Libyan National Army (LNA) commander Khalifa Haftar ordered on Friday strikes against Turkish ships anchored in Libya’s territorial waters in retaliation to Ankara’s flagrant offensive.

He also ordered attacks against “strategic Turkish targets” in Libyan territories, which includes companies, centers and projects.

LNA spokesman Ahmed al-Mismari confirmed that air forces were given orders to attack ships and boats within Libya’s territorial waters.

All flights to and from Turkey have been halted and any Turkish national in Libya will be arrested, he revealed.
