>The Evacuation Of Turkish Citizens From Libya (Day 8)

>

It’s nice to back at home.

Yesterday evening, at 17:30 the frigate F-245 TCG Oruçreis docked at Marmaris harbor. The frigate was carrying 212 people evacuated from Libya’s Benghazi port.

Just short before midnight A-1600 TCG Iskenderun arrived in Marmaris harbor with 1528 evacuees from 26 nations.

Both ships were on the way since 25 February.

The Turkish Navy published photos from their voyage. They can see seen here.

While the naval ships were disembarking their guest in Marmaris the civilian ferries M/V Ankara and M/V Samsun docked in Tripolis harbour to pick up evacuees. This will be their first trip. The severe weather last week prevented them to reach Libya earlier.

The fast ferry M/V Orhan Gazi arrived in Ras Lanuf, to embark the evacuees in this port. Later during the day she proceeded to Benghazi.

Her sister M/V Osman Gazi was in Misurata in the morning to collect the evacuees here. Later she headed to Benghazi too.

Currently all ferries are in Benghazi.

The MoFA reported that they were no Turks waiting for evacuation at the Tripoli airport.

And it was announced that as of 27 February 16,860 person was evacuated by Turkey from Libya. When the ferries leave at least with 4,000 additional evacuees, the operation will slow down I guess.
