LNA of Marshal Haftar put forward an ultimatum to the PNS Faiz Saraj

The Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, issued an ultimatum to the Government of National Accord (PNS) Faiz Saraj, demanding the release of the cities of Sirte and Tripoli within 72 hours. This was reported by Al Arabiya TV channel, citing a statement by the official representative of the LNA Ahmed al-Mismari.


The LNA demanded that the armed formations supporting the PNS leave the territories of the cities of Sirte and Tripoli. The withdrawal of units is given 72 hours, during which the LNA agrees not to attack forces departing from the above settlements. If the ultimatum is ignored, the Libyan National Army will resume attacks on the positions of the armed forces of the PNS.

The LNA commented on the information of some Arab media that the PNS would request military assistance from Turkey, saying that it was "an attempt by a drowning man to grab onto a straw."

On the eve of the official representative of the LNA Ahmed al-Mismari said that the forces of the Libyan National Army completed the land encirclement of the PNS-controlled armed forces stationed in Tripoli. The only way to supply arms remains the sea.

Previously, information appeared about the appearance of Turkish special forces in Tripoli, which was entrusted with the functions of protecting members of the government of people's consent (PNS). Declared the receipt of military equipment of Turkish production. 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.

After the assassination of Muammar Gaddafi, there is a dual power in Libya: the PNS Sarajah, recognized by the EU and the UN, sits in Tripoli, and in the east of the country there is a popularly elected parliament supported by the LNA. Marshal Khalifa Haftar on April 4 gave the order to launch a large-scale offensive on Tripoli.

    In essence, this is a hint of complete surrender. If Khalifa Haftar takes control of Tripoli and Sirte, then the PNS will, in principle, be over. hi

        They have access to the sea to follow the example of mattresses that were dumped from Libya by sea within 48 hours, as soon as Haftar launched the April offensive on Tripoli. I think so that their "last steamboat" hangs somewhere near the Libyan coast, and tickets for it have already been sold out in advance, but until they have a fifth point, they will show their support to the Sarajahists.

      How many months has Haftar been leading its final and decisive advance?

        Since the month of April. But the fact is that Haftar is Libyan. On this basis, he does not want to destroy the city and port infrastructure, as well as shed excess blood of his fellow citizens, since this will play against him. If Haftar was a classic mattress, then it would act like the Americans in Raqqa and Mosul, turning these cities into a lunar landscape and the PNS would cease its activity in June.

            Why he? Most likely, the UN, recognizing this structure (PNS) and splitting Libya into two camps. In general, the fault is the mattresses that organized the murder of Gaddafi. It was a normal country.

              So the PNS created their organization before Haftar, and held nationwide elections.
              Well, Haftar took part in conspiracies against Gaddafi even before it became mainstream, actively collaborated with the CIA and lived in the United States.

                This is known, but at present, Haftar is drowning for the elimination of the PNS and the holding of new elections in Libya, which, incidentally, he is not going to run for, but is not against promoting one of Gaddafi’s offspring. Apparently the old man understood what the overthrow of Gaddafi and the game of democracy turned out to be for his country repenting.

                    There is no contradiction. Haftar against the puppet government, which under the auspices of the UN drowns in the corridor of US and British interests to the detriment of the restoration of Libyan statehood without doing anything to restore national unity. Saraji is imprisoned to hold oil fields and port terminals. The scenario of the partition of Libya on the model of Sudan, Haftar does not suit.

                        Well, let’s say that yes, Sarajah does not fly, since everything is adjusted to him in order to ensure the interests of third countries that love oil very much. So Edik Turkish fussed. Haftar, in this regard, is in a worse situation and in order to get "nishtyaki" he needs to 1) substantiate, 2) convince, 3) demonstrate, and then receive. Considering that he is being given help and support, he is fine with all three points, but Saraji, with full support from outside, is not doing so well, and besides a few of the indicated cities and deposits, he does not control anything in Libya . I think that you and I will remain anyway, each with our own opinion, and therefore it probably makes sense to wait for a while, which is indicated at 72 hours. Well, then it will be seen who is wrong. hi

                        For each of these “guys” there are certain forces that have their own interests, and therefore it must be kept in mind that not these “guys” are fighting among themselves, but those who are behind them. Considering that when Haftar attacked Tripoli, the Americans boarded the ships and left Libya, they are not very confident in the forces of Sarajah, although they support him not only with weapons, but also with the NATO military, as evidenced by the fact that a couple of months back, the Haftarovites shot down a PNS plane and captured a pilot who for some reason turned out to be not a Libyan at all, but a Belgian and not even a pensioner. I’m more interested in why suddenly, Ankara decided so sharply to stand on the side of Sarajah, reinforcing her interest not only with weapons and equipment, but also with the forces of military advisers and special forces, despite the fact that there’s “not everything is so simple” and the main interests of the “Sarajists” are not showing their military activity, limiting themselves to notes and concerns?

