Ankara explained the presence of Turkish bombers on the border of the Libyan city of Misurat with military exercises. On April 17, the Turkish Air Force simulated an attack on Al-Vishka. It is reported by the Federal News Agency.

On Friday, Twitter users announced the threat of Libyan air strike by Turkish aircraft. In the social network, data appeared on three KC-135R tankers, an E-7T Peace Eagle 13-001 onboard and two transporters, the S-130 and A-400, near the Libyan border. Also, it soon became known about the attack by Turkey Al-Vishki.

The Turkish Ministry of Defense in an official Twitter account announced an imitation of an attack as part of military exercises in the Mediterranean Sea, guided by an agreement on the demarcation of borders.

It should be noted that Turkey violated international laws on borders, and the EU did not support the agreement with the Government of Libyan National Accord.

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).
