Al-Arabiya Network quoted sources as saying that Turkish warships arrived off the Libyan coast of Qara Bulley, which are believed to pave the way for a naval bombardment of the Libyan army forces in Tarhuna.
This comes two days after the Turkish-backed accord government rejected a truce that the Libyan army had announced accepting during the month of Ramadan, in response to calls from countries that it described as brotherly.
In the same context, the spokesperson for the General Command of the Libyan Army, Major General Ahmed al-Mismari, had announced on Wednesday, April 29th, that the army had responded to calls from the international community and brotherly and friendly countries to stop the fighting immediately during the month of Ramadan, stressing that he would reserve the right to respond to any threat or suspicious movement or a violation of the armistice, carried out by armed groups affiliated with Accord government (GNA).
Meanwhile, the Accord government (GNA) announced on Thursday its rejection of this truce, indicating that it would continue striking what it called "hotbeds of threat wherever they exist, and ending illegal groups throughout the country."
For its part, Ankara confirmed in a statement that it continues to support the GNA, in the face of the Libyan army.
