Major General Ahmed Al-Mismari, spokesperson of the Libyan National Army (LNA), revealed Wednesday that a Turkish warship fired missiles from Libyan waters at Al-Ajaylat area, but that there were no casualties , reported Libyan newspaper Al-Marsad.
He said there were no casualties.
In a press statement, Major General Al-Mismari said that the intervention of the Turkish navy continues. “Previously, Turkish warships accompanied cargo ships carrying weapons, military equipment, and Syrian terrorists and mercenaries,” asserted Armed Forces spokesperson, added Al-Marsad.
Firing missiles is a dangerous development in the ongoing military operations in the west of the country, he said.
According to the Libyan paper, several citizens have taken pictures of the Turkish warship and the wreckage of a US-made RIM-66E-5 surface-to-air missile that landed south of the city of Al-Ajaylat. This type of missile is part of the armament of the Turkish Navy.
Libyan news websites suggested that the Turkish warship may have intended to target Al-Watiya Air Force Base, which is located in the south. However, the missiles were aimed and fired in the wrong direction.
