Marshal Haftar's Libyan Army Continues Offensive on Tripoli

Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drone shot down in the southern suburbs of Tripoli


The Libyan National Army (LNA), under the command of Marshal Khalifa Haftar, during a Thursday attack on the Libyan capital Tripoli, launched a series of military strikes aviation according to the positions of the PNS (government of national accord) forces east of the capital. This was reported by Al Arabiya.

The combat aircraft of the LNA bombed the territory of the flight school located in Misurat, 200 km from Tripoli, where significant forces supporting the PNA are located. Earlier, the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drone, which was shot down by LNA forces in the southern suburbs of Tripoli Ain Zare, was launched from the school's territory.

The LNA forces managed to gain a foothold in the southern suburbs of the capital Ain Zara, the army continues to develop the offensive. In addition, the Khamza military camp was captured, which was repeatedly used by the PNS forces for counterattacks. Battles are fought in the areas of Al-Aziziyah, Hallya al-Furdzhan (in 10 km south of the center of Tripoli) and the route near the long-functioning capital international airport.

It is reported that during the MiG-21 LNA Haftar raid on Misurata Airport, a Turkish-owned Boeing 747 was allegedly destroyed. However, this information is unverified and it is currently impossible to confirm it. The photographs posted on the Web show a glow of fire and some buildings, but because of the night darkness, something is difficult to make out.

In turn, despite local media reports, Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj continues to argue that there is no Libyan National Army (LNA) offensive by Marshal Khalifa Haftar in the capital of Tripoli.

There is no control and assault on Tripoli and its areas

- he said.

Haftar announced a decisive attack on Tripoli with the task of taking possession of the capital on Thursday evening, addressing the Libyan people with a video message.

    Havtor's army is the right "barmaley" or not? How to disassemble them there? Ukraine is in the process of supplying weapons to both sides. in general, who is there who really supports whom Europe (maybe individual states), the United States, the Arab countries. interesting.

      Without military and diplomatic assistance from Western countries, the Government of National Salvation under the leadership of Faiz Saraj will not last for several months, Haftar’s troops have already taken Tripoli international airport and a number of areas of the capital. It is no coincidence that Great Britain has already convened an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.
      According to some reports, Saraj and his government have already fled to Tunisia, but whether Khalifa Haftar will become the new ruler of Libya will be decided not on the battlefield, but at the negotiating table with the participation of Russia, the USA, the EU, and Arab countries.

            Where does the strong personality come from? The last one in 2011 was vilely killed. As a symbol of united Libya, his son is nominated, but he will still depend on Haftar, and therefore on external players.

        A little earlier, Haftar made a statement that he does not consider himself as the president of Libya and will not participate in the elections. It is believed that Haftar could support one of Gaddafi’s children, son Seif or daughter Aisha.

        In 1977-1978 He graduated from the higher officer courses "Shot", and in 1983 he was a student of courses at the MV Frunze Academy, knows Russian.
        Former ally of Gaddafi. After the events in Chad, where he was defeated as the commander-in-chief of the Libyan forces, he was captured and joined the opposition to Gaddafi, after the latter renounced the prisoners.
        In the 90s he received US citizenship, where he lived for twenty years.

        It is not difficult to determine. France and Italy, with the support of the United States, have supplied their puppet PNS. And for Havtor (LNS) everyone who does not like the fact that "democratic" countries put them in charge.

Turks and emirates fight against each other almost openly - there are military specialists and equipment and units. Italy and France by special forces. Intelligence and drones. Qatar and the Saudis - in money. We help Haftar with the repair of equipment, we sell to his allies the weapons that they supply him. All practical drones he knocks down with our shells sold to the emirates. Plus, Saraj says that our privateers are fighting on the side of Haftar, but there is no normal evidence so far. request

    // In Syria, the Russian Federation protects the LAWFUL President-elect //
    So it is so. But if we take the emotions out of the brackets, what is the difference between a “pro-American” president - “pro-American policy” (as a consequence of economic, and perhaps political dependence on Western institutions) and “pro-Alavite” president (as a result of the collapse of the economy, the army, the riot war). Neither one nor the other reflects the opinion of all sectors of society (that is, the nation).

      Shahno: "neither one nor the other reflect the views of all walks of life."
      The fact is that there is no point of view that could reflect the opinion of all strata of society at the same time, if only because there are always contradictions in society. At least, there are those who feel good only when the other is bad, then the principle “I don’t care that I stand on the throat of others, the main thing is that I feel good,” and the most common “give me what my neighbor has, because I'm not worse and I don't care that I don't need it. " This applies to any state from Libya to the USSR. I remember a report from Libya, when the rebels explained that Gaddafi lives in luxury, and they get a pittance, not thinking at all that the citizens of the country have conditions for life, and the absence of a golden toilet does not affect the quality of life. Those. elementary greed ruined quite a prosperous country, which was Libya. Result, there is no Gaddafi and his luxury, but a person's life in the country is not worth a penny. Unfortunately, quite prosperous countries are ruined by envy, greed and stupidity of the majority.

    under Gaddafi there was order, and therefore it was not profitable for a handful of American Jews-it was not profitable to rob oil in troubled water-having provoked chaos in Libya loudly called by them a "civil war", the Jews, with their billions, were able to get hold of the oil wells and start robbery-naturally through 3 hands- the main wealth of oil; it is not for nothing that during the torture and murder of the legitimate president of Libya, Gaddafi, a certain "lady" named Hillary Clinton laughed at his death; and who is "supervised" by Clinton? ashpen the Jewish diaspora of America, well, it is also a political marionette in the hands of Jews
