A report by a UN Panel of Experts said the foreign mercenaries were affiliated with Lancaster 6 DMCC and Opus Capital Asset Limited FZE, both registered at free zones in the UAE, Bloomberg reported.
Turkish military advisers are providing training, consultancy to Libyan government forces in line with UN Security Council Resolution.
Turkey's President Recep Tayip Erdogan says the Turkish Armed Forces are pursuing and neutralising terrorists non-stop, adding that its operations across the border also continue without interruption.
The announcement comes after Libyan Army's recent gains against militias of warlord Khalifa Haftar, which are supported by France, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt.
The advance by the forces of UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) came less than a week after the warlord Khalifa Haftar declared himself the ruler of Libya.
Since the ousting and death of ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, two seats of power have emerged in Libya.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan met with Fayez al-Sarraj - head of UN-recognised - Tripoli-based Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) in Istanbul and expressed the continuation of Turkey's support to the GNA.
While the leader of the UN-backed government, Fayez al Sarraj, has failed to rally support from the EU states, Europe’s divided stance on Khalifa Haftar's military operation hinders any attempt to stop the ongoing war in Libya.
