Erdogan announced the entry of the Turkish army into Libya

Turkish military units entered Libya. This was officially stated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on January 5, 2020 in an interview with CNN Turk.

According to the Turkish leader, the country's armed forces are being introduced into Libyan territory to "coordinate and stability" and support the "legitimate government", which, according to the Turks, is the PNS Faiz Saraj.



The duty of our soldiers there is coordination. There they will deploy an operations center

- said Erdogan.

Earlier, on January 3, Erdogan finally approved the bill on sending the military to Libya. It was reported that units of the Turkish army will enter the country over the next two days.

The request for military assistance from Turkey by the Government of National Accord officially became known at the end of December last year, although unofficially it was requested earlier. It was also known about the supply of Turkish military equipment to units fighting on the side of the PNS.

Recall that in Libya since 2011, dual power has reigned. In the west of the country and its capital, Tripoli is run by the PNS, officially recognized by many countries. The leader of this government is Faiz Saraj.

The east of Libya is led by a temporary cabinet led by Abdullah Abdurrahman al-Thani and a parliament elected by the people. These forces are also supported by the Libyan National Army, commanded by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

        There is an agreement between Erdogan and Sarajah present. Edika over a cup of tea in exchange for military support promised to allocate a piece of Libyan oil pie, so he lost his temper. Another question is; - will the fifth point crack? - since Turkey has already drawn into Iraq and Syria, besides having graters with Kurds on its territory. Does he take a burden in strength?

          hi , Dmitry.
          Erdogan is a great adventurer, but this latest adventure will cost him dearly due to the murky "batch" in Libya. But we don't need to participate in this list (IMHO).

        A purely personal IMHO, if the Sultan is already combed in Libya, then he crawls. Spit on this UN. Let the Turks transfer their barmaley from the north of Syria - it will be calmer for ours, and it will be easier for the Syrians to clean out Idlib. Walking Turkish forces in Tripoli will take a lot of time and money - there will definitely not be a blitzkrieg.

        There were conversations, but there was no order. Even a parliamentary decision is not an order to the troops. The connection, of course, is not direct. But the feeling that now the "right of the strong" is more important than the law - many leaders can move them to sudden movements.

      In Syria, his intervention failed. Those pieces of the borderland that his people control are a trifle. He initially wanted the whole of northern Syria and the second most important and first industrial city of Syria - Aleppo. But then the evil and bad Russians flew in and ruined everything. In Syria, nothing shines on him. And here is the whole of Libya, which was once part of the Ottoman Empire. Plus a good pretext in the form of an agreement with Saraj. Plus a potential prize in the form of Libyan oil.
      From a military point of view, the Turkish army with Syrian barmels is certainly stronger than Haftar. And even the UAE army can not cope with the Turks. But if Egypt officially enters Libya, that’s another matter. That noble batch will then begin. fellow

    Erdogan supports Saraj for three reasons: ideological (greetings to his native Muslim Brothers, his flesh and blood), energy (it was with the help of Saraj that he achieved the signing of an agreement on the division of maritime zones of jurisdiction), and economic (historically, Turkish companies almost totally dominate the construction sector of the Libyan economy) .In addition, Erdogan understands that Idlib terrorist scum (at least his relatives Turkomans) must be saved, Russia will not give them further life, in Turkey he doesn’t need “native” militants either and in Libya they will serve the holy cause of strengthening the greatness of Turkey (at the same time they will earn money). Therefore, in the form of "Turkish troops" in Libya will be fighting groups of Idlib Turkomans, who currently number from 150 to 600 bayonets in Tripoli according to different informants.

He not only supported Armenia, (the vile Iranian policy aimed at suppressing Azerbaijani Turks in Iran, and creating as many problems as possible to northern Azerbaijan) but actually ordered the Azerbaijani ship, which conducted geological exploration in the southern part of the Caspian, to shoot its territorial waters. Then Iran claimed these waters after the collapse of the USSR. Everyone remembers that incident. In those days, Turkey sent its military aircraft, supported us, flew over the Caspian, showing them that we are not alone ..

      In general, since the summer offensive, Haftar near Tripoli had no success. This is a bell. If Egypt does not intervene openly or with tourist BTG, then Haftar has sour prospects. Most likely, it will be necessary to divide the country into the Benghazian and Tripoletan between Sirte and Ben Javat.
