TRIPOLI, (BM) – At the moment, there is a large number of evidence that Turkey is interfering in Libyan affairs. Ankara is not only supplying weapons to the so-called Libyan National Accord Government (GNA), but it is also transferring Syrian mercenaries to the country. However, more and more information appears that mercenaries refuse to fight on the side of the GNA.

Previously, such information was provided by a Syrian mercenary, with whom the Federal News Agency was able to speak. He was recruited, assuring that he would not participate in the hostilities, but would simply guard Turkish bases.

There was no talk of any battles on the side of the GNA. Recruiters managed to convince in this way many mercenaries, in addition, they promised a large salary. In fact, everything turned out differently. The soldiers were ordered to fight against the Libyan National Army (LNA), but few agreed to this, the vast majority of mercenaries refused.

Money, as an eyewitness told the events, the mercenaries also did not see. Almost no one was paid, and if someone received a “salary”, then at times less than the agreed amount. The situation is actually out of control. The mercenaries refused to fight, after which the field commanders threatened them or openly shot between their legs.

Most of the mercenaries are people in a difficult financial situation, who believed in recruiters. But also among those whom Turkey has transferred to Libya, there are real killer fighters – members of the ISIS, Al-Qaida, Jebhat al-Nusra and other terrorist organizations..

News of their elimination or captivity often comes from Libya. So, the LNA managed to detain Muhammad ar-Buweidani, one of the most dangerous ISIS terrorists in Syria. Captured militants say that they were in Libya because of Turkey.

Anton Bredikhin, editor-in-chief of the Archon magazine, expressed his point of view regarding the actions of Ankara in Libya. He is sure that the refusal of the fighters to fight is not solidarity. The mercenaries were ready for battle, they knew where they were going. The question is the money, which is either not paid, or paid very little.

Bredikhin suggested that Turkey is unlikely to abandon the mercenaries in the near future, as it sees in them the strength and leverage over other countries. In fact, countries in the region should expect the return of the Ottoman Sultan, which is likely to escalate.

In addition, do not forget about the wave of revolutions in the region, which Ankara can use to expand its influence.
