CAIRO – 18 February 2020: The Libyan National Army (LNA) led by Khalifa Haftar on Tuesday announced destroying a Turkish ship in the Port of Tripoli, in the capital, which it said was carrying weapons and ammunition.

"A Turkish ship loaded with weapons and ammunition, which docked this morning in the port of Tripoli, was destroyed," said the media center of the LNA's Dignity Operations Room on Facebook.

Chief of Staff of the Libyan naval forces Major General Faraj al Mahdawi in December said the navy is on high alert to confront any possible attack by Turkish forces on Libya.

In statements to Al Arabiya news channel, he said the navy is well prepared to repel any Turkish violation of the Libyan coast.

The army is also ready for action and will block any backup for the militias and prevent access of Turkish forces into the Libyan lands, he said.

Tuesday’s incident comes a month after the Participating states in the Berlin Conference on Libya pledge not to interfere in Libyan domestic affairs. The meeting was attended by many world leaders, including Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan; Haftar; and his rival, Fayez Al-Sarraj, head of Libya’s Government of National Accord.
