the Minister of national defence of Turkey, Hulusi Akar said about changing the balance of power in Libya. Thus he summed up the results of intervention in his country’s military action in the African country. It is reported by Anadolu.
Ankar said that now the government of national consensus (NTC) has the advantage over the Libyan national army (LNA) field Marshal Khalifa the Haftarot. According to the Minister, the success of the NTC was made possible thanks to the support of the Turkish military advisers, as well as their help of the army in military training.
18 may it became known that the forces of the NTC with the support of the Turkish security forces knocked out the Libyan national army (LNA) from the air base at Tripoli. This database was of great strategic importance to the Haftarot: it was used in the operation to capture the capital of Libya.
