In the Libyan PNS reported tank losses suffered by Haftar forces

Reports are also coming from Libya about the ongoing armed confrontation between the forces of the so-called Government of National Accord (PNS) and the Libyan National Army (LNA). The reports say that the forces of Fayez Saraj, supported by Turkey, tried to advance in the Yarmouk region, but great success was not achieved.


It is reported that the PNS troops managed to destroy and take as a trophy several units of military equipment. In particular, the reports speak of one destroyed tank in the area of ​​agricultural land near Tarhuna, as well as about a tank captured from the forces of Marshal Khalifa Haftar. If you believe the statements of the PNS representatives, then the tank seized from the LNA was previously delivered from Egypt. Pickups armed with machine guns taken as trophies are also reported.

Meanwhile, it became known that the forces of Haftar counterattacked the troops of the PNS in the area of ​​Wadi al-Rabi. According to the LNA, they managed to take control of the key road in the area of ​​this settlement.



It plays an important role in supplying the group. At the same time, the PNS states that control over the road remains with them. As you can see, each side is trying to declare its own victories and failures of the enemy. In other words, a hot war is going on against the backdrop of an information war.



For example, Haftar forces claim the destruction of several Turkish mercenaries, showing a frame with a kind of ritual trampling of Turkish passports.

      LNA announces its success.
      In recent years, Field-Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s air defense calculations by Libyan National Army (LNA) have shot down nearly a hundred Turkish-made drones, said LNA spokesman Khaled al-Mahjub Sky News Arabia.

      “Recently, about 94 Turkish drones have been shot down,” he said. Including, according to him, four reconnaissance and strike UAVs "Anka".

        a joke reminded
        Two fishermen meet.
        One: "Yesterday I pulled out a catfish for 100 kg!"
        The second, modestly: "Yes, I also left the spinner yesterday ... So-so - I took one pike for 10 kilos ... I brought it home, I ripped my belly open - and inside there was an old lantern with a monogram and it was written in English: James Cook, one thousand seven hundred such for a year ... So I set it on fire, and it burns ... "
        The first, thinking: "Listen, I will lose 90 kg from my catfish, but you put out the flashlight!"

    It is either upgraded or Ramses. Lyamin so identifies him by installing an AEG-Telefunken spotlight, which the Egyptians massively put on their T.


    Here they are the Egyptian version.


    Well, it may be old, like those MiGs - back in 2018, when Sisi gave away all the boor from the warehouses. For example, fresh (for 2018) MiG-21 at Haftar.

      Well, not only that. There is still the installation of western-style smoke grenade launchers, it is clearly not Soviet.
      In general, an interesting video. Anyone has paid attention to the "tug". There's such a classic "kiss of death" on the tower ... good . Something, but clearly more powerful than the PG-7, flew aboard, but fell into the fenders, which saved the crew from death.
      And this Arab, that he was messing about Russia there, who did not make out?

    With such passports it is possible to introduce spies / saboteurs into the PNA.

              Something like this. Probably the main breed was debunked and fell into the category of "separatists", more encroached on the symbol of failed statehood.

    I think it was worth the loss of two tanks, especially one of them was destroyed in the open ...
    as well as about a tank captured from the forces of Marshal Khalifa Haftar. If you believe the statements of representatives of the PNS, then captured from the LNA the tank was previously delivered from Egypt.

    Good Soviet T-55 with Egyptian modernization ...
    Information that Egypt is supplying armored vehicles for the Haftar Libyan National Army appeared a long time ago. However, now it is confirmed by reliable facts. After the LNA left its positions in the southern suburbs of Tripoli, PNS units received a large number of trophies. Yesterday they published a video on which two captured tanks were captured. One of them is a T-55E Mk sourced from Egypt. 0 option 1. This car - Egyptian modification created during the modernization of the Soviet tank.

      However, the second one was captured .. Then most likely some attacked, took some positions, while others launched a counterattack and threw them back to their original positions .. The result was a captured tank .. if the key position were in the hands of the Havtor, the tank would not have been captured. . Given the information war waged by both sides, we can come to a middle ground .. On one side of the road are the forces of the Havtor, and on the other side of the forces of the PNS .. The result is no one ...- 2 tanks ..

        Once she helped the people of Libya by bombing and brutally executing Gaddafi! Haftara is also like that though?

            So they still took it into their own hands after the destruction of Gaddafi and a couple of Libyan billions hobbled, not to mention how much Sarkozy took for his elections .. etc.

              They didn’t. It will be possible to work in white only after the final victory or freezing of the situation at the level of the UN and peacekeepers.

              There is no work in gray-black sense.

              There, the Libyans will essentially simply have to end up either building a single sea space with Turkey, working for Turkish and Qatari construction companies, giving preferences / land / special conditions to Qatari and Turkish companies, pumping oil in favor of Turkey after the victory. Or pump oil to TOTAL, the UAE, work in Egyptian, Italian (and possibly Russian) construction companies, and give special preferences to Egyptian, Emirate, Saudi, Italian, Russian, Jordanian companies.

              Initially, the common felling between upstarts (Turkey Mack Gret again and Qatar) and the current key players in the region (Egypt, Arab monarchies, Russia).

        And not only, he is still a "warrior" ... even though he is our student ...
        From 1977 to 1978, he attended the senior officer courses "Shot" in Moscow, later in 1983 he also attended a course at the MV Frunze Academy.

        He was the commander of the Libyan side in the Chadian-Libyan conflict (also known as "Toyota War") The Libyan base, located on the border of Chad and Libya, was destroyed, thousands of Libyan soldiers died. Haftar himself and about 400 people of his subordinates were captured. Shortly before this, Muammar Gaddafi signed an agreement on the withdrawal of Libyan troops from Chad, so Haftar’s actions violated these agreements. Muammar Gaddafi publicly renounced the prisoners, including Haftar, the latter broke all ties with Gaddafi and rallied around him people ready to help him prepare for the coup. He was called the main shame of Gaddafi, because what happened was a serious blow to Libyan ambitions in Chad.

        According to some reports, Haftar made a deal with the CIA, which resulted in his release and relocation to the United States in 1990. In 1993, he obtained US citizenship, and settled in Vienna, Virginia, and lived there for 20 years. He collaborated with the CIA and the Liberation Salvation Front, developing a new coup to overthrow Gaddafi, and even tried to lead an uprising in the mountains of southern Libya in 1996, but it failed.
        Marshal Haftar receives support, weapons and funding from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE. His opponents get help from Qatar and Turkey.
        Fluent English and Russian tongues.

    it says one destroyed tank
    , others trample on Turkish passports, which in their opinion can be attributed to "bloody battles." Would have learned from the Houthis or something.

    If Russia does not support Haftar and the field marshal loses, then you will have to get out of Syria too. All the trouble will go down the drain. And there Russia will have to be tight.
