The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – The Libyan National Army’s Chief of Staff, Major-General, Faraj Mahdawi, said that the army now has the ability to destroy any ship up to 100 kilometres from the Libyan coast.
Mahdawi said in a TV statement that the Turkish naval units are the first target of LNA missiles, which “are known in the world fot their ability to sink any ship.”
Ankara established a military foothold in Libya after signing a security agreement with the Tripoli-based Government National Accord (GNA) last year. As part of the agreement, Turkish troops as well as Ankara-backed Syrian mercenaries were deployed to back GNA in an effort fight the Libyan National Army (LNA) in western Libya.
