Marshal Haftar army accused of new attempt to take Tripoli

Marshal Haftar army accused of new attempt to take Tripoli

From Libya, reports came of another attempt by Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s forces to take control of the country's capital, Tripoli. Recall that a few days earlier, one of the Haftar army generals said that they control "already 99 percent of the territory of Libya." In the government of the country, headed by Fayez Sarraj, these words were called "extremely far from reality."


Turkish media report that Haftar’s troops attempted an offensive in the south of Tripoli. Previously, they dealt an artillery strike on the fortifications of the government troops of the country. At the same time, it is alleged on Turkish channels that the shelling was conducted randomly, “and therefore civilians suffered.”

The Sarraj government said that Haftar’s forces allegedly fired on schools and other civilian objects.

Press Service of the Ministry of Health of Libya:

As a result of the blow inflicted on the Old City in the center of Tripoli, a civilian was injured.

According to other sources, two were injured: a woman and her child.

At the same time, the administration of Sarraj says that "the attempt to attack Haftar failed."

European media write that Marshal Haftar’s units launched a missile strike, "damaging cultural heritage sites dating back to the 6th century BC." It is strange that when Tripoli bombed NATO aircraft, nobody in the media of the European Union recalled objects of cultural heritage.

Meanwhile, near Haftar, they say that Turkey continues to transfer its mercenaries and special operations forces to Tripoli, which violates the current armistice agreements.

          Haftar House in Vienna - Virginia. If he had appeared under Gaddafi, not even in Libya, but in Mali, Tunisia or Egypt. They would try to steal it and deliver it to Gaddafi. Well, then boil in parts in acid, cut into small parts and other fun.

            However, since then, times and circumstances have changed a lot. Not so long ago in Libya there was a gangway of 300 tribal elders who expressed their support for Haftaru and sent an appeal to the UN so that it would withdraw its decision in support of the government of national consent of Sarajah, thereby confirming the marshal's legitimacy. Marshal, a little earlier, made it clear that he was not going to become the headpan of all Libya and his goal was to restore the territorial integrity of Libya under the leadership of which the leader would be elected by popular vote, while Gaddafi’s son Seif was considered as a candidate for the leader (as an alternative, Aisha’s daughter) who can win the election due to the fact that the Libyan people have choked on democracy and with nostalgia recalls the time of the "tyrant" Gaddafi.
            PS- It seems that the capture of Tripoli by Haftar forces directly depends on the sanity or insanity of Erdogan’s policies and is likely to be decided in parallel with the beginning of the aggravation of the situation in Idlib.

          Haftar has US citizenship, he lived there quietly for 20 years, until the mess with Gaddafi began. So where his real home is still unknown

              So far, Seryozha, he comes in handy for his country a little.
              Although one feature of my past, Haftar is attractive to me - he was a student of the Higher Officer Courses in Moscow.
              But, apparently, it was unimportant with academic performance, he skipped a lot ... wink

        You can understand the Sultan: 1) he sleeps and sees: "Great Osmania" 2) he has already invested so much in Sarajah that he will support him until the last. He knows well that if Haftar defeats, then all his contributions will go down the drain.

    Now only strength, a firm hand and decisive action can restore order. Give the slack-devour immediately. Polaki already cast fishing rods on Kaliningrad. While in the local newspaper, but then for punching the soil. And what is democracy, equality and freedom in European we already see: the Schengen is destroyed, the tourists are actually hostages, each for himself.

      It is necessary, it is necessary. But so far it’s not coming out. There are already Syrians and regulars of the Turks. The real chance was last summer. But they could not provide a general offensive. Out of breath. Overslept counterattack. And rolled back to about today's position.

        The inhabitants of Tripoli will sit for a couple of months without money from the oil trade, and they themselves will expel the Turks, along with the greens. Sooner or later, someone will get tired of keeping this zoo. laughing

      Well, his ambitions also do not go very far. If it weren’t for the money of the gullers, UAE equipment, Sudanese, UAE military specialists, Egyptian military experts, equipment from Egypt storage bases, then Haftar would still be sitting at Benghazi.


      Of course, this help will have to give something else after the victory. The only thing, the UAE / Egypt now does not have the strength / desire / ability to squeeze the Tripoletans. Therefore, the quick victory goes into the long run. And then in Yemen 2.0.

              After the victory, however.

              Well, in fact:
              LNA wins - the Gulf and Egypt receive contracts and dividends.
              STA wins - Turkey gets all the goodies.

              But for the STA to defeat or drive Haftar to Benghazi, returning most of the production, much more Turkish participation is needed. Now is the equilibrium point. LNA can not squeeze. STA can effectively defend and smash small groups, but they can’t do a decisive victory near Tripoli now. It takes a lot more power.

                Well yes. After victory lol . Haftar does nothing because time is on his side. Why climb an urban meat grinder if it already in fact controls the air over Tripoli and shoots the entire city? Not so long ago, Turkish air defense was crushed during a raid on an airport. No one will give a serious concentration of forces for an offensive to the Turks in Tripoli. Do you think Erdogan’s sponsors are complete and will continue to spend money on these bankrupt? IMHO, if Haftar really starts an offensive, then simultaneously with the SA in Idlib.
                STA wins - Turkey gets all the goodies.

                You would think that the Turks are fighting there on their own laughing .

            I heard in an analytical program that the oil sold by Haftar and the buyer’s payment in the form of money flow to banks in Tripoli. That is, for officially sold oil from Libya, from Benghazi, for example, money comes to Saraj. And Tripoli, in turn, pays money to state employees in the form of salaries, throughout Libya, in Begnazi, for example, too. This is due to the fact that Tripoli is recognized as the official center of power. A havtor can only not officially sell oil, since he does not have the authority as an official to the UN.

              Tripoli has not been selling anything for a long time. Oil supplies are completely shut off by Haftar and the tribes that control the fields.
