GNA promised with the help of Turkey to take control over all of Libya
TRIPOLI, (BM) – Fayez al-Sirraj, the head of the Turkish-backed Government of National Accord, called for the “sacrifices” to proceed until the “criminal gangs and mercenaries” are defeated, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing AMN news agency.
The official Facebook page of the GNA, “Operation Volcano Anger”, said that Al-Sirraj’s statements came during a call to the head of the field operations room in the Sirte and Al-Jafra regions.
The call dealt with “the latest developments in the field of the conduct of military operations, and to determine the readiness of the forces to implement the tasks assigned to them.”
The Libyan media reported that Al-Sirraj’s statements represented a tacit rejection of the Cairo declaration launched by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi on Saturday to resolve the Libyan crisis and stop the shooting.
The government forces, backed by Turkey, had announced that they had tightened control of the town of Al-Washaka and had advanced it from 3 axes to Sirte city center.
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).
