The Libyan army said that its forces carried out military operations, targeting mercenaries and elements of the Chadian opposition stationed inside Libyan territory, specifically in the “Turbo” area on the country’s southern border.
He added that the “Special Task Force of Major General Tariq bin Ziyad” managed today, Monday, during its clash with these armed groups, to destroy a number of their vehicles and armored vehicles and eliminate those inside them, in exchange for the killing of one of its members.
Since the killing of Chadian President Idriss Deby last April, the Libyan army has put its forces on alert on the border with Chad to prevent the entry and exit of Chadian rebel militias.
Last June, the Libyan army launched a military operation in southwest Libya to pursue terrorists and expel gangs of African mercenaries, saying that it threatens the stability and security of the country.
The Chadian opposition factions that came after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime are active in the vast areas of southern Libya, and they control most of the smuggling outlets. They have been implicated in several crimes against the local population, including “kidnapping and theft”, in addition to human smuggling, fuel and drug trafficking.
According to a report of the UN Panel of Experts on Libya issued last March, Chadian armed groups are stationed in southern Libya, which have become part of its social life, and cities such as Hun and Marzouk are witnessing the residence of an increasing number of Chadian militants.
The so-called “Change and Accord Front in Chad” is stationed in the Jufra region, while the “Military Command Council to Save the Republic” is stationed in the border area between Libya and Chad in the Kouri Bogodi region, and they operate more than 100 vehicles in the border area.
The remnants of “Al-Qaeda” and “ISIS” are stationed in the southern region and take from it a field of activity as well as bases for launching attacks on the rest of the Libyan cities, in light of the weakness and even the absence of security oversight in it and its extension to neighboring countries.
