Turkey’s President Erdogan said his country has begun moving troops into Libya. There are few details about the scale of the intended deployment. Thus far, Turkey’s objective seems to be to remain in a supportive role and not conduct front-line combat. Turkey already provides drones and armoured vehicles. But it seems that it will rely on Syrian militia mercenaries instead of sending its own combat forces.
Erdogan confirmed there will be an operations centre in Libya commanded by a Turkish Lieutenant General. The “goal of the Turkish armed forces not to fight but to ensure a cease fire in Libya” he said.
