The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – Turkey is sneaking Syrian militants in migrant boats to Europe in coordination with human traffickers in Tripoli, Chief media official at the Libyan National Army (LNA), General Brigadier Khaled Al-Mahjoub, told The Libyan Address Journal.
The LNA official confirmed that Turkey, who reportedly deployed more than 2,000 Syrian fighter to Tripoli, has began sending those fighters along with African migrants to Europe.
Al-Mahjoub affirmed that recent remarks by Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan falls in line with the intelligence LNA has gathered.
In an article published in Politico on Saturday, Erdogan has warned Europe it could face new threats from terrorist organizations if the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord led by Fayez al-Sarraj were to fall.
These threats reflect the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood in which Erdogan is considered to be its General-Secretary,” Al-Mahjoub said in an exclusive statement to The Libyan Address Journal.
“According to LNA’s intelligence sources, the first round of Syrian militants, including 10 ISIS elements, have already arrive in Europe with African migrants,” he said.
“This is a danger to Europe’s security which must compels it to support the Libyan National Army to secure and stabilize the country, especially in Tripoli where human trafficking is active under the rule of ISIS terrorists and militias commanders”.
In April, LNA launched a military operation to fight against militias and terrorist groups, which have been the main cause of chaos in the capital since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. In response, GNA forged an alliance with these militias, claiming that LNA wants to overthrow Prime Minister Al-Sarraj.
