Libya’s Thani says Turkey supplying weapons to rival

Libya’s internationally recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thani said his government would stop dealing with Turkey because it was sending weapons to a rival group in Tripoli so “the Libyan people kill each other”.

Two administrations, one in the capital and Thani’s in the east, have been battling for power since the armed group Libya Dawn seized Tripoli in July and reinstated lawmakers from a previous assembly, four years after Moammar Gadhafi was ousted.

A spokesman for Turkey’s Foreign Ministry strongly denied Thani’s allegations.

Thani also accused Qatar of giving “material” support to the rival side in the Libyan conflict.

A spokesman for Thani’s parliament said Wednesday the assembly’s president would appoint Haftar as top army commander.

The Brotherhood has a presence in the rival parliament in Tripoli and western Libya.

The Brotherhood in Libya says it is a peaceful organization.
