Two Turkish nationals rescued in Libya’s Sirte

Two workers from Turkey stranded in Libya’s Sirte controlled by warlord Khalifa Haftar, were handed over Saturday to Turkish authorities in Misrata, according to the Libyan Red Crescent.

The two Turkish nationals were handed to Turkey’s Chief Consul in Misrata, Gurkan Gurmericliler, the Libyan Red Crescent said on social media.

Gurmericliler told Anadolu Agency that the workers were rescued because of efforts by the Turkish embassy, in coordination with the Libyan Red Crescent and Turkey’s Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH).

The two workers talked to their families, as Gurmericliler noted they will be sent to Turkey within days.
