Haftar was informed of the reasons why they did not accept the battle at Al-Vatiya airbase

Representatives of the army of Marshal Khalifa Haftar speak out about the loss aviation base of al-Watiyah. Recall that the forces of the Government of National Accord Fayez Saraj attribute themselves to victory in Al-Vatiya (south of Tripoli), not mentioning that foreign mercenaries and Turkish forces participated in the attack on the base.


The Libyan National Army says that the LNA was actually "the victim of a previously announced comprehensive ceasefire in connection with the onset of the holy month of Ramadan for Muslims." In 2020, Ramadan in the calendar falls on the period from April 24 to May 23.

Haftar’s army fighters say that in connection with the battles launched by the enemy during the ceasefire in the month of Ramadan, “those who began these hostilities cannot be called Muslims.” It is noted that "the operation could be planned by those who have nothing to do with the Islamic religion." Participants in the storming of al-Vatiya, in the LNA, were called apostates and stated that they had turned to the enemy with a request to “change their mind”.

From the statement of the LNA representatives:

We will not accept the battle until the holy month of Ramadan ends. We did not accept the battle a few days ago for the same reason. Yes, you have to retreat. But this will ease the situation for the inhabitants of Tripoli in the last days of the holy month.

Does this mean that the Haftar’s army is ready to give battle to the enemy after May 23 (if by that moment it remains operational)? No less questions are raised by how frank the LNA fighters were, citing reasons for not accepting the battle in al-Vatiya.

On the eve of the positions of Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s troops, a blow was struck in the area of ​​the Asaba settlement. Opponents of the LNA once again used a massive attack strike UAV Bayraktar. One of the missiles destroyed the Pantsir air defense missile system delivered from the UAE. About this, "Military Review" reported the day before.

The Sarajah government’s interior ministry said that if Haftar’s troops were defeated in the area of ​​Tarhun, then the LNA’s plans to take Tripoli would “be destroyed.”

        And what's the point of fully getting into it? With Gaddafi, they did not hug much, but here Haftar with a dubious backpack, in which, among other things, there are close relations with the CIA and the USA. On our part, we need some support of the Marshal only as one of the levers of influence on other players in this region. Edik needs Libya, we need Idlib, so there is a chance to agree on a plan to mutually advance interests. Haftar will win, well, there will be an opportunity to restore previously lost contracts, he will not win, we will also lose a little, because the same contracts are dead and Sarajah will blow in side of their curators and sponsors, who are traditionally against us. Something like that winked

      It doesn't bother me. We seem to be helping Haftar? Well, if you decide to help, then you need to help so that the ward does not lose the airbase and "Pantsiri" for a sniff of tobacco. Otherwise, what's the point in helping someone who loses?

        Those. need help someone who will win without you? And then he needs help? Let me remind you that 80 years ago we ourselves retreated to Moscow. And they helped us. This is the first. And secondly, let them buy shells from us and lose them as much as they want. After they pay. This is a business.

          1. The guardian does not know whether he will win or not. Therefore, he will not refuse help.
          2. If you have undertaken to help, then you need to HELP so that he does not lose "Armor" and does not do him anti-advertising. (This is business)
          3. Analysts had to calculate Haftar’s ability to win, taking into account our help. And, if his victory is likely, then only then begin to help him.
          Otherwise - you can’t poop, don’t torture the ass.

            First, Haftar has not yet lost the war. Maybe analysts were wondering something? Secondly, besides the USA, there was, for example, Mongolia, a land lens. Take an interest. Learn a lot of interesting things. As for business, for example, Turkey sold the S-400. In your opinion, it was not necessary? Suddenly, someone will defeat them? With such pretenses you can’t sell anything to anyone. Somali pirates are armed with Kalash. Have you seen these machines in the pictures? Take an interest. And they shoot! This is an advertisement. And not estimates who will win.

            This is not the point.
            The bottom line is that the "Pantsiri" developed and manufactured by us could not withstand the Turkish "tractors". That is, bad rumor about the low characteristics and combat qualities of our weapons will go around the world. Although, it seems to me, "Shell" was too much of a publicity. Now it's time to collect stones.

              Yes, nothing will go for a walk if only in the yellow press, for example, the Saudis have patriots bombed and nothing, because all equipment is subject to destruction, for specialists it’s clear that the monkeys control and not the technology is to blame, and they also buy specialists for whom characteristics are important not how many were once destroyed

            You are mistaken! The first deliveries of tanks and planes from England began in August 1941! The English tanks were in the battle for Moscow! True, this was not Lend-Lease yet, but equipment and much more were already delivered!

              There were a few, I do not argue. If I give someone a hundred rubles, this is also considered help, but to sense.

      I'm tired of this "Marlezon ballet" in Libya. The month of Ramadan prevented them ...
      Something constantly interferes with a bad dancer.
      Haftaru have to get out of hibernation.
      Experienced pro-Turkish barmaleys from Syria entered into the matter.
      These will not be joking. Accustomed to cutting heads ...
      It's time to take Tripoli. Finally.

        Last year, in the same month, Ramadan Havtor continuously stormed Tripoli .. He was doing well then and didn’t even remember about Ramadan .. And now, suddenly, Bats .... and remembered that there is such a month Ramadan ..
        PS The Holy Scripture forbids any war between Muslims ... And it is also forbidden to kill those who worship the One Allah (GOD in Arabic) .. And who observes this Holy Scripture?

    "Those who began these hostilities cannot be called Muslims."

    War is a way of deception and in it all means are good.
    We will not accept the battle until the holy month of Ramadan ends.

    This is not a military man. And he began to die, either the Haftarovsky drang will deflate completely, or there will be a lot of excess blood ...
    called apostates and said that they turned to the enemy with a request to "think again."

    Moa ha ha !!!
    However, Haftaru is not used to it. I remember in the late 80s. last century, something like that with him was already in Chad ...
