Turkey sends about 50 ISIS mercenaries to fight in Libya

Laila Muhammed –

The Turkish state continues to send pro-Ankara Syrian mercenaries to Libya to fight alongside the Al-Wefaq government militia, and a few days ago the Libyan National Army announced the arrest of one of the most dangerous ISIS operatives called “Muhammad al-Ruwaidani al-Makani Abu Bakr al-Ruwaidani or al-Baidani,” who had moved from Syria to Libya.

The mercenary who headed the group was a leader earlier during the ISIS occupation of the city of Homs, and the “leader” mercenary pledged allegiance to the Al-Nusra Front after the ISIS collapse in the Badia, headed to the areas of the Turkish army in Afrin, then moved to fight in Libya with 49 mercenaries from ISIS alongside Concord government.

It is worth noting that the Libyan National Army had announced earlier the arrest of “Muhammad al-Ruwaidani called (Abu Bakr al-Ruwaidani or al-Baidani),” one of the most dangerous ISIS mercenaries who had moved from Syria to Libya.

This comes amid international calls to stop foreign interference, which is exacerbating the situation in war-torn Libya.

For several months, Turkey sends Syrian mercenaries from northern Syria to Tripoli to fight alongside the Al-Wifaq government militia against the Libyan army.
