Forces of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) and Syrian militant groups that receive a direct support from Turkey are imposing own order in areas, which they captured from the Libyan National Army (LNA).

For example, on June 15, a video appeared online showing how GNA fighters raped an unidentified person with an assault rifle.

Earlier, mutliple reports surfaced online that Turkish-backed forces were killing and torturing Egyptian workers that they were captured near Misrata and Tripoli.

Meanwhile, the Turkish state propaganda continues claiming that Ankara is bringing ‘the law and order’ to Libya by supporting the UN-backed GNA. This is how the videos above show how this ‘law and order’ looks like on the ground. The similar situation is now developing in Syria’s Idlib, where Turkey is de-facto defending al-Qaeda-linked groups.

On June 16, Al Arabiya reported that the Egyptian Parliament authorized the coutnry’s President El-Sisi to take necessary measures to deal with the situation in Libya and the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.

The prosecution and torturing of Egyptian citizens by Turkish-backed forces could become another factor that would motivate the Egyptian leadership to make a direct action to protect own interests in Libya.
