Ankara will legitimize intervention in Libya – Turkish troops will join the militants of the Government of National Accord in the new year

The Turkish armed forces will be able to legally join the gangs that support the so-called Libyan National Accord Government, after the parliament provides the appropriate mandate. This was reported by Anadolu News Agency.

Thus, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will send a bill to the Parliament that will legitimize the intervention in Libya. Voting on this issue will take place in January next year.

“When winter session of the Turkish parliament begins, the priority issue on the agenda will be the bill on the government’s mandate to send armed troops to Libya”, – Erdogan said, noting that Ankara intends to provide any support to the Government of the national accord formed in Libya after the coup.

As News Front previously reported, the Libyan National Army, Marshal Khalifa Haftar, resumed the offensive on Tripoli and even managed to gain a foothold on the approaches to the central part of the capital in areas where PNS fighters fled.

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.
