Haftar Army General: 99 percent of the territory of Libya under our control


An unexpected statement was made by one of the Libyan National Army generals. Recall that the LNA is subordinate to Marshal Khalifa Haftar, who is conducting an armed struggle against another Libyan army, reporting to Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj. For several months now, the Haftar army has been trying to take control of the country's capital, Tripoli, but so far without success.


Against this background, the Libyan brigadier general Khalid al-Majub said that 99 percent of the territory of Libya are under the control of the LNA. According to al-Majub, Turkey is hindering the peace process in Libya, which sends controlled mercenaries and military instructors, as well as special operations forces to North Africa.

Khalid al-Majub in an interview with ANHA says that in recent years Turkey has transferred up to 5 thousand mercenaries to Libya, and also delivered weapon, ammunition, uniforms.

General:

They (Turks) supply the militants with drones, armored vehicles, shells, mortars. They send advisers here, their officers. At the same time, Erdogan's mercenaries did not join the previously announced truce.

At the same time, the Libyan brigadier general said that the Arab countries, the countries of the Middle East should influence Turkey in order to stop supporting gangs in Libyan territory - for a comprehensive ceasefire.

    General Khalid al-Majub stated that 99 percent of Libyan territory is under the control of the LNA. According to al-Majub, Turkey impedes peace process in Libya

    I think the general got a little excited about 99% of the territory.

    Turkey will leave Libya only if they are kicked out. and Marshal Haftar has opportunities for this

      It was reported that Haftar wants to help Syria drive the Barmaleis and Turks out of their territory. It would be nice if this information is correct. hi

        ,, Information has come that Haftar wants to help Syria drive the Barmaleis and Turks out of their territory. It would be nice if this information is correct. ,,

        ,, The head of the so-called Libyan national army, Khalifa Haftar, secretly visited Damascus in March to establish coordination and joint opposition to Turkey with Syria, the pan-Arab newspaper Al-Sharq al-Ausat reported. ,,

    Interesting LNA officers are dancing.
    Do they smoke something impassable or do they really control 99% of the territory of Libya?
    And 1% is the territory of the bridgehead on which Turkish troops are deployed?

      You can’t make them out there no
      I believe that Russia needs to maintain contacts with both sides of the Libyan confrontation.
      The ports are very profitable and convenient there, and oil is too easy to extract, so as not to fight for all this. Especially west (and especially London), in hysteria from our presence there.

      The camel bearers counted 99) 15-17% of the territories in the south are controlled by local tribes and are not subordinate to anyone. About 9-10% of the territories are controlled by Saraj, but there are more than half of the population of Libya. About 30% of the territory of Libya are habitable, the rest is sands. The territory of Libya is 1 km². The population
      6 678 567 people for 2018

      Yes, they normally dance, given the fact that most of Libya is semi-desert. The bulk of the population is concentrated in areas adjacent to the sea, industry and oil refining with port infrastructure are in the same place where, in fact, the forces of Sarajah have been entrenched, which Turkey supports. Given that since April 2018, Haftar has been systematically squeezing the ring around Tripoli, then his forces control, if not 99%, then 95% clearly. Recently, Haftar has reached out to Turkish ships delivering a military “humanitarian aid” for Sarajah standing on a roadstead off the coast of controlled PNS and airports in the vicinity of Tripoli, where Turkish citizens settled and all the riffraff that Erdogan throws, destroying warehouses with Turkish weapons and causing live damage power. So it is thought that the general voiced a situation very close to the real state of affairs.

      Duc would have been taken, but if you had forgotten, then no more than a month and a half ago, all parties interested in Libyan cuisine gathered in the drawing room of Angela Merkel and made a decision on a truce. By and large, there has been no active fighting since then and everything has been reduced to positional skirmishes with the destruction of any Turkish crap (4 UAVs after the ceasefire) that periodically flies into the airspace controlled by Haftar and the destruction of military assistance facilities coming from Ankara, in other words, warehouses weapons at the port and airport. There was a time when Haftar landed a drone of mattresses to the heap, but he kind of apologized and hinted that the next time it would be nice to notify the LNA about its intentions to fly in the Libyan sky.

    So drive the Turks out of the country! Beat them mercilessly, but your army has at least half of Libya under control!

      another 5 barmaley threw for disposal in Libya.

      The problem is that Erdogan does not risk anything in Syria, the barmalev there will not become less.

        Of course, of course, 5 thousand there ... five thousand here ... Europeans are already looking askance at blackmail with refugees, ours have reported a mixture of the military formations of the Barmelae from Nusra with Turkish soldiers ... Read that they have been accused of terrorism ... Home to Turkey the corpses arrived, the opposition trampled ... What is the risk? Let it continue ... PS bully

    Territory maybe 90 percent but not 99 of course. But the population is good if half. Tripoli plus Misurata used to make up half the population for sure.
    Until Misuratu is taken, there will be no success. At the time of Misurat, Gaddafi was still burnt. I could not take it.
