ANKARA – Turkish political analyst, close to the Turkish government, Yusuf Katipoglu, revealed the existence of a Turkish plan with the complicity of Fayez al-Sarraj government (GNA), that paves the way for further concessions to establish Turkish military bases in Libya under the pretext of protecting oil fields.

Katipoglu, in an interview on the ninth Turkish TV channel broadcasting in Arabic, spoke about the size of the Turkish aggression in Libya represented by intelligence participation, drones, the presence of frigates, battleships and Turkish naval ships located off the Libyan coast.

“Do not be surprised if I tell you that perhaps in the coming days we will hear about building Turkish military bases in eastern Libya and in the north of Libya to protect oil installations after the end of the battles that revolve around them,” he said.

Katipoglu pointed out that the aim of the Turkish aggression was not only western Libya, but Libya as a whole, including the Libyan East and Benghazi.
