LNA Haftara announced the suspension of hostilities

Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar announced the cessation of hostilities in the country, but reserved the right to "respond to the attacks." This was announced by the official representative of the LNA, Major General Ahmed al-Mismari.


Speaking on the air of Al Hadath television channel, al-Mismari said that the LNA command had decided to unilaterally suspend hostilities throughout Libya. This decision was made "in response to the call of friendly countries." At the same time, the general emphasized that the LNA reserves the right to “tough respond” to terrorist attacks.

The LNA command promised within a few days to present a roadmap for the transition period, within the framework of which new government bodies will be created in accordance with the will of the people.

Within a few days, a transitional roadmap will be announced that will be headed by Field Marshal Haftar. It provides, including the adoption of a new constitutional declaration

Al-Mismari explained.

Recall that on April 27 of this year, the commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar, announced a change of power in Libya and that he takes control of the state. At the same time, Haftar invalidated the 2015 Shirat Agreement, adopted under the "pressure of the UN and Western countries", under which the Government of National Accord (PNS) Faiz Saraj was established, sitting in Tripoli.

      Maybe Haftar raped and shot, personally, his hands did not reach Gaddafi.

      He dared to betray his country for personal revenge. And here it’s just ... nothing for him.

      There is not so simple. Tobruk (second government) does not recognize Haftar's self-declaration. That is, in fact, he could not push through the statement of his government in fact.

      Plus, although the PNS stalled near Tripoli, they are still near Tarkhuna + the road to Tunisia is open and has a good buffer of recaptured villages + AlValid base is still surrounded by operational forces and the main forces that retreated there with a broken claw (which cut the road to Tunisia even in winter) have not yet been released, although it turned out to shove a little there supplies and Toyota infantry across the desert. If we take from the state of winter - then Haftar comes under Tripoli with negative efficiency. If you take as a whole over the past year, +/- positioning is all with your own. If no one intervenes strongly (Turkey with tactical groups of the battalion and brigade level or Egypt similarly), then there is a clear impasse. None of the parties can in a decisive victory.

        But in fact, Haftar did the right thing. The protracted war had no prospects. But now, in the new world situation, with the help of some international forces, he can quite achieve his goal in a peaceful (almost) way.

      Today, the city of Sabha in the south-west of Libya (750 km from Tripoli) switched to the side of Saraj, opposed the Havtor. This is a nodal city in the south-west, many roads connecting the south and north of the country pass through the Sabha. In practice, this means the loss of control by the Havtor all southwest of the country.

    The authorities do not wait as a handout ... they take power ... warriors of course from the Arabs, well, so on the third ... but let's see ... Haftar’s position is more attractive among all parties in Libya ... good luck to him

    How much they forced him to truce, but he literally escaped from negotiations, and now when they pressed two groups in the cauldron, he unilaterally announces a truce.
