The Turkish Embassy in Tripoli has denied Turkey’s involvement in the ongoing clashes in the oil crescent region.

The Embassy said in a statement that allegations of Tobruk-based House of Representatives about Turkey’s support to Benghazi Defence Brigades (BDB) are baseless.

House of Representatives accused Qatar and Turkey of supplying weapons to BDB in their attack on Dignity Operation forces in the oil crescent region.
