Turkey has returned to its “first biography”, and has struck all the attempts to calm down in Libya completely, by sending a new batch of mercenaries to it.
According to a report by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Thursday, the authorities of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stopped the process of returning “mercenaries” of the Syrian factions loyal to the Turkish government from Libyan lands.
Erdogan’s authorities were not satisfied with that, but rather sent a new batch of 380 mercenaries to Libya during the past days, and the group was brought to Turkey at the beginning, and from there they were sent to the Libyan territories.
These Turkish moves recorded a state of escalating resentment among these mercenaries for refusing to stay there and for Ankara not fulfilling its promises related to their return, especially their return, especially since their conditions are very bad there.
On April 3, the Syrian Observatory warned of the passage of days while the process of returning Syrian “mercenaries” loyal to Turkey from Libya is still on hold until now, so that the batch that left the Libyan lands on March 25 and did not return to Syria yet .
On Tuesday, the Commander-in-Chief of the Libyan Army, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, called on the national unity government to “work with all force to expel the mercenaries and support the armed forces and police agencies to assume their duties.”
While France demanded the necessity of expelling the mercenaries from Libya, this request was met with evasiveness from the head of what is known as the “Supreme Council of State”, who called for a distinction between Turkish forces and others.
Since the announcement of the UN mission to Libya on February 5, and the formation of the new executive authority, the file of foreign mercenaries in Libya has returned to the forefront of events, amid international demands to withdraw those elements from Libya, and to respect the UN roadmap that will lead the country to holding parliamentary and presidential elections in Libya. Next December.
The United States and other countries pledged to use their diplomatic influence to support the immediate departure of mercenaries from the country suffering from the ravages of foreign intervention.
Turkey is accused of sending mercenaries to Libya and violating international decisions banning arms supplies to the country, and transgressing the will of the international community that was crystallized in the outcomes of the Berlin conference, which are: strengthening monitoring the arms embargo, demobilizing and disarming militias, and imposing sanctions on the party that violates the armistice.
And at the end of last year, a secret European Union document revealed that Turkey’s continuing violations of its ships, which are used in the illegal supply of weapons to Libya.
Turkey is currently conducting mysterious and suspicious movements among the mercenaries; Between a batch that did not return to Syria and one that disappeared in Turkey, accusations of “maneuvering” are growing.
Since the departure of a batch of Syrian mercenaries from Libya at the end of last March, the file of withdrawing thousands of Syrian mercenaries from the Libyan lands has stagnated, and there has been no significant movement in this file until today, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
