Turkey trains GNA militias as extremists flock to Tripoli


The Libyan National Army (LNA) has released video footage of Turkish military trainers showing militia fighters in Tripoli how to operate Turkish armored personal carriers.

According to an official statement by the LNA information office, the footage was found on the phone of a captured Government of National Accord (GNA) fighter.

People can be heard speaking Turkish as a man directs GNA militia fighters how to “turn on the lights” and lift the protective screen for the windshield. It is not clear from the footage if the instructor is Turkish military or a private military instructor.
