TRIPOLI, Dec 22 (MENA) - Qatar and Turkey use trade ships for military purposes to support the militias in Tripoli, the Libyan national army said.

A ship, sailed by a Turkish crew, was held in Libya, the army said, adding that the Libyan navy is investigating with its crew.

Eastern Libyan forces seized a Grenada-flagged ship with a Turkish crew on Saturday off the Libyan coast amid rising tensions with Turkey.
