Libyan mayor says most mercenaries have left Bani Walid

ISTANBUL- The mercenaries which provided assists to Libyan renegade commander Khalifa Haftar from Russia, reportedly have left 90% of them the town of Bani Walid in a big convoy, its mayor claimed on Tuesday.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan who is the president of Turkey earlier this year told that more than 2,000 Wagner mercenaries were fighting in the war-torn country.

Following the ouster of late ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya’s government was founded in 2015 under a UN-led political agreement.

On March 26, Operation Peace Storm was launched in order to counter explosions and attacks on the capital Tripoli and other parts of northwest Libya by the government- which has been experiencing a long duration of besiege by Haftar’s forces since April 2019.
