On June 5th, Turkish and Government of National Accord (GNA) targets at al-Watiya airbase were struck.

Reportedly, the LNA struck the targets.

The Director of the Moral Guidance Department in the Libyan National Army (LNA), Khaled Mahjoub said that as a result of the strikes, approximately 80% of the positions that were targeted were destroyed.

According to him, 9 locations were struck, and 80% of the targets therein were destroyed.

He also vowed that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s “military adventure in Libya” would fail.

 

Mahjoub also claimed that “important commanders” of the Turkish Army were also killed in the strikes.

The official version from the Turkish and GNA side is that “unknown warplanes” targeted al-Watiya, but there was no loss of life. The strikes reportedly targeted recently installed systems, such as an air defense system.

 

Following the airstrikes, the GNA said that it would respond at the “right place and at the right time.”

Satellites imagery purportedly show that 3 radar stations and a MIM-23 Hawk air defense system were destroyed.

There’s also a video allegedly showing some of the strikes.
