LNA: Turkey Delivering Military Gear to Militias through Commercial Vessels


28/07/2020 – Libyan National Army (LNA) spokesman Ahmed al-Mismari accused on Monday Turkey of delivering military equipment through commercial vessels to militias loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA).

In televised remarks, he added that Turkey was using American-made tanks and the Hawk missile system on Libyan territories.

The first condition for reaching a ceasefire in Libya is Turkey’s complete withdrawal from the country, he added.

Moreover, Ankara is exploiting the current lull in fighting to bring in more mercenaries to the country, he continued.
