Ahmed Al-Mesmari, a spokesperson for Khalifa Haftar’s forces, attacked Turkey, Qatar and the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA), accusing the latter of violating the ceasefire.

In two separate interviews with Youm7 newspaper and the official Egyptian Channel One, Al-Mesmari said that the declared ceasefire in Libya was  “very fragile” due to a lack of commitment, accusing Turkey of continuing the transport of weapons and ammunition through airports and seaports to Tripoli (west).

Al-Mesmari added: “Qatar continues to finance terrorist attacks and provides political and religious cover through its propagandists, namely Al-Gharyani, Al-Sallabi and Al-Qaradawi.”

He continued: “The weapons have been airlifted from several airports from Turkey to Libya, as well as by sea, to support the armed militias. The armed forces have targeted on several occasions weapons and ammunition depots belonging to the militias that receive Turkish ships smuggling weapons to Tripoli.”
