The Karama Operations Room of the Libyan National Army said that the Turkish warplanes carried out raids on several civilian targets in Gharyan city.

The Libyan National Army confirmed that militia aircraft bombed residential neighborhoods in Buglan district in the western city of Gharyan. The Karama Operations Room said that the Turkish planes, which were taking off from the Misurata base, carried out raids on several civilian targets far from the military areas of Gharyan city.

A military source told Al-Bayan newspaper that a group of militia had withdrawn from the axis, adding that there were almost certain reports that Osama al-Juwaili, the Western Region commander of the Al-Wefaq government, had agreed to withdraw from the hubs and return to Zintan provided he was not pursued.

While the army is engaged in a fierce battle against the militia in the axis of Ain Zara south of Tripoli.

The Libyan authorities have already thwarted the entry of Turkish arms and explosives into Libya via the ports of Misurata and Khomeis. Turkey has repeatedly violated the UN Security Council resolution banning the sale and transfer of arms to Libya.

Since the start of the so-called Arab Spring, Turkey under the leadership of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has been supporting terrorist groups in various Arab countries. Turkey has provided support to Daesh and now supports Jabhat al-Nusra, which is on the international terrorism list.
