Units of the Libyan National Army, led by Marshal Khalifa Haftar, are rapidly moving to Tripoli, the capital of the country, which is controlled by the so-called Government of National Accord formed with the assistance of the West.
It is also worth noting that as early as Sunday, December 15, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan promised to intervene in the situation, speaking on the side of the national agreement formed after the Libyan coup. However, the first steps in this campaign were not successful.
So, according to al-Mesmari, the anti-aircraft defense forces of the LNA shot down the Turkish Air Force UAV, which carried out an air mission against Haftar’s troops.
As News Front previously reported, the Libyan crisis began in 2011. Then, during the armed coup, Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown, which entailed the creation of dual power in the country. So, in Tripoli, with the support of the West, the so-called Government of National Accord was formed, which refused to recognize the Libyan parliament in the city of Tobruk, who nominated General Haftar for the post of commander.
In April, Haftar launched an offensive on Tripoli with the goal of ending dual power in the country. In response, the Government of National Consent sent controlled gangs. None of the parties succeeded, but they could not be seated at the negotiating table.Lesbos migrant camp children say “they want to die”
