Libya’s struggle for its right to democracy continues, argues the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah. At the same time, Turkey acts as an ally of Tripoli in achieving this goal, while other parties to the conflict have their eyes on the oil and gas wealth of this country.
For the past 13 months, the bombing of Libyan cities controlled by the Government of National Accord by the Libyan National Army has not stopped. Field Marshal eager for power to become a dictator. He launched an attack on Tripoli in April 2019, trying to deprive people of their dreams of freedom and democracy.
