UN condemns unprecedented external intervention in Libya

On Wednesday, the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, condemned "external intervention of unprecedented levels" in Libya, with "the delivery of sophisticated equipment and the number of mercenaries involved in the battles."

Guterres expressed during a ministerial conference via video to the Security Council, his concern about the buildup of military forces in the vicinity of the city of Sirte, located between Tripoli in the west of the country, and Benghazi in the east.

Over the past few months, Turkey has brought thousands of Syrian mercenaries to Libya to fight in the ranks of the armed militias that control Tripoli.

Not only did Ankara send mercenaries to Tripoli, it sent officers from its army and set up operating rooms inside Libyan territory to support the Fayez al-Sarraj government, which is protected by militias.
