BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:15 P.M.) – An Algerian official told the Saudi-owned Al-Watan publication on Monday that the allege Turkish arms shipment to Libya has threatened the stability of the region.

According to Al-Watan, the unnamed Algerian official claimed that the alleged Turkish arms was “a real declaration of war against us,” as rockets and 48 million rounds of ammunition were recently discovered along the Algerian-Libyan border.

“The military and security forces are on highest alert to confront any attempt to undermine our security,” he added.

Libyan officials in Benghazi have also heavily criticized the alleged arms shipment, while the Turkish Foreign Ministry has denied any role in its delivery to the war-torn North African nation.
