Libyan fleet seizes tanker with oil products from the UAE destined for the Haftar army

28

From Libya, there are reports of the seizure of a tanker with oil products, which was coming from the United Arab Emirates. According to recent reports, oil products were intended for the forces of Marshal Khalifa Haftar, who continues to make attempts to capture the capital of Libya - Tripoli. The tanker went to Libya under the flag of Liberia.


It is known that the tanker was taken under control by forces that act on behalf of Fayez Sarraj, who calls himself the only legitimate head of the Libyan government. This government is currently recognized by the United Nations.

He commanded the operation to "intercept" the tanker Reed Isa, the commander of the naval forces of the Sarraj government.

According to some reports, Turkish special forces, which have recently been actively deployed to Libya, were also involved in the operation. Earlier, one of the Libyan army generals controlled by Khalifa Haftaru accused Ankara of transferring not only special operations forces, but also militants - numbering about 5 thousand people.

It is reported that oil products, including fuel oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, were delivered to Benghazi terminals, from where they fell into the possession of the Haftar army.

Libyan National Petroleum Administration:

Such imports of petroleum products were illegal. Only our organization has the right to import hydrocarbons into Libya. That is why the traffic of oil products carried out by the Gulf Petroleum 4 tanker was suppressed.

      Ataturk’s military laurels haunt Erdogan.

      But only Mustafa Kemal personally He fought in Libya during the war of 1911-12, and the war ended, for both warring parties, too, very ambiguously ...

      More dough is received not by the one who extracts, but by the one who processes. As I understand it from Libya, "raw materials" are taken out, and the processing plants there were destroyed in the democratic bombardment in the first place.

        In Tripoli, more than 30 (tired of counting) Islamic organizations. And all together, the LEGAL Government.
        One hijacked a tanker, and the other will sell products, for example, to Tunisia. There is one that deals ONLY with oil smuggling to Tunisia.
        And the capture was carried out by the Turks, before their appearance, the so-called Libyan fleet did not rock the boat.

          Very likely. Perhaps they didn’t carry out the seizure but contributed information, they helped to track this tanker there.

      Iran was not taken for example, it is the largest oil exporter, but until recently there was an importer of gasoline. Explosive Growth in the number of cars the country could not provide with gasoline, and sanctions did not allow the purchase of equipment for processing. The result was the creation of its equipment and the transformation from an importer into a major exporter in OPEC. Glory to sanctions, weapons of id.otov

      Since the UN recognizes the government of Saraj, it automatically means that it has the right to stop smuggling. According to the UN, he is not a pirate.

      Extremely ridiculous and illiterate comment.
      Oil products are not oil, but products of its processing.
      Haftru was not carrying oil, he did not need it, but fuel and fuel and lubricants. But he simply does not have the appropriate infrastructure to process oil.
      And here, judging by your commentary, is there also complete devastation of everything?
      We are also an oil country, and also constantly import petroleum products. yes And NATO has nothing to do with it. Simply, Russia, having a strong production of hydrocarbons, does not have sufficient capacities for their processing. And we have to purchase from other countries such items as gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, oil, fuel, lubricants, and much more, which is called petroleum products.

            aren't local oil campaigns interested in producing and selling by themselves? Especially against the backdrop of any sanctions since 2008. For 12 years, they could have done something.

    Without a doubt. And "according to some information" it is necessary to write about the Navy and satellites of other countries. One of the fronts of the "oil war". Interestingly, Russia will leave Libya under the threat of the US embargo on oil from Russia, and military pressure from Turkey.

    Haftar will be unpleasant without fuel. The technique will stop, and the offensive will fail. So, he seems to have stopped the offensive "for humanitarian reasons"?

      Minus one tanker havtoru. But another "friend" of Edik in the person of the UAE. He loves to collect enemies. We are waiting for new deliveries of shells to the Havtor from the Emirates, dough and special forces. I think the next tanker will go under guard and with PMC escort, that's all

        So the UAE and Erdogan have been on their knives since the time of the Qatar crisis. When Turkey sent troops to Qatar, foiling plans to roll out the latter by the Saudis and the UAE in a short military operation. Now Qatar has the largest Turkish foreign base.

        Haftar already has Shell. There are shock UAVs abruptly Anki. There are armored cars. There are fighting Sudanese, who were transferred from Yemen and recruited on the spot. There are all sorts of Javelins and adjustable Chinese artillery shells marked with export to the UAE.

      So yes, a couple of days ago there was information that a truce was concluded there in connection with the spread of the coronavirus. It turns out that the Sarajevites with the Turks violated it and chastised the fuel of the Haftarites in lawlessness. Now, in fact, the marshal has an excuse to "borrow" fuel from Saraja.

    Well, came from where you did not expect? Or Havtor decided that if he suspended hostilities "in connection with the coronavirus" (already ridiculous), then the opposing side will put aside their weapons and go to pray? Well, the Turks have recently become a plug for every barrel.
