PNS forces say cut paths to supply Haftar’s army south of Tripoli

The press service of the headquarters of the so-called Libyan National Accord Government (PNS) announced the name of the operation it is conducting against the forces of Marshal Haftar. The representative headquarters of Mustafa al-Mekai said that the operation is called "Volcano of Fury."


According to him, during this operation "it was possible to take three cities south of Tripoli within the last three days." These are the cities of Tiji, Badr and Esabiya (Al-Asaba). At the same time, Al-Mekai says that the PNS forces managed to cut off the supply routes of the enemy in the area of ​​the Mizde settlement.

It is worth noting here that the very formulation of the "capture" of cities by the PNS forces supported by Turkey and the militants deployed from Syrian Idlib, to put it mildly, is not entirely correct. The fact is that in none of these cities did the Libyan National Army, commanded by Khalifa Haftar, accept the battle. Recall that on the eve of the headquarters of the LNA announced that they would not fight with their compatriots until the end of the holy month for Muslims Ramadan. This month in 2020 ends on May 23. At the same time, the LNA was accused of apostasy of those who decided to start hostilities in Ramadan.

From a statement by El Mekaya from the headquarters of the PNS:

Having cut off the supply routes, we deprived the enemy of the opportunity to advance towards Tripoli. We received a letter from the elders of the city of Mizde stating that they support a legitimate government led by Fayez Sarraj and Operation Volcano of Fury.

Recall that earlier there was information about the beginning of the Haftar Air Force aviation operations. Turkey said that Haftar’s forces "will receive a powerful response."

    ONCE AGAIN the leader (s) of the Berbers went over to the other side.
    And let's not forget that Libya has been part of the Ottoman Empire for centuries, and the Turkish "roots" make themselves felt.

            It seems like the truth. What will Erdogan answer? This is essentially Article 5 of the NATO charter. Although it will most likely be like in Idlib. Each for itself.
            Unknown fighters launched a missile strike on Turkish warships near the borders of Libya.
            According to The Cavell Group, a Turkish warship was seen burning near the port of Cider, with witnesses reporting the explosion. According to some sources, the Turkish Navy warship was attacked by unknown planes, and, most likely, we are talking about the fighters of the Egyptian Air Force and the UAE Air Force, which actively support the Libyan National Army.
            “Libya: it is reported that an explosion and fire occurred on a ship east of the port of Cider. The Libyan National Army’s military source claims that the Turkish ship was attacked when it tried to approach the Ras Lanuf area, The Cavell Group reports.
            Among other things, several sources report that MiG-29 fighters and Su-24 bombers, which are only armed with Egypt, were seen in the skies over Libya, which does not exclude the possibility that the Egyptian side attacked, which, By the way, she had earlier threatened Erdogan with very serious problems for helping the forces of the Government of National Unity.

    From animals, a volcano, but it's almost hell. We completely lost the coast. No, that would be a neutral "Ax Bashk", or the local "Gaddafi-2" request

    In general, I didn’t march to Havtor in parallel and perpendicularly. I'm more interested and worried about our fate, we will call a spade a spade, a mercenary. Unfortunately, they could give their combat experience to their country, and not to some kind of arap ...

      These mercenaries are not mercenaries at all in the usual sense of the word. These are our soldiers who are not formally in the armed forces so that specific, sensitive problems can be solved. They act in the interests of our government and are completely controlled by it. In fact, these are our soldiers and warriors.
