On 31 May, High State Council (HSC) Chair Khaled Al-Mishri spoke with the Turkish Ambassador to Libya Kenan Yilmaz about the security situation in Zawiyya. Earlier, Yilmaz met with local representatives from Zawiyya. Officially, Turkey continues to deny any involvement in the attacks, despite it being common knowledge that the EAA relies on Turkish TB2 drones. Later the same day, Mishri condemned the air strikes on the city at an event in Zawiyya. He was then threatened by those present and had to leave the room.
