Air strike at military school in Libya


On the night of Saturday to Sunday, an airstrike was inflicted on a military school in Tripoli. The city, like the western part of the country, is controlled by the Government of National Accord, officially recognized by the UN, under the leadership of Fayez Sarraj.


According to the Ministry of Health, as a result of an air raid on a school located in the Al-Hadba al-Hadra region of the Libyan capital, at least 28 people died and several dozens were injured. The number of deaths may increase, as the data are preliminary. Most victims are cadets. According to the Ministry, during the strike they gathered for construction, after which they had to go to the hostel.

Allegedly, the air force of the Libyan National Army, commanded by Khalifa Haftar, fired. But neither the LAA, nor any other forces have so far claimed responsibility for the airstrike.

Today, Libya is split into two warring parts. In the West, as mentioned earlier, power belongs to the Government of National Accord. The east of the country is governed by parliament - the House of Representatives. On the side of parliament is the Libyan National Army of Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

        If Haftar had hit, he would have said so directly.
        Haftar is a straightforward person.
        So it can only be those who seek to rekindle the flames of global war.
        After the assassination of an Iranian general, the United States comes under suspicion first
        Then it is explained why at night - the silhouettes of American planes are different from Haftar

      Why Israel? A military school is a military facility. And in a warring country the blow to it was predictable. How are the VU barracks different from the barracks of a military unit?

        I completely agree, but in the article it is presented almost as a terrorist attack:

          Just because no one took the blow? But it seems to me that there’s a mess. Everyone is fighting against everyone. Could they have hit the government forces by mistake, could Haftar’s forces not warning anyone to strike? We’ll find out soon. The Middle East is heating up at a frantic speed

            could Haftar’s forces not warning anyone to strike?
            And whom should they warn? There is a war going on, Haftar announced mobilization, and he declared Jihad for Turkey. At the same time, a blow to the military school was hit at the airport - several Turkish drones were destroyed, and several Turkish soldiers were killed.

      Hmm, what is Israel’s interest in bombing a military school under the control of the PNS if Israel itself is blowing more towards the support of Saraja, who is the leader of the PNS? Perhaps those who did not like the “teaching staff” of instructors and advisers represented in the school from some NATO countries were fried at the school? So to say "hello from Suleymani." It seems so that Israel is, as it were, not quite in the subject.

    We play for the Havtor’s team and at the same time as the legitimate government didn’t quarrel completely.

      Local. These are the guys.



      It is rather a minus. This is something like Suvorovsky, which was reprofiled into a full-fledged school already with the beginning of the Civil War.

      Haftar writes that the building was used as a base for the quarters of Turkish militants and officers. The PNS has already written to the UN about the crime of another Haftar, who killed children for a morning breakfast.

        Haftar is insane. I regret that there are his sympathizers. The strike, they say, was done by Saudi aviation. The bombardment of the Cadets will not be justified in any way.

          And how sound are the Americans who participated in Operation Allied Force to bomb Yugoslavia? 2000 dead, injured over 7000 people. On April 12, 1999, a Serbian passenger train was destroyed by a NATO F-15 plane during the bombing of a railway bridge in the Grdelitsa region. As a result, 14 civilians, including women and children, died and 16 were injured. Double standarts?

              I do not have relatives or friends among them; there is no one to root for. Saying that the Hawtor is insane, I understand that your preferences are given to the other side, and those apparently use weapons differently. There is a war, the barracks of a military school. Does anyone care that it is the cadets or the woods that cut the woods fly? Would the other side have the opportunity to strike, would they not use it?

                  Have you seen approval in my words somewhere? I'm generally sure that killing your own kind is unnatural. But here we are, and they there believe that the good should kill the bad. As in the Donbass, in six years, 3.3 thousand civilians died, including children ...

          First of all, the insane Americans who entered Libya in order to destroy Gaddafi. If this had not happened, would Libya today be the most prosperous country in Africa, and where would all these Haftars and Sarajis be now? And now, yes, Haftar wants to unite Libya under one principle and restore Libyan statehood by removing the puppet government of Sarajah from power.

      The Libyans then appreciated Gaddafi. Here are some who did not like the fact that Gaddafi is respected among his people and without any democratic reforms. He simply did not feed the Europeans from the pot of a simple Libyan.

          The first came from non-Russian sources. To not be accused of Russian propaganda.
          Contacts between the Israelis and Haftar began, according to analyst Giorgio Kafiero of the Gulf State Analytics consulting company in Washington, mediated by the UAE back in 2015. Haftar’s support promised the Jewish state to strengthen ties with Egypt and the UAE, and later with Saudi Arabia. Finding agreement with Sunni states that shared Israel’s fears about the threats posed by Iran and Hezbollah, as well as Sunni jihadists, was a clear success for Israel.

          Do not forget about the beneficial business for the Israelis associated with the sale of weapons to Haftar soldiers. Another factor is related to the search for allies with considerable mineral resources. Thus, the goals of Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Haftar in many ways, including in terms of the fight against terrorists in the Sinai, coincided.

          Haftar’s first meeting with Mossad’s agents was held in the strictest secrecy in Jordan. It was possible to agree on the sale of sniper rifles and night vision devices for LNA. Later, in agreement with Haftar, the Israelis carried out air raids against the enemies of the LNA. It came to the point that Algeria warned Haftar about the inadmissibility of receiving such assistance from Israel. Then several more meetings took place between the commander-in-chief of the LNA and the Israelis in Amman and Cairo. According to Al-Arabi al-Jadid, the parties agreed on an Israeli presence in southern Libya in order to upset Italy’s plans to extend its influence to the southern Fezzan region.

    The UN recognizes any government pleasing to the United States.
    Just recall the war in Korea, where the UN Security Council recognized Pyongyang as an aggressor and called on all UN member states to help South Korea. In addition to the United States, England, Turkey, Belgium, Greece, Colombia, India, the Philippines and Thailand sent their troops to Korea. - In total, representatives of 16 states fought in the UN forces.
