BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – The Syrian militants fighting on behalf of the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Libya have violated the new ceasefire after attacking the Libyan National Army (LNA) inside Tripoli.

According to reports, the Turkish-backed Syrian militants attacked the Libyan National Army troops in the ‘Ayn Zara neighborhood of Tripoli, which is where the front-lines are currently located inside the city of Tripoli.

The Syrian militants, which fought in different factions of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), have been fighting alongside the Government of National Accord for nearly a month now.

Bloomberg News broke a story last month that revealed Syrian militants were being offered by the Turkish government a monthly stipend to fight alongside the GNA in Libya.

Since then, several videos were released from Libya on social media, showing these militants participating in battles against the LNA.

Such peaceful folks following peaceful religion and carrying out peaceful activities in Syria & Libya. Moslems killing Moslems in 1000s and then blame the rest of the world and say Islamophobia.

The world consider them as Moslems, they call themselfs as Moslems, BUT they are actually Wahabis – a distorted/corrupted version of Islam. Millions of Muslims do not consider Whabis as Real Muslims.

Sin duda Erdogan quiere complacer a los Europeos, la doble careta de la hipocresía del gobierno Turco.
