Libya's Government of National Accord (GNA) on Friday took back parts of southern Tripoli from the eastern-based forces led by commander Khalifa Haftar, adding to a series of recent losses to his 13-month campaign to seize the capital.

Forces allied with Libya's United Nations -supported government in Tripoli said on Thursday that they have wrestled another key town from their rivals who have been trying to capture the Libyan capital for over a year.

"In the event Turkish interests in Libya are targeted, this will have very grave consequences", Mr Aksoy said.

In a statement on Thursday, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said the warning was in response to a media report that Haftar's forces were planning attacks against Turkey's interests in the country. Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin was quoted as saying by broadcaster NTV that attacks on Turkish positions would prompt heavy retaliation.

In what could be their most significant advance for almost a year, the GNA took control of the al-Watiya airbase southwest of Tripoli on Monday.

Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency said the GNA carried out five air operations against forces loyal to Haftar in the past 24 hours. The Tripoli-based GNA is backed by the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Russian Federation, and the GNA is supported by Turkey and allied Syrian fighters.

Since 2014, Libya has been divided between the two rival factions. On Wednesday, the LNA announced it was withdrawing two to three kilometres to ease conditions for Tripoli residents at the end of the Muslim holiday Ramadan.

The sources added that Egypt feared that the Libyan government could ask Turkey to build a military base in the country in line with a cooperation agreement signed previous year between the two sides.
