The Libyan National Army managed to shoot down these Turkish aircraft before they could bomb the LNA forces at the airbase.

The Libyan Parliament Member, Salah Al-Sahbi, mourned the loss of the LNA members in Al-Rajban city.

“Mercy be upon the souls of the martyrs who were targeted at the northern entrance gate to the city of Al-Rajban. They were targeted by Turkish drones used by forces aligned to the Government of National Accord. This comes amid the announcement of the second ‘Libya Dawn’ operation to target the cities of Al-Rajban and Zintan.” Al-Sahbi said in his statement.

“These criminal acts will soon be over, and their perpetrators and supporters will be prosecuted and held accountable to the law. 

As for Turkey, which has entered into our internal affairs, it will pay the price for all the damage it has caused to Libya. We will not forgive what it did as a state, even after the end of Erdogan’s presidency” The Parliament Member added.
