Turkey moves radicals from Syria to Libya to fight Marshal Haftar


Some militants who previously fought in Syria and were sent by Turkey to Libya are associated with the Islamic groups "Islamic State" and "Al Qaeda" banned in Russia (banned in the Russian Federation). They are sent to fight against the army of Marshal Khalifa Haftar on the side of the Libyan National Accord Government recognized by the UN under the leadership of Fayez Saraj.


Associated Press was told about this by sources related to the command of pro-government armed groups in Tripoli. They claim that among the approximately four thousand mercenaries sent by Turkey from Syria to Libya, there are several dozen militants who are in any way connected with the aforementioned terrorist organizations.

This information is also confirmed by sources related to opposition forces in Syria. They claim that at least 130 extremists who were transported by Turks to Libya were formerly members of the al-Qaeda and Islamic State armed groups.

One government official in Tripoli said that Syrian radicals began to appear in Libya since last August. Initially, they helped Turkish military instructors, but now the newly arrived mercenaries from Syria themselves are participating in military operations.

          He doesn’t even have two fronts ... Kurds are also preparing a present for him.

      Erdogan did not hide this. Turkey promised every $ 1000 a month to every bearded man who agreed to fight in Libya, which created a conflict among the bearded remaining in Syria to rest on Turkish interests, since this recruiting draws the forces necessary to protect the Idlib province. In Libya, Haftar’s forces have already caught a few of these “volunteers” who have been given the floor by the public and due to the rank of an armful of Lyuli, to influence potential job seekers vacated.

      Not yet. On the contrary, he advanced army units to the front in order to stop the advance of the SAR forces. If our VKS and MTR openly worked on illegal armed groups of Idlib groups, then it is not clear what strategy we will choose to squeeze out Turkish troops.

        So much has already been written about this - the posts of the Turks simply bypass, leaving them in their rear, and warning in advance that we will pass at such a time, do not shoot, we will not either. As a result, the Turks, after the relevant agreements, move to another line.

      Erdogan can do nothing, militants flee to Turkey from Idlib.
      In Turkey, the Sultan does not need them, he sends them to Libya, it’s easier there now than in Idlib.

          Putin could not "point out" Erdogan, the head of the independent state of Turkey. Putin "strongly recommended stopping the supply of militants to Libya."
          I expect that in support of the issued “recommendation”, serious support will be provided for the actions of the Syrian government Army in Idlib.

      hi
      We were invited there and the PMC unit works there, but mainly Libya is Macron’s “smut”. But if Turkey breaks in with the grace of a hippo and the interests of two NATO members collide, then this will be that song. In Libya, there is something to make a "face" - huge reserves of light oil, but everyone wants it.

      We also have interests in Libya, Haftar often traveled to Moscow over the past couple of years and met with Shoigu and senior management, and apparently some piece of the pie called Libya was promised to us, or rather, our oil companies, the development of deposits. Therefore, he will not receive the Hero of Russia for such a transfer of militants to Libya .... in general, the Sultan wants to take control of Syria and Libya together, and the fact that he will not let the militants crush in Idlib is clear that they are being guarded by the Turkish Armed Forces in response to CAA attacks on the militants. How it all ends is not clear ....

      Turkey seems to have decided to become the main pillar of the Islamic radical groups of various stripes in the region.


      They, like us, are the Empire. They have their own old culture, their own customs and their own struggle. A worthy enemy, not a dull tribe. In the Middle East, Ottomans play their game. There would be no Russia, Turkey would have brought out a schucher. Erdogan chose the right tactics. Collaboration. And that is glorious. Enough with the Turks chopping and weakening each other for the fun of the Saxons. They have their own worldview, different from ours - grouping is their lever. It has always been so and it will be so. They will always have their own interests and they will intersect with ours, the planet is not huge.

      “We are friends with Russia. Russia recognized us and our national rights before all and showed respect to us. Under these conditions, both today (October 1922) and tomorrow, and always, Russia can be sure of friendship with Turkey. ”,

      “We, the two peoples whom the sultans and kings dragged into endless wars that are beneficial to imperialism, must constantly live in friendship”, - from the speech of the President of Turkey Ataturk in the Soviet embassy in 1923.

      Another quote from one of the revered people at Ottoman
      “We must not depart from each other. This is my firm conviction and my testament to future generations. "

      In 1936, after the conclusion of the new Convention on the Straits (Bosphorus and Dardanelles) in Montreux, Atatürk said in the Majlis: “I must with exceptional satisfaction recall that our friendship with the USSR, our great sea and land neighbor, having proved its merits for 15 years, continues to develop normally with the same strength and with the same sincerity as in the first days of its occurrence ".

    The fact that the Turks with the barmales in Syria flirted is no secret.
    Then, as their fuel caravans began to wet, they calmed down immediately. But not for long.

    Interestingly, in Libya, the Turkish sultan is looking for what is his interest? Oil? So the water will be exactly the same.
