Turkey condemned on Wednesday a statement that was allegedly released by the Libyan Air Forces' Facebook account, which said that all Turkish civilian or military planes will be shot down if they enter Libyan airspace.
Turkey's Foreign Ministry released a statement saying that the alleged statement was "hostile" and "illegitimate."
"It is obvious that those who released this statement are from certain groups who have caused civilian losses and the demolition of the country's infrastructure by launching air strikes in Libya, and who have violated international law and human rights," the statement said.
The ministry statement also blamed the international community for not reacting to the air strikes up till now.
"Necessary steps have started to be taken," the statement said, adding that officials have raised the issue to the UN Secretary General's Libya Representative.
