Turkey Delivers Weapons To Libya Via Air And Sea, Despite Embargo, Prepares To Push Sirte

On June 11th and in the early hours of June 12th, relative calm remains around Libya’s Sirte.

The Libyan National Army (LNA) has it under its control and has only carried a few airstrikes on GNA convoys near Abu Qurayn.

French fighter jets were detected in the airspace above Libya, but France said that they weren’t theirs.

The Government of National Accord (GNA), however, continues sending troops towards the area, in preparation for a larger push on Sirte.

In order to support the GNA further, three Turkish military cargo planes, as well as a ship loaded with weaponry and equipment arrived in Misrata on June 11th.

Turkish warships in the Mediterranean prevented a Greek frigate from inspecting a suspicious ship traveling to Libya.

In a very apparent attempt to spread some propaganda, Turkish national news outlet Anadolu Agency reported that approximately 500,000 Libyans have been displaced and around 120,000 houses were damaged as a result of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s offensive on Tripoli.

Abdul-Bari Shinbaru, Libya’s undersecretary of the Ministry of Local government, said in a statement the number of displaced families is 85,000.

He also stated that almost half of Tripoli’s population, between 2.5 to 3 million, were under the fire and shelling of Haftar’s militia, especially in southern parts of the capital.

Additionally, an alleged mass grave was reportedly discovered by GNA and Turkish forces in Tarhuna, which was recently captured by the GNA.

Finally, an inscription saying “Glory to Ukraine” was discovered, and it is reportedly an attempted by Russian mercenaries from the mythical “Wagner PMC” to pretend as if they’re from Ukraine, but, of course, nobody’s buying it.
