The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BENGHAZI – Turkey is blackmailing the European Union by exploiting the migration crisis in the Mediterranean to send terrorists among the migrants crossing the sea, the spokesman of the Libyan National Army (LNA) General Brigadier Ahmed Al-Mesmari said on Monday.

Speaking during his weekly press conference, Al-Mesmari pointed out that the number of illegal migrants crossing to Europe increased in Sabrata, Western Tripoli and other areas that were seized by armed groups of the Turkey-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), following LNA’s withdrawal.

“We have an enormous archive of documented crimes and abuses committed by militias,” Al-Mesmari said, adding that LNA forces will continue to carry out “their duties in fighting terrorism and combating crime”.
