According to al-Mismari, LNA few days ago "responded to calls from the UN and friendly countries to take their part, 60 kilometers from Tripoli, to give the possibility to start negotiations on a cease-fire." However, he said, the forces of the NTC with the support of Turkish UAV began to strike of the army during its relocation. According to al-Mismari, in the sky over the Tarragon at the same time, there were six Turkish armed drones.

"The Libyan national army did not want to expose the city to Tarragon destruction, so how could he be subjected to air bombing, so the army retreated in a safe, well-protected areas," said al-Mismari during his emergency video message broadcast on the official websites of the LNA.

According to al-Mismari, given that in the fighting on the side of the NTC involved Turkey, "a NATO member, it means that the LDF is opposed to is actually part of the Alliance".

"Turkey is not interested in the Government of national consensus. All that interests her is her natural resources, the establishment of control over the market of oil and gas, and pipeline (in the Mediterranean). (The head of the NTC Fayez) Sarraj involve us in international adventure," said al-Mismari.

The strength of the national consensus Government of Libya announced on Thursday the return of control of the administrative borders of Tripoli.

The LDF, in turn, stated that it had redeployed its forces outside Tripoli to the success of the resumption of the talks of the military Committee (5 5).

To the East sits a Parliament elected by people, and in the West, in the capital Tripoli, the rules generated with the support of the UN and the European Union, the Government of national consent headed by Saragam. The authorities of the Eastern part of the country operate independently from Tripoli to cooperate with the Libyan national army, led by Marshal Khalifa the Haftarot, which is April 2019 not stop trying to seize Tripoli.
