Turkey Will Deem LNA Forces ‘Legitimate Targets’ if Attacks Against Its Interests Continue

The eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA) downed two Turkish unmanned aerial vehicles as they attempted to attack its al-Watiya military airbase in the southeastern part of Tripoli, Al Arabiya broadcaster reported on 8 May.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry has stated that Ankara will deem military commander Khalifa Haftar's forces "legitimate targets" if attacks against its interests and diplomatic missions continue.

"In Libya, illegal groups linked to Haftar have intensified attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure in recent days, especially in Tripoli. On 9 May alone, they launched more than 100 rockets and actively shelled residential areas in central Tripoli", the ministry said.
