Libyan Army Destroys Turkish Weapon Shipment To GNA Forces

Donate

The Libyan National Army (LNA) announced on December 13 that it had destroyed a large shipment of weapons, that was recently supplied by Turkey to forces loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA) in the Libyan coastal city of Misrata.

In an official statement, the army revealed that it received credible information saying that large quantities of weapons, ammunitions, armored vehicles and other military equipment were shipped to Misrata’s naval and aerial ports.

Turkey supplied these weapons and equipment to Misrata’s forces as a part of its recent maritime agreement with the GNA, according to the LNA.

The weapons shipments as well as Turkish-made drones, which were stored in Misrata’s Air Academy and other parts of the city, were targeted by the Libyan Air Force (LAF).

“The shipments’ storage areas were targeted and destroyed with high accuracy and success, as a result of the strikes, successive explosions occurred and a fire erupted in the Turkish drones’ hangar… Our warplanes safely returned to their bases,” the LNA’s statement reads.

Misrata’s forces, which are among the largest, most capable forces supporting the GNA, have not commented on the LNA’s claims, so far.

The LNA’s Commander-in-Chief Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar announced a day ago the launch of a “decisive battle” to capture the capital, Tripoli. A step that was apparently motivated by the GNA’s maritime agreement with Turkey.
