The challenge of Turkey is accepted. Marshal Haftar announced mobilization in Libya

Field Marshal H. Haftar declared jihad and mobilization in Libya, whose goal is to fight against foreign troops.


This refers, of course, to the Turkish troops. According to Mr. Haftar, the Turkish president seeks to revive the "Ottoman heritage", including in Libya.

Recall that Khalifa Haftar is currently commanding the Libyan National Army.

The other day, the Turkish parliament gave the green light to sending troops to Libya. This was the reason for the announcement of mobilization. “We accept the challenge,” Al-Arabiya quoted Marshal Haftar as saying. According to him, the upcoming fight will be directed against foreign troops, anyone who just sneaks into Libya.

Marshal admits that Turkish President Erdogan, prone to a policy of "Ottoman" revival, leads his own army "to death."

Jihad announcement means now weapon everyone will receive, including civilians, including women.

The situation in Libya, we note, is complicated. It’s hardly necessary to talk about general mobilization, since Haftar’s power does not extend to the whole country: the “other” Libya at the end of December just turned to Ankara for military assistance, and on this basis, the Turkish parliament urgently considered a bill to send troops to Libya. The document was quickly approved by the parliamentary majority.

Probably, to begin with, Ankara will send specialists to Libya to train local military personnel serving in the army of the Government of National Accord. It is possible that Ankara will also begin the supply of arms of Tripoli.

    How can you smash the MOST successful country in Africa? Declare its leader as a dictator and “feed” the shallow grass-hungry people ... And now anyone who imagines himself as Sultan Suleiman can send troops and seize oil fields and something else ...

      In vain he is.
      It was polite to appeal to all foreign states through the media with a request not to send in their troops, but to help with diplomatic methods. Not specifically focusing on Turkey.
      It is clear that the Turks would not pay attention to this (but they will not pay attention to his current threats either).
      But then, when the troops enter, try to make their life as uncomfortable as possible - partisanism, media coverage of their crimes, etc. (that is, what he was going to do), while constantly appealing through the media with a polite request to leave the country.

      Well, not everyone can send. Erdogan seems to have made up his mind. Other sultans are still cautious, because it is not enough to seize the oil fields - they also need to be restrained and production must be organized with delivery, and this is quite risky in the conditions of the civil war. repeat

      That is precisely why it was possible and necessary. Why do we need successful competitors? Yes, and with ambition? But now everything is fine - instead of a successful influential country, a territory with gangs of democrats fighting for fragments and slave markets. Now the regional powers can divide or occupy it. Something Egypt, something Turkey. And there you look and Algeria wakes up. request

      So yes, Vika says he is still Field Marshal
      Khalifa Belkasim Haftar (Arabic: خليفة بالقاسم حفتر; born 1943, Ajdabiya, Libya) - Libyan military leader. House of Representatives of Libya appointed field marshal (2016) and the supreme commander of the Libyan National Army.

      In the Arab countries there is neither a marshal nor a field marshal. There is the title "Mushir", which is equivalently translated into both of these options.

    In fact, this is more of a statement to the media.

    All who are really capable of + up to 2000 UAE Sudanese Sudanese are already under arms.
    Distribution of weapons to everyone, there can play a minus. Especially in central and southern Libya - where Haftar holds territories rightfully strong. He has only a loyal east of the country and then in Benghazi the Islamist cells are still active and sometimes carry out strong attacks on convoys.

    His main problem is a positional dead end. From the epic summer offensive in Tripoli, until today there are no particular successes. Moreover, the PNS even improved its position somewhat. Now Ahrar and other women have already been transferred to the PNS with experience, albeit with light weapons. Further more.

    That is, in the future, it is more likely that the PNS will try to solve the positional impasse to its advantage by accumulating forces. Plus with the Turks, landings along the coastal route and policies are possible.

    In Haftar’s favor, a conflict can be resolved only by putting the forces of another state on vacation or officially. But at least 2-3 BTGs on equipment with any kind of aviation cover.

    Well, I don’t understand Algeria (maybe the actions of the new authorities?): Gaddafi supported. A series of terrorist attacks was carried out by Islamists supported by the PNS.
    And as a "neighbor," Haftar is MUCH better than gangs of "field commanders."

