Ankara Warns of ‘Serious Consequences’ After Haftar’s Air Force Reveals Plan to Strike Turkish Units

Turkey began sending troops to Libya in January to shore up the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA). Before that, Ankara provided the GNA with military equipment to assist Tripoli in its ongoing campaign against the Tobruk-based government and the Libyan National Army (LNA) of Gen. Khalifa Haftar.

Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy has warned that there would be serious consequences for Gen. Haftar's forces if the Libyan National Army attacked Turkish troops operating in Libya.

"We emphasize once again that in the case of striking our interest in Libya – doing so would lead to serious consequences, and we will consider Haftar’s forces a legitimate target for attack,” Aksoy said, speaking to reporters on Thursday.
Aksoy's comments came in the wake of remarks by Libyan National Army Air Force commander Saqr al-Jaroushi earlier in the day warning that “the largest aerial campaign in Libyan history” would be launched "in the coming hours" targeting Turkish forces.

“All Turkish targets in occupied areas of Libya are legitimate targets for the LNA’s fighter planes. We assure our people that we will defend them with all means available to us until we kill the enemy or perish on our own land,” al-Jaroushi was quoted as saying, adding that civilians are urged to stay away from these sites.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since any possibility of "peaceful self-determination" was forcibly removed from the Libyan people by the Obama Administration, and its "cackling cauldron of death", Hillary Rodham Clinton, courtesy of its invasion of Libya, and the assassination of Moamar Ghadaffi, is it any wonder that the country has been in a perpetual state of civil war since this happened, almost 9 years ago in October 2011?!?

And has anyone dared to mention to Turkish warmeister-in-chief, President Edrogan, that Turkish troops in Libya are violating Libya's sovereignty, big-time, simply by their presence here?!?

This is all about who has access to Libyan oil, and the money in which it will be sold, period, end of discussion.
