A Turkish drone, which had reportedly been firing missiles despite a truce, has fallen south of Tripoli, the Libyan National Army said on Sunday.

In a related development, both of Libya’s warring factions accused each other of violating a ceasefire proposed by Turkey and Russia, as fighting continued around the capital, Tripoli, on Sunday.

Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA) Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj invited Turkey to turn Libya into an “Ottoman state,” alleged the speaker of the rival faction in Libya’s civil war in a visit to Egypt.
