Libya’s PM Says Turkey Supplying Weapons to Rival Tripoli Group

27 February 2015

Libya’s internationally recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni said his government would stop dealing with Turkey as it was sending weapons to a rival group in Tripoli, ramping up his rhetoric against Ankara. Two administrations, one in the capital and Thinni’s in the east, have been vying for power since an armed group called Libya Dawn seized Tripoli in July and reinstated lawmakers from a previous assembly, four years after Muammar Gaddafi’s ousting.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Libya: Eight killed in air strike by Tobruk government

Tuesday 24th March 2015

EIGHT civilians were killed in an air strike near Tripoli yesterday in an attack claimed by Libya’s Tobruk-based government.

Warplanes belonging to the internationally recognised government attacked Tarhouna, a town near the capital.

The new strike cast doubt over hopes expressed by the United Nations on Sunday that peace talks wouldn’t fall apart.

The talks had been extended for two days yesterday, but prospects for agreement were shaky following the continuing attacks.

Weeks of talks in Morocco had nearly collapsed after forces allied to the Tobruk parliament attacked the capital on Sunday.

“For the moment, no-one is leaving. We have had a difficult moment, I’m sure you are aware,” said UN envoy Bernardino Leon at the time.

Mr Leon admitted that there were factions on both sides pushing for a military solution but insisted most were committed to dialogue.

But yesterday’s attacks left hopes of progress stranded.
