New photos have revealed additional information about the recent Turkish arms shipment to the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA).

One of the photos shows that shipment, which was delivered on May 18, included several BMC Vuran 4×4 mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles, beside more than 20 BMC Kirpi vehicles.

Another photo confirmed that all the delivered vehicles were equipped with ASELSAN’s Stabilized Advanced Remote Weapon Platform (SARP). The variant installed in the vehicles appears to be armed with a M2 Browning .50 heavy machine gun.

The weapons were shipped from the Turkish port Samsun to Libya’s capital, Tripoli, aboard a Moldavia-flagged ship named “AMAZON.” Several sources confirmed that the ship is being managed by a Turkish company.

Several Libyan sources claimed that the ship also transported man-portable air-defense system (MANPADs), anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) and Bulgarian-made light arms. However, these claims have not been confirmed yet.

The delivery of these armored vehicles to pro-GNA forces is a violation of the U.N. Security Council (UNSC) arms embargo on Libya, which was imposed in February of 2011.

    They need the Libyan oil as Turkey has none of it and it has sizable economy to support. Not that the Turks really care for the ordinary Libyan citizens; this war is mostly for oil and gas; to a certain extent is war also about securing the maritime borders with the aim of preventing the Africans to move unencumbered to Europe for population replacement purposes.
