On Friday, the Turkish Ministry of Defense announced that its forces have organized heavy weapons training for the forces of the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Libya.

The ministry said its forces “continue to guarantee the training of the Libyan army under the agreement on training, co-operation and military consultations” signed between Ankara and Tripoli.

They explained that the Turkish troops would provide the Libyan forces with NATO-type training in heavy weapons and would carry out artillery, rocket, and mortar fire.

On November 27, 2019, Turkey and the Tripoli-based Libyan National Accord government signed two memoranda of understanding to strengthen security and military co-operation between them and demarcate the maritime borders, prompting a reaction from the Libyan National Army, Greece, and other countries in the region.

Turkey is the biggest foreign supporter of the National Accord Government in its conflict with the Libyan National Army led by Khalifa Haftar.
