Specifically, two Turkish frigates appeared at the port of Tripoli, along with cargo ships and disembarked Turkish troops accompanied by armor, providing anti-aircraft cover to the operation.
The Turkish frigates are TCG “Goksu” and TCG “Gokova”, while one of the ships that landed in the Turkish Army is a RoRo passenger ferry.
About 300 Turkish troops landed, while Turkish armored vehicles with Korkut anti-aircraft guns and AIFV anti-tank rocket launchers were sighted in the city.
There are also two oil tankers and a cargo ship off the port.
At the same time, he sent a political flight and a new “load” of Turkish Islamist fighters to Libya.
"They were transferred..to Gaziantep airport,where they boarded a Turkish commercial aircraft..in #Tripoli..his fighters disembarked with luggage& weapons.

What is interesting is that the weapons were transported to Mitiga Airport where, according to local sources, the Turks have established their headquarters and their business center.
This also explains the LNA’s attack yesterday as the Haftar forces have targeted the Turkish expedition.
It is worth noting that as soon as yesterday Erdogan agreed in his telephone communication with N. Trump that “any foreign interference in Libya should end”

Understanding the nature of the GNA is of great interest to AlQaida fighters from the shura council in Benghazi, one of the groups that attacked the US embassy in Benghazi and assassinated US Ambassador John Christopher Stevens in the ranks of pro-Turkish regimes.
Noteworthy is the image of an Islamist fighter of this group carrying an American M249 who was “dived” by the US embassy that tragic day.