      Algeria is now for cooperation with Turkey and it supports the PNS as the only legitimate authority in Libya.

      For the first time in many years, Turkey and Algeria will conduct naval military exercises in the central Mediterranean (just in the Libyan region, by the way). Algeria 2 frigates and Turkey 2 frigates.
      TCG GÖKSU and TCG GÖKOVA are already gone. It is unclear who Algeria will expose.

      Also, Turkey and Algeria concluded a lot of agreements on the weakening of all regimes between countries (visa, trade, etc.)

      Arab news writes that Erdogan is trying to court Algeria to participate:
      Erdogan in bid to drag Algeria into Libyan war

      With regional tensions simmering in the eastern Mediterranean, experts have drawn attention to the timing and objectives of the move considering Algeria neighbors war-torn Libya from the east.

      The exercise not only coincides with the 500th year of commemoration of Oruc Reis, an Ottoman governor in North Africa who discovered the island of Djerba in Tunisia, but also Ankara's surprise introduction of visa-free travel for Algerians.

      The two frigates are expected to be forwarded between Jan. 7 and 10. During the dispatch, Algerian naval forces will also receive training from their Turkish counterparts.

      The Tunisian presidency recently denied claims that the country would join an alliance with Turkey and Algeria in resolving the Libyan crisis.

        Yes, it’s still much easier. Algeria is on the side of those who are more likely to win.
        Despite all the militancy Haftara, his chances of winning, after connecting Turkey, approaching zero. After all, it was not in vain that he announced mobilization. Both sides of the conflict have enough weapons there. Sponsors both there and there. The problem is who to give it to. The population of Libya is only 7 million with a tail. For comparison, in Syria, 17 million. Turkey has a population of 82 million. And without any mobilization, Erdogan will be able to quantitatively block any number collected by Haftar.

    According to Ankara, Moscow’s actions in Libya and its military support for Khalifa Haftar (who once again solemnly announced the start of the “last attack on Tripoli” on December 12) openly harm all Turkish plans and the implementation of these memoranda. December 10 Recep Erdogan critically recalled his presence in Libya mercenaries from the Russian "private military company Wagner", which is no longer hidden in the midst of Haftar:

      There is nothing interesting there, except an attempt to stir up the local Selyuk, who are all deep in the light, giving the war with the external aggressor the status of "sacred".
      Jihad is a concept in Islam, meaning zeal on the path of Allah, the struggle for faith. The concept of military jihad has become the main meaning of the word for non-Muslims and has received the name "holy war" (c). Wikipedia

    It must be remembered that according to information from many sources; information was not refuted by representatives from the Foreign Ministry and other structures that our compatriots from the PMC are in Libya and other regions of the Middle East. I want to say right away to those comrades - who do not care about the citizens of Russia and the citizens of the DPR who are there as part of PMC divisions (These are "rays of information breaking through the darkness" that do not refute the institutions of power of the Russian Federation.); many of our compatriots are part of PMCs there not because of a good life in the Russian Federation, not because of a good life in other regions of the post-Soviet space; bureaucrats serving in government institutions should remember that if ours are thrown there, and there are enough examples in the newest anti-human doctrine, based on the "Old Testament concepts", there are enough examples, then revenge, revolution was made by those who survived after the "treacherous meat grinder". Be afraid ...
    We - the society must remember this. The Government of the Russian Federation, if you sent our compatriots there, you must do everything that depends on you, which depends on salvation, on helping our people. Your children do not go there from a good life. Today, if you throw people from PMCs, tomorrow the personnel army ...

      And yet, I want to clarify; Erdogan personally, as the media report, reported on the information that there are Russian mercenaries in Libya defending the interests of the political forces against which Turkey is opposed. Russian mercenaries defend the interests of the "Kremlin institutions". Gentlemen, generals and other politicians who are the protégé of projects like PMC Wagner and others, everything suits you. Indeed, for the death of a mercenary, it’s sometimes said with disdain that you don’t have to pay lifelong pensions to widows, you don’t need to help children, that means the treasury will not be empty. Yes, there are scumbags, but most of the people there are normal people, the "just" concepts of the modern World are such that a person is a commodity. And if they with their lives “protect the treasury of Russia from ruin” - the military budget (pension reform for the regular army), and so that you do not blush, letting snot out in front of the widows of the regular military, then do not throw men. This, too, is a mirror of our society.

