Haftar aviation took off: a video showing the preparation of the MiG-23MLD was shown


Libyan reports indicate that aviation Marshal Khalifa Haftar begins an air operation against the forces of the so-called Government of National Accord Fayez Saraj and his allies. The military allies of the PNS are militants who were previously deployed to northern Africa from Syrian Idlib, as well as Turkey. Recall that it was the Turkish Bayraktar drones that were actively used in the attack on the Al-Vatiya air base south of Tripoli.


On shots from Libya appeared the preparation of aircraft for striking at positions, facilities and infrastructure of the PNS and the forces supporting this structure. In particular, we are talking about the equipment of several combat aircraft, including MiG-23MLD fighters. It is reported that these aircraft began to fly from Al Joufra airfield to strike mercenary positions in the Garyan area.


In the meantime, the headquarters of the Libyan National Army call false information about the alleged transfer of MiG-29 fighters and Su-24 bombers from the Khmeimim air base in Syria. Recall that on the eve of such data was presented by the American news agency Bloomberg, citing a representative of the PNS. The headquarters of the LNA note that this lie was created with the help of Turkish structures. In particular, the Turkish Foreign Ministry is mentioned. It is added that the aircraft in question have nothing to do with the Russian Air Force (VKS) and have never been in the Air Force of the Russian Federation.

It should be noted that previously the forces of Marshal Haftar successfully used the MiG-23 against the forces of Saraj, causing significant damage in different parts of Libya. However, this time the situation may be complicated for Haftar, if information on the supply of air defense systems from Turkey by air defense systems is confirmed. According to some reports, we can talk about the supply of missile defense.

        First: The war in Libya is pulling Turkish forces out of Syria. Fighting on two fronts is difficult even for the Sultans.
        Secondly: In case of victory, Libya under the leadership of Haftar, with a high degree of probability, will be an anti-Turkish state. How there will be further relations between the Russian Federation and Turkey is not known. An extra potential ally will not be superfluous. Therefore, my opinion is that support for the LNA should be provided.

            Why unmeasured? Moreover, the UAE is responsible for the infusion. We are more likely to have a diplomatic roof ... well, the Sultan will not come to an agreement with some camel lovers (hundreds of years old Turkish citizens) as mediators and peacekeepers. The interests of France and Italy in Libya are also great. Italy, by the way, also seems to be for havtor

            I hold a different point of view. The Turks openly intervened in the database in Libya, supporting the side opposing Haftaru. Haftar suffered losses as a result. So the "spring mood" has already been created there. We don’t have to invest much. MANPADS, ATGMs, well, and there still something in the little things. So that the Turks did not seem to be honey. To feel like losing a plane with a crew. Or a tank.
            And after the war, the Libyans will need someone to lean against. Therefore, they are unlikely to become insolent now with requests for help.

          But only EXCLUSIVELY by indirect actions. For us, straits is a strategic issue. Yes, and as an economic partner, Turkey is considerable - they decided to trade each other up to 100 billion dollars. to bring. And in Syria, Iraq it is necessary to resolve issues.
          So it’s irrational for us to stand against Turkey.
          Haftara supports Egypt (our partner and almost an ally sometimes) - let him support further. The UAE is supported by military supplies and financially - great, it’s a buyer of Russian weapons, even if it helps. France - let it decide.
          Russia officially maintains relations with both parties. Interposing another civil conflict is completely useless to us. On the mercantile side, continuing it is even profitable - as long as there is war there will be less oil on the market.
          Bloomberg fake about deliveries of 6 MiG-29 and 2 Su-24 from Russia turned out to be fake. Both the Haftar side and the Russian Foreign Ministry have denied this.
          And they couldn’t have reacted so quickly with deliveries IMMEDIATELY after the defeat of Haftar’s air defense - there would have been no time for the planes to prepare and overtake, find the pilots ...
          Would anyone have enough time?
          Of those who have the MiG-29 available and are ready for war?
          That's right - in Egypt.
          And why ?
          And because they are nearby, they actively support Haftar, they even threatened the Turkish war if Thai enters Libya ...
          Turkey ENTERED.
          It defeated Haftar’s air defense, repelled a number of cities and a strategically important air base ... The front cracked, the threat of the complete defeat of Field Marshal what
          It is urgent to stabilize the situation, make up for the losses of the VLA and cover it from air attacks.
          IMMEDIATELY .
          How to do it easier and faster?
          Transfer a couple of fighter units to provide air defense from Turkish drones!
          For 7 (seven!) ZRPK "Shell" destroyed and captured by Turkish proxy trophies ...
          Egypt most likely threw its fighters to Libya. But they most likely will not take part in attacks on Turkish targets and ships - for this there is a MiG-23, etc. But from the air they will cover it, UAVs are knocked down.
          But Russia has nothing to meddle in, because we can lose more than we gain. For us, Turkey is still an important partner.
          And Haftaru from caring Russians - moral support and the wish of success. hi bully

      Will they swim? The forces of both sides in Libya are certainly insignificant, but thousands of 10 people must be dragged. Those. time is needed. The victory of the PNS is a division with the Turks (including Cypriot) of the Mediterranean into economic zones that are practically merging ... and there are gas deposits ... the turmoil itself and the participation of the Turks because of this ... and the Greeks do not recognize Turkish Northern Cyprus, but 2 / 3 of all Turkish, and the most combat-ready, troops (taking into account the war with the Kurds in Libya) are against Greece. And Egypt is also nearby ... Italy also does not need such a deal.
      For Haftar, a lot of people can harness directly ... the batch will break out epic.

    In general, the main goal for Haftar now, of course, is the forces of the Turkish troops, including ships, both military and transport. But does Haftar have the means to defeat them?

      So far, things are going wrong with the old Marshal. [/ Center]

      Why did they get ... he controls so far most of the territory of Libya .... without the support of the "world community" ....

      His troops ousted from the southern suburbs of Tripoli.
      (Little blue ones that are against Haftar)

      Well, Haftar is not the first time trying to take Tripoli, leaves the city, regroups and at the right time takes him or his strategic part ...
      In the southern part of Tripoli, for example, there is an international airport ... and which was already captured by Haftar before in 2019, do not read the periodicals or something ... so it's easy to check ...
      The Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, established control over vast territories on the southern outskirts of Tripoli, including taking over the long-functioning international airport of the capital, and is now developing an offensive to the city center.

      And in general, it seems, they will soon be surrounded.
