LNA Clashes with Mercenaries in Sebha


On Tuesday, the Director of Moral Guidance of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Major General Khaled Al-Mahjoub, stated that the LNA launched “powerful strikes” on mercenaries in Sebha, southwestern Libya.

Al-Mahjoub said in remarks to Sky News Arabic that the LNA is working to secure the areas of southern Libya, given that “there are attempts to move mercenaries in the southern Libyan region.”

“Turkey has interests in the continuation of instability in Libya,” he added.

Spokesman for the LNA’s General Command, Major General Ahmed Al-Mismari, said that the Sebha military region had detected subversive elements belonging to the Government of National Accord (GNA) who were allegedly receiving orders from Turkish intelligence.

He confirmed that units from the LNA had confronted these groups, as well as a number of extremists.
