He continued, "The enemy is trying from that period to re-gather its forces to attack the city of Sirte, because Erdogan and all Turkish politicians are talking about the oil crescent area, and therefore he wants to continue military operations until he controls the entire oil crescent area, and then he goes to negotiate and put The world is facing a fait accompli. "
"There is no such thing as Accord forces or Accord army at all," the Libyan national army spokesman said, stressing that it is "a group of militias and criminals, who never want to have a state of law or a state of institutions, and there are Syrian mercenaries and the Turkish army."
