Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country has lost two soldiers killed in Libya where Turkish troops are supporting the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA).
The Libyan government is fighting an insurgency by rebel forces under Gen Khalifa Haftar, based in eastern Libya.
Gen Haftar is backed by Egypt and the UAE, while the UN-backed government is supported by Turkey and its ally Qatar.
“We have two martyrs there in Libya,” President Erdogan is quoted by AFP news agency saying, before leaving for Azerbaijan on an official visit.
