Tripoli: Without mincing any words, Brig. Gen. Ahmed Al-Mismari, the spokesman of the Libyan National Army, Monday said that Turkey is looking for a place in the Muslim world only after its rejection from the European Union (EU).

"Turkey is looking for a presence and a foothold in the Muslim countries. After its rejection from the European Union (EU), Turkey has returned to the Muslim world, but in doing so it collided with the Saudi and Egyptian giants and the rest of the Arab and Muslim countries", Al-Mismari said while talking to Okaz daily.

Brig. Gen. Ahmed Al-Mismari also said that the support being provided by the Qatari regime and Turkey to the “Muslim Brotherhood” and other terrorist groups, comes from a creedal perspective.

Asked for evidence, as they have always blamed the Qatari regime and Turkey of supporting the terrorist militias, Al-Mismari said the Qatari support is not recent.

“It has been there since the fall of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Thereafter Qatar has pledged to provide direct support to the ‘Muslim Brotherhood’. The Brotherhood struck alliances with terrorist groups engaged in the fighting and a wing of ‘Al-Qaeda in Libya’, which is receiving financial, political and media support from Qatar.”

These terrorist groups are also receiving support from Turkey at all levels and the Libyan National Army has cogent proof on this, Al-Mismari asserted.

He said Qatari weapons have been flowing into Libya via ships since 2012 and then via planes that landed in Libyan airports. The Qatari support has destroyed the Libyan infrastructure and made the country a hot spot that attracts terrorists.

He reiterated that they are convinced the support from Qatar and Turkey emanates from a creedal perspective and creedal support is very dangerous.
