The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BERLIN – Dozens of people from Libyan, Syrian, Egyptian and Kurdish communities took to the streets in Berlin today to protest against Turkey’s military intervention in Libya.
The demonstration was held as world leaders and senior diplomats were taking part in an international peace summit for Libya in Berlin.
Diplomats are seeking a political agreement among Libyan rivals to end the 9-months long conflict in Tripoli between the Government of National Accord (GNA) and the Libyan National Army (LNA).
The protester held signs written in Arabic, English and German condemning the policies of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Libya.
In November, Erdogan signed a military agreement with GNA’s Fayez Al-Sarraj which later paved the way for deploying Turkish troops and Ankara-backed Syrian fighters to Tripoli.