    Deeply erroneous assessment. Haftar is a figure, not the only acting force. In Libya, there is a clash of many states, and not just head-on-head confrontation between units directly subordinate to him, and the Turkish contingent.

    Moreover, with all the high-profile statements made by Erdogan, Turkey is in no hurry to send troops.

      The comments in support of the intervention, actually another Turkish aggression in Libya, are very surprising.
      This is how long since Turkey’s Russia was a friendly country, it’s just a temporary “ally”, moreover, a very, very dubious one. Which just a year ago was the main enemy and collaborator of terrorists, fighting on all fronts against Russia, and continues to do the same thing - everywhere, in Syria (fighting against Assad, no need to tell, I think that Assad supports exactly Russia), Turkey’s policies until they still simply openly claim in Russia, including the Crimea, they have no desire for it - they want to revive the great Ottoman empire, they are eager to fight against Haftar in Libya, it may remind you that it is Haftar that Russia supports. And the economic benefits in cooperation with Turkey are extremely doubtful for Russia, what are these benefits? In the construction of a nuclear power plant in southern Turkey by Russia, can you recall who pays for this entire banquet of tens of billions? Or we have great benefit from the fact that Russian tourists export billions from the country, raising the economy of Turkey. What is the benefit of the gas hub built in Turkey with Russian money where they will sell Russian gas to the Turks for a penny and the Turks will remove all profits from the resale. And yes, I completely forgot about the sold S-400 complex, maybe you can remind who we sold it to - a country located in NATO, which by the way is not going to leave there, and who will benefit from this complex in case of conflict with NATO, is very large question

          Do not be nonsense and do not misinform people - Russia is not satisfied in any way with Turkish military intervention in Libyan affairs. You are aware that the leader of the terrorist PNS of Libya, Sarraj, has close ties with the militants of the IS, Al-Qaida and Muslim Brotherhood groups banned in Russia, namely he is asking for support from Ankara. The Turkish president naturally did not hesitate and agreed to help, not disinterestedly of course, but in exchange for the use and development of all gas and oil fields. Turkey has long been supplying terrorists to the PNS with jihadists from Syria. Ankara is transferring Syrian fighters and terrorists from the “Islamic State” and “Jebhat al-Nusra” through the Tunisian airport; militants arrive from the airport in the cities of Misurata, Mitig and Zuvara, captured by the so-called Libyan PNS. In addition to supplying militants by air, Turkey also assists terrorists by delivering equipment and weapons to ships. This is not the first time Ankara has violated the UN arms embargo. Only 12 UN member states recognize the so-called “Government” of Sarraj, and there is no Russia there! The Libyan National Army, under the command of Haftar, conducts the counter-terrorist operation Al-Karama, designed to free the African republic from militants and Islamists. Russia supports Haftar more and because it was he who guaranteed to pay all the old debts of Libya and to adhere to all previously existing agreements with Russia!

    After all, Turkey’s actions are understandable, the war is a good reason for distraction, as the head is bad, the lyre is flying down, there are no allies, business in the country is dissatisfied, all the army men who did not bow to the "great" leader are killed or sitting, thousands of landings and massacres.

    Reduce, in short, the message:
    "The Libyan parliament, recognized by the international community, voted to cancel the agreement on the introduction of Turkish troops into the country. This was reported by Al Arabiya."

    "The parliament has also called for an end to relations with Turkey and the closure of embassies to counter interference in Libyan affairs. The head of the parliamentary defense committee has demanded that Fayez al-Sarraj, the head of the internationally recognized government of national accord (PNS) in Libya, be accused of treason."

    "It is noted that Tripoli asked the UN Security Council to hold an emergency meeting and prevent the intervention of Ankara, as well as cancel the agreement between her and al-Sarraj."

    We will continue to observe. Let's see if this is confirmed in other media?
