Noteworthy are the statements by representatives of the so-called Libyan national accord government regarding the activity of Marshal Haftar’s troops in the west of the country.

When the PNS forces, supported by the Turkish contingent and militants deployed from Syrian Idlib, attacked the Libyan national army’s control facilities (al-Watiyah, Al-Yarmouk, etc.), this was called a “strike against the coup and renegades.” When did she answer aviation LNA, the PNS and Turkish bloggers announced that "Haftar is targeting civilians." Moreover, they recalled Ramadan and Uraza-Bayram. Although, during the offensive, no one in the PNS remembered the holy month for Muslims for some reason.

The published photo shows the attack by LNA aircraft on the territory of the police station, where, according to the military intelligence of the Libyan National Army, ammunition for the armed forces of Fayez Saraj was stored. It was this blow that was called the “blow to civilians.”

Meanwhile, a map appeared on the Turkish TRT Haber channel, which shows the control area by various forces.



Red zone - control of the PNS. Green - the control of the MNA of Marshal Haftar

The map clearly shows that if the PNS closes its positions south of Tarhuna, the LNA group, which was preparing to take Libya, will be in the boiler. However, for this PNS to achieve loyalty on the part of the Tuaregs, whose tribes partially control the territory of Garyana. These are thousands of square kilometers of territory.

According to some reports, it is the Tuareg tribes, many of which are armed, that do not yet allow the PNS forces to close the ring in the Tarkhuna area. So far, the PNS forces have not been able to agree, which makes it difficult to take Haftar’s troops into the circle.

Gray circles on the map also indicate areas that remain under the control of ISIS militants (* terrorist group banned in Russia). One of the largest ISIS control areas is an oil field south of Jufra.

        But here, in my opinion, the “shreds” are generally small and some sort of ... Elongated, or something, small, non-standard ... Is there an air strike? As in Stalingrad - our house, the house of the Nazis, our floor, in the basement of Natsik, and who is in the alley, it is not clear ..

        There’s still an information war in full swing. There’s always a lot of lies in the war. At least one Chinese UAV was shot down with the help of Turkish frigate air defense. The remains of the rocket launched from the ship were found. There is a photo on the Internet.
        Statements by Turkish news agencies about the total destruction of the Pantsir-S air defense missile defense system in Syria turned out to be another fake. Most of the videos presented are the result of video editing and the use of special effects, which, by the way, are very low-quality, which made it possible to argue that the video, as well as all other information on this subject, is fake.

        At the moment, experts have announced that they can only confirm the capture of one Pantsir-S1E air defense missile system and the destruction of two more complexes. The rest of the videos are fake, designed to demoralize citizens who actively support the Libyan national army, and, probably, bring down criticism on Russian complexes.

        According to the information provided by the Arabian information publication AMN, over the past 72 hours, air defense systems that are in service with the Libyan national army, and it is mainly about Soviet and Russian air defense systems, were able to destroy at least five Turkish drones that tried to get closer to the position areas of the LNA. Judging by the piles of debris left from the destroyed drones, the Libyan national army most likely switched to using the Buk-M2 air defense system.

        “The army said in a statement via Facebook that their air defense platforms were able to bring down five Turkish aircraft from last Thursday. The statement stated that on Thursday evening two aircraft were destroyed in the city of Tarhuna, in addition to a drone in the Al-Quraiyat area and another UAV in the Abu Ghraib region south of the city of Bani Walid at dawn on Friday. The Government of National Accord, supported by Turkey, and their allies have stepped up their attacks on the strategic city of Tarhun as part of preparing a new attack to capture this strategic area in western Libya, ”AMN reports.

    It’s clear from the map that none of the parties has an absolute advantage .. It is interesting that there is an ISIS enclave in the Ajdabiye area, which is completely surrounded by the Havtor’s forces, but there is no war ... very strange ... Fight against Saraj accusing him of terrorism, while deeply having an enclave of real terrorists and not touching them .. As for the Tuaregs, they are like everyone .. They have their own goals ... If they don't let us surround you today, this does not mean that it will always be like that. ..In principle, they can and agree ..
    The PNS is now trying, in addition to surrounding the Havtor’s forces near Tarhuna, to take control of the southern borders in order to block the access of mercenaries from Chad and Niger .. The Havtor doesn’t have much infantry ..

        Rather, the Donbass in the summer of 2014 - Ukrainian mechanized brigades are advancing along the border with Russia trying to cut off the republics from supplies. At this time, Strelkov breaks out of Slavyansk and immediately strikes the flank of the Armed Forces. As a result, three Ukrainian mechanized brigades are surrounded. good

        In this situation, something like this would help a lot - to retreat from Tahuna in order to avoid being surrounded, and immediately plunge into the flank of the PNS forces rushing south. Surround and destroy. angry

    Also in Afghanistan, the same Pashtuns essentially turned out to be the real owners of the lands, and not the authorities. Here in Libya, the Tuareg is also a formidable force, if we agree with them wisely.

      Why is it complicated? The Americans, together with their NATO partners, with the help of a variety of "rebels" whom they themselves sponsor are trying to squeeze oil from another state, as was the case in Iraq and Syria.

          Against the background of all this, Israel and Turkey are slowly recovering relations.
          On Saturday, May 24, an Israeli El Al Israeli Dreamliner cargo plane landed in Turkey.

          This is reported by Israeli media.

          Earlier, an Israeli airline received permission to carry goods to Turkish Istanbul.

          This happened for the first time in 10 years. In total, two flights a week are planned. It is specified that the plane transported equipment to Turkey as part of humanitarian assistance.

        Yes, it’s not so simple. The paradox lies in the fact that the United States does not really want the PNS to defeat the Haftar forces, because then large volumes of Libyan oil will enter the market, which will nullify the agreements reached on the results of the oil war to reduce production volumes. Now, in the defeat of the HNA of Haftar, the main stakeholder is Ankara, which is committed to reducing the bearded population in Idlib and transferring them to Libya. Here, even a telephone conversation between Trump and Erdogan on this topic took place to reduce the intensity of the fighting in Libya and move on to an agreement. So in this hodgepodge the devil himself will break his leg. request

    In continuation of the story about the supply of modern aviation equipment of the Libyan National Army.

    We are talking about the urgent purchase of the UAE in the secondary market of at least 10 MiG-29 fighters, the same number of Su-24M front-line bombers, as well as about six Mi-24V / P combat helicopters. Negotiations are also ongoing on the redemption of the Brazilian Mi-35M combat helicopters (at least four). Delivery of SA342 Gazelle helicopters is not excluded.

    The UAE also transfers LNA about 10 combat vehicles ZRPK "Shell-C1" from the presence, a new batch of armored vehicles and vehicles.

    On the side of the LNA there was also a request for the supply of self-propelled ATGM Chrysanthem-S and BMP-3, but it has not yet been satisfied.

    According to some reports, it is the Tuareg tribes, many of which are armed, that do not yet allow the PNS forces to close the ring in the Tarkhuna area. So far, the PNS forces have not been able to agree, which makes it difficult to take Haftar’s troops into the circle.
    I wouldn’t count on these Tuaregs ... when Tripoli fell, during the time of Gaddafi, they began to trumpet with cheers and patriotic resources about Tuaregs hurrying to help the colonel ... but in the end, no one came, and Gaddafi was found in a water pipe. .. maybe there are no Tuaregs at all, or they don’t have a drum for this whole war on the coast
