Tripoli, Libya – There has been a move from Russia against Turkey, which supports the national reconciliation government. Russia will pay $ 2,000 a month for soldiers who will fight in Hafter’s ranks.
Russia, which has been recruiting mercenaries for the killer Assad in Syria, has now opened the mouth of the bag for the coup-maker Khalifa Haftar. Russia also recruited mercenaries for Khalifa Haftar after Assad.
Russia has made a deal with 1,000 people from Kamushli County in Syria to fight in the ranks of Hafter for $ 2,000 a month. Russia, seeking to strengthen the coup-maker Hafter in Libya, sent as many as 1,000 Syrians to Libya.
The killing was carried out in Syria by Assad’s troops, with 1,000 people aged between 20 and 40. Those whose applications are accepted will be prepared for war by accelerated training by Russian commanders. Soldiers who agree to $ 2000 per person per month will be in the ranks of Khalifa Haftar for at least 5 months. Thus, the number of mercenaries sent to Khalifa Haftar reached 5 thousand.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday received Fayez al-Sarraj, head of Libya’s UN-recognized government, in Istanbul.
The closed-door meeting at the Vahdettin Mansion lasted nearly two-and-a-half hours.
Libya has been torn by civil war since the ouster of late ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
The Government of National Accord (GNA) was founded in 2015 under a UN-led agreement. But efforts for a long-term political settlement have failed due to a military offensive by forces loyal to renegade general Khalifa Haftar, who is backed by Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Russia.
Diplomatic efforts have been underway in recent weeks to reach a solution to the Libyan conflict following victories made by the Libyan Army against militias of Haftar.
