Libyan National Army Commander Marshal Khalifa Haftar ordered the sinking of Turkish ships, said Libyan Navy commander Admiral Farag el Mahdawi to the Greek Skai TV station.
The authorities of the eastern part of Libya consider the Government of National Accord in Tripoli illegal and consider the memorandum on maritime zones signed by Turkey and the Government of National Accord illegal. This agreement, according to Greece, violates its sovereign rights. After signing the memorandum, Greece sent the ambassador of Libya and began to strengthen ties with Marshal Haftar.
”I have an order… as soon as the Turkish research vessels arrive, I will have a solution. I will sink them myself. I have this order from Haftar,” the Libyan navy official said.
