The Libyan national army destroyed the Turkish drone. In addition, two Turkish citizens were arrested, the LNA reported.
The LNA stated that Turkish military specialists who work with UAVs are cooperating with the government of national consent in Tripoli.
The UAV was destroyed when it “was ready to fly for the bombing positions of the Libyan army.”
In addition, the LNA reported that “two Turks were arrested because Ankara supported the illegal armed formations.” The arrested “supported the paramilitary units.”
The Turkish Foreign Ministry announced the detention of six Turkish citizens. Ankara warned that if Haftar’s forces did not release the Turkish citizens, the LNA would “become a legitimate target” for the strike.
Recall, the Libyan National Army under the command of Field Marshal KhalifaHaftar closed the sky of Libya to civilian aircraft from Turkey.
