LIBYA: 200,000 people took to Benghazi streets in anti-Turkey protest

Up to 200,000 Benghazi residents gathered at al-Kish Square on Friday, February 14, protesting against an actual active Turkish military intervention into the country.

The demo called “Stop terror” has been attended by the representatives of tribes, municipal officials, members of student and other public organisations, delegations from nearby districts and localities, and all concerned citizens of Libya. In addition, the residents of other Lybian cities joined the Benghazi protesters showing their attitude to the treacherous invasion into their country.

During the protest, all those interested in shaping Libyan destiny could become a part of the “Stop terror” movement and join the ranks of the Libyan National Army (LNA).

At the end of the demonstration, the participants announced the main points of the people’s resolution appealing to the international community against the Turkish intervention.

According to a military source, during the last month and a half, a massive army contingent comprised of at least 7,500 militants from Syria, 3,000 regular army soldiers, and up to 2,000 mercenaries from the shady Turkish private defence consultancy SADAT was deployed in Tripoly and Misurata by Turkey.

Moreover, completely ignoring conditions of the arms embargo Turkey transported to Libya 5,000 tons of firearms and ammunition, dozens of tanks, and artillery, the source said.
