HOR’s Security Committee: Libya Will Not Be A Gateway for the Return of the Ottoman Caliphate – Al Marsad

The National Defense and Security Committee (NDSC) at the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) strongly condemned the statement made by the Turkish President Recep Erdogan on his willingness to deploy Turkish forces in Libya if the Government of National Accord (GNA) asked them to do so.

[Libya, 10 December 2019] – The NDSC demanded in its press release, received by Al Marsad, the activation of the joint Arab defense agreement by the League of Arab States since Libya is one of its founding members. The statement stressed that Libya will never be a gateway for the return of the Ottoman Caliphate to the Arab world.

The Committee called on the League of Arab States to hold an extraordinary meeting of the member states to take a firm stance in the face of the Turkish invasion of Libya, calling on the Libyan National Army (LNA) forces to target any movement of Turkish troops within Libya’s territorial waters or Libyan airspace.


Concluding its statement, the HoR National Defense and Security Committee affirmed that any entity or facility used militarily for the Turkish military effort in Libya shall be considered a legitimate target of the Libyan National Army.