                        In late November, Erdogan and Al-Sarraj signed a controversial agreement on maritime borders in the Mediterranean Sea, as well as an agreement on military cooperation. Sea Border Agreement between Turkey and Libya was achieved without the consent of other Mediterranean states.
                        Turkey claims to be adjacent to the Greek island of Crete and the Dodecanese archipelago. She believes that the territories are located on its mainland shelf.

Is it because our leadership, for personal commercial reasons, decided to earn extra money by hiring mercenaries from the Saudis and Emirates? try to tell me that if our people were hired by the Qatari people on the side of the PNS, now you would not be drowned for saraj either. and your arguments would be against the Haftar of about the same level as now against the Saraj, on the level - I heard a ringing ...

          Yes, no Shura, sorry for the familiarity - Alexander. It’s most likely not that the Haftarophylls would gather, but the anti-Phobias of the Gaddafists are present unambiguously, since while you were dozing and lovingly absorbing lullabies about the bloodthirstiness of the dictator Gaddafi, some democratic forces mercilessly drove one of the most prosperous and secular "countries of the African continent" where banditry and human trafficking flourish today.

          Tyuyu, why should I try to lie to you? To lie at all is the last thing, especially when everything is in sight. You remember that the bombing of Libya was supported by your idol SAM DAM, who was entrusted with guarding the president’s throne for 4 years. The fact that as a result of this "support" Russia lost about $ 10 billion of a "pissing" trifle compared with what, as you write, the Saudis and emirates offered us for mercenarism. Probably a whole billion given? laughing It’s a sin to refuse such a “profitable” transaction of 1 billion “income”, against 10 billion losses !!! As much as 9 billion cat tail, a sin not to resist the temptation !!! Just because Russia was supposed to build and modernize the existing railways in Libya, it lost 3 billion forever green dollars. What are you talking about? Personally, my acquaintance was supposed to go to Libya under a railway contract (second time), but due to the fact that hostilities began and contract work was curtailed, he did not go.

            yes, and how does combating the killing of Gaddafi and anti-Americans combine with Haftar? you would at least look into the biography of the old man. you, as in a joke, either remove the cross or put on your pants. I don’t blame you for drowning him, it’s strange for me to think so thoughtlessly, neither with my ear, nor with the snout in the situation there, but although if for money, then call, then I completely approve, interfere with this Sarajah with amnom, caliph forever and eva, etc. etc.

      In response to the Libyan "demarche" of Turkey, the UAE and Egypt governments have already declared their readiness to counteract "illegal Turkish intervention." So Haftar may have ships to sink ships. Cairo is very serious and very angry at Ankara for tricks with a section of the exclusive economic zone. Egyptian President Marshal As-Sisi is not a timid man, and the Egyptian army is larger than the Turkish and better armed.

      For comparison: in order to transfer to Libya, say, a couple of mechanized divisions with American M1A1 Abrams As-Sisi tanks must be ordered to cross the border. In response, the Turks will not be able to transport one division in a reasonable time - there will not be enough logistic opportunities. And the soldiers from the Turks and Egyptians are about equally bad. So, if a collision occurs, one cannot leave for Ankara class.

        Well, actually, neighboring Algeria and Tunisia are in no way interested in the occupation of Libya by Egypt and they will not be able to move across the border in tanks either. Moreover, everyone understands that KSA and UAE are behind Egypt, and these friends in their pursuit of hegemony in the Arab world are not particularly supported by the Maghribes.

    There are clan wars and clashes between various terrorist groups.

    1. Would unite Libya under autocracy.
    2. Took control of Libyan oil and gas.
    3. He drove out, and it would be better, he destroyed the “Muslim brothers,” Ishilov’s, Alkaeda, and pro-Turkish illegal armed groups.
    4. And in this situation - liquidated all investments of Europeans, Americans, Turks, Qatari and Saudis
    in this long-term mess.
    5. For what it is necessary and inevitable: to enlist military-technical cooperation with Russia, including the provision of a naval base and air base, as well as with the PRC to finance economic recovery, and the expulsion of the dollar from Africa.

    The PNS will request military assistance from Turkey ... this is "an attempt by a drowning man to grab onto a straw."
    Obviously the way it is. If Havt (a) p gives 72 hours, then obviously he knows the full balance of power and understands the lack of the ability of Turkey to provide effective assistance to the PNS in three days.
    PS For some reason, the Havt (a) r is automatically replaced by the Havtor?
