libya, armed clashes are currently taking place between supporters of different leaders. The country is led by the Government of National Accord (GNA), headed by Prime Minister Fayez Saraj, the “eastern government” led by Abdullah Abdurrahaman at-Thani.

The eastern government is supported by the commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar.

Recall that January 13 in Moscow, negotiations were held between the heads of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalif Haftar and the Government of National Accord (GNA) Faiz Sarraj. Also present were members of the Foreign Ministries of Russia and Turkey.

On the meeting the commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, has notified Russia about the conditions for continuing negotiations on the signing of a peace agreement in Libya.

According to the requirements of Haftar, the militias operating in Libya are required to surrender weapons in the period from 45 to 90 days. This process should be controlled by a special commission created by the LNA together with the UN

Haftar also refused to recognize Turkey as an intermediary in resolving the situation in Libya, since the Turkish side is not neutral and supports the Government of National Accord (GNA).
