A transport plane was shot down south of Tripoli, some say with weapons, others say with medicines

21

From Libya, reports came of a strike on a transport aircraft. According to reports, the plane was attacked by representatives of forces controlled by Fayez Sarraj, who is called the “head of the internationally recognized government of Libya.”


The transport plane belonged to the Libyan National Army, which is commanded by Marshal Khalifa Haftar, who calls himself.

According to recent reports, the plane was shot down in the area of ​​Tarhun, located south of the country's capital, Tripoli. At the same time, each of the parties to the conflict has its own version of what the cargo board was carrying. Sarraj troops claim the plane delivered weapon and ammunition, breaking the current embargo. The Haftar side, in turn, states that there were on board the medicines and medical equipment necessary to fight a new type of coronavirus.

The fact that the plane was delivering a humanitarian load to Tripoli was announced by Ahmed Mismari, representing the Libyan National Army. According to him, the forces of Sarraj "committed a war crime by striking a plane that delivered the cargo that was so necessary to fight the epidemic to Tripoli."

Recall that the troops of Marshal Haftar are trying to take Tripoli under their control, but so far unsuccessfully for them. Sarraj’s forces oppose the LNA, with Turkish forces operating on Sarraj’s side, including, according to the Libyan National Army, Turkish special operations forces.

    Previously, everyone fought with terrorists, now with coronpuavirus. Under this wording, you can summarize any actions. Fighting the virus - stay at home. Nothing to roam.

      Good news from Chad, where (even under Gaddafi) suffered a crushing defeat of Haftar. The country's air forces defeated (under the leadership of the President of Chad) the Islamists. their neighbors.

    Not surprisingly and naturally. Each defends his innocence and tries to seek support in international organizations. And if you look at it neutrally without the support of either side, then in the war, each side tries to destroy everything that moves and flies from the enemy.

      Well yes. And even if it really was a medical load, it leads to the strengthening of the enemy.

      The plane flew to Haftar and that means ........? from Egypt or Russia. Freight from the Ruins goes to Sarraj.

        Is not a fact. Last year, two Ukrainian transporters were destroyed in Libya with a week difference. In the first case, the cargo was delivered to Haftaru, in the second to Sarajah.

          And in Iran, a woman died in a shot down plane - one of the leaders of the airline that lost its planes near Saranja. But she flew from a country supporting Haftar

        Planes do not fly from Russia to Haftar. From Egypt or the UAE. Shot down either before or during landing.

          Turkish UAV angry fired at landing. Perhaps a little fright.

        According to the Libyan news portal Al-Unvan, a Turkish-made drone was involved in the attack, which attacked a transporter with medicines and equipment designed to equip field hospitals deployed by the army as part of preventive measures to counter the spread of the new coronavirus.
        CAIRO writes that the plane is Libyan? requestIt is doubtful. TASS
        transport aircraft with ammunition for the Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

    Yesterday, Mikhail Polynkov reported that in Libya, the Wagnerites suffered losses comparable to Tsushima near Hisham two years ago. Perhaps this is somehow connected with the plane ...

      What? Did everyone drown again? And again, together with the football team from Ufa? And Polynkov from Mytishchi shone a flashlight. counting the sunken Wagnerian battleships?

        Yeah. It will crumble and rub. Normally. In February 18, you also called it a fake. And at 15 any mention of a wagner was a betrayal of the leader personally with the demand of immediate punishment. You are funny liberal Putinists ... It's a pity you just don't want to laugh with you.
        Py.Sy. Polynkov in the subject. Even very much in the subject.

          Полынков, конечно, в теме. Сам эти темы и придумывает. "Прославился" ещё на Донбассе как трепло и крыса, позывной Хрусталик. Теперь лучший друг "всепропальщиков" и "ужмытовсёзнальщиков" типа Мюридки и Гиркина. Псевдо-патриоты, одно слово.
