With joint Qatari-Turkish efforts… the rescue of 7 Turks detained in Libya for nearly two years

The Anatolia News Agency stated, according to Turkish sources, that 7 Turkish citizens who had been detained in eastern Libya for nearly two years were rescued due to baseless allegations.

Most of the rescued Turkish citizens were working in the restaurant sector in eastern Libya, before they were kidnapped by forces loyal to retired Libyan Major General Khalifa Haftar.

Turkish sources said that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke by phone with the citizens after their return to Turkey, and expressed his best wishes to them and congratulated them on their safe return. In turn, the seven citizens thanked Erdogan for their country’s great interest in saving them.

The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated – in a statement – that the arrival of the seven citizens to the country came as a result of unremitting efforts and contacts to rescue them, and the ministry added that the Libyan and Qatari governments contributed to the process of releasing the detained Turkish citizens.
