GNA and Turkey train ISIS and Al-Qaeda militants in Sabratha camp, Libya
TRIPOLI, (BM) – The Government of National Accord (GNA) of Libya supported by Turkish forces trains militants of armed groups, in particular from ISIS, Al-Qaida and Jebhat-en-Nusra in a special camp in the city of Sabratha, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing local Libyan sources.
Libyan residents said that on the territory of Sabratha there was a GNA camp, which includes more than five hundred dangerous criminals and terrorists, the FAN reports. Thus, in the village the threat to the security of citizens has increased several times.
About a month ago, Libyan GNA troops led by Fayez Sarraj seized the territories western from Tripoli. Citizens of a number of cities continue to complain about the behavior of the radicals, noting that they have to deal with civilian killings, tortures and robberies almost daily.
The head of the “Ministry of Internal Affairs” GNA, Fathi Bashag, in response to previous fears of local Libyans, assured that there is no threat. However, shortly after the capture in the settlements, mass executions were carried out. Libyan GNA militants killed those who did not agree with the regime of Tripoli.
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 Sarraj, 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).
