Erdogan sent special forces and military equipment to Libya

Turkey sent special forces and military equipment to Libya to support the Government of National Accord and its ally, Faiz Saraj, who settled in Tripoli. This is reported by the Arab media.

According to Al-Arabia TV channel, Turkish military advisers also arrived in the Libyan capital to "assess" the military situation. It is reported that at the same time as the arrival of Turkish troops, the Turkish parliament approved the agreement on military cooperation between Turkey and the PNS, signed in late November, implying the provision of military assistance. In addition, in a number of cities in the west of Libya, under the control of the PNS, general mobilization has been announced.



According to some Arab media, despite statements by the head of the PNS, Saraj about stopping the advance of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Marshal Khalifa Haftar, the situation is not in favor of the PNS. Pro-Islamist groups fighting under the flag of the PNS are getting out of Saraj’s control. Reported on the failed assassination attempt on him by militants of one of the radical groups.

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the Government of Libya’s National Accord can count on Turkey’s military support.

          It definitely didn't work out. Before Russian intervention, he had undividedly owned oil smuggling for several years. Now it’s Libya’s turn. For bribes of small Turks and climbed there.

            Turkey may gradually get drawn into another regional war, which can become more fierce than the previous one. But in Libya-dual power. Tripoli is opposed by the military units of Field Marshal Khalif Haftar, whom Erdogan considers "an illegal representative." Around these two centers, military-political coalitions have been formed that will somehow be drawn into the funnel of the confrontation. Ankara is already talking about the "anti-Turkish coalition", which includes Greece, Egypt and US-backed Israel.

              A lot depends on the position on this Turkish intervention in the Arab affairs of the League of Arab countries and just the Arab countries separately. It is clear that Turkey has a very sore interest in Libya, but in the end it can get it in the teeth. Moreover, the Western countries that support opponents of Haftar are unlikely to unconditionally cede their influence in Libya to a new player.

              But in Libya - dual power

              Dual power - dual power, but in general the country is bled of blood, perhaps worse than Syria. Yes, and Turkey, if something happens, will both get in and get out of there. This is not to mention the fact that they have the best positions in the region compared to competitors. Who else would dare to send their troops there directly and not fight with the hands of the "natives"?

                All the same, Turkey is a bold and skillful country with a very good base of analytics and actions on this basis. For comparison, there are countries with a more powerful economy and technology, but instinct (proper analysis and policy making) three steps forward is problematic for them.

        Oil was transported from Syria by fuel trucks to Turkey and further by tankers around the world, even to Bandera. Libyan oil is best suited for aviation fuel. Again, huge reserves of fresh water. Turkish scientists went to Libya to look for oil.

      Erdogan decided that without his help, the forces of Faiz Saraj could not cope with the offensive, and obviously membership in NATO forces us to do so. But how and with what can the Turkish special forces help, which, like special units of other countries, must solve specific problems? Regarding additional equipment - gradually destroy the Turkish. The political result for Erdogan may not be entirely pleasant. But this is his decision, he should disentangle the joy of the Americans, who themselves support the same side.

        What spraying? Turkey does not fight either on two fronts or on three, for there is no opposing army in Syria (there is no Syrian) against them, and Kurds are more likely partisan connections. In Libya, the LNA is rather approaching Kurdish formations in spite of the high rank of Haftar. So, Erdogan is not afraid to get on the head, where it is possible he does not do anything except grunting (well, he’s a shit out of silence, nothing more).
