Three unidentified frigates have been seen through satellite images off the coast of Misrata, not too far away from Sirte. It is suspected that two are Turkish G Class Frigates while the other remains a mystery. There is a high likelihood that the third frigate is Italian, as cooperation between Turkey and Italy is ramping up. Recently the two nations launched a joint naval drill.
If an Italian frigate is indeed there, then it could be an indication of greater cooperation between the two in the near future.
