BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Benghazi-based Libyan National Army (LNA) issued a stern warning to Ankara on Friday, threatening to sink any Turkish ships that enter Libya’s territorial water.

The spokesman for the Libyan National Army, Major General Ahmad al-Mesmari, said that orders were issued to the army to target Turkish ships in the Libyan territorial waters.

“The Libyan Army has been ordered to ban flights from any Libyan airport to Turkey,” he said. “Any point on the ground that deals with Turkey will be targeted.”

He added that the Turkish targets in Libya are hostile targets.

Al-Mismari said in a press conference held on Friday evening that the Libyan National Army is countering the attempt by the Tripoli militias to move towards the area of ​​Al-Sabia.

The spokesman said the army would storm the town of Gharian to destroy its militia capabilities.

“There is a Turkish-Qatari intervention in favor of the militias in Tripoli,” Mismari said, adding “there is direct Turkish interference in the battle of Tripoli from the sea, air, and land.”

He explained that Turkey provided an air cover by a marching aircraft during the militia storming the city of Gharian.

“We will drop the project of the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya,” he added.

For the one who thumbdowned : Muslim Brotherhood offshoots are AKP, Hamas, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra/HTS, Talibans, Sheebabs, Ansar-Dine, MUJAO, etc etc etc. I take this as a badge of honour to pi$$ off their fanboys. As Hadith 271 of Sahih Muslim Book 1 says : you shall recede between Mecca and Medina like a serpent crawls back into its hole.

The Muslim Brotherhood are the same creeps wrecking Havoc in Syria, as the devil, they’re known by many names : al-Qaeda, AKP, HTS, al-Nusra, etc. Their 1st victims are and have always been other Muslims, so let us laugh… When it goes for the future of Islam, your prophet prophetised this : “It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede… Read more »
