PNS forces take control of Tripoli airport after hours of fighting

About six hours after the start of the active phase of the Libyan Government’s National Accord (PNC) forces ’operation to take control of Tripoli Airport, there were reports of these forces entering the air harbor.


PNS units, supported by militants deployed from Turkey in Syrian Idlib, used artillery, mortars, and pickups equipped with memory and machine guns to launch VLA strikes and advance towards Kasr bin Gashir. This settlement, located south of Tripoli, is the international airport of the Libyan capital. This place is marked on the map below.

On the pages of social networks controlled by the armed groups of the PNS, geotags with the coordinates of the airport are marked. Moreover, the accounts state that Tripoli airport has completely come under the control of the PNS after several hours of fighting. There is no official confirmation of this kind of information yet. Although it is not entirely clear what exactly can be considered official information, given the presence in Libya of at least two opposing groups that consider themselves and only themselves legitimate.



The map shows the distribution of the LNA forces of Marshal Haftar (marked in burgundy brown) and PNS forces (marked in green). The map is published on Gargari's Twitter account.



A few videos from the vicinity of Tripoli air harbor from the PNS forces supported by Turkey:





Shown trophies PNS captured in the airport area. In particular, it refers to the captured armored vehicle of the troops of Khalifa Haftar:



Meanwhile, Middle Eastern media say that Marshal Haftar is in talks with Egyptian authorities on possible assistance. And today it became known that representatives of the PNS are holding talks in Moscow with the leadership of the Russian Foreign Ministry. Earlier, the PNS noted that they arrived in Moscow, because "without Russia it is impossible to resolve the Libyan conflict."

      so it ceased to be enough that the PNS has been hitting the LNA for a week in a row, Haftar is retreating and retreating, and those who have no hatch in the world of Armor are being minushed with catastrophic regularity

        Yes, there is so much talk and talk about this that no self-respecting troll is shy about trolling this topic. You, it turns out - not a self-respecting troll. Lazy, toothless and inactive, judging by the traffic. laughing

    In the second video, the captured MREP looks very much like Turkish, the color is the same. Somewhere, Haftar’s fighters squeezed him from the Turks. A regular army rides on such.

    The main thing for Russia is not to rush and take the side of the one who will hand over the largest oil and gas fields in Libya to us for a long-term concession (the production cost of which is close to zero).

    Russia intercepted the Middle East game with a brilliant and (extremely) timely operation in Syria. Of course, the game was taken into account and our "partners", whose playful little hands showed themselves apart from Libya, which they destroyed, also in Turkey, Egypt, Algeria, Sudan, Yemen, etc. Not to mention Iraq, which has eaten to the point of vomiting democracy. They were active everywhere, where their influence was incomplete.

    Haftar got a tinsel. Will that question still draw conclusions?

    But the stakes in Libya are increasing, new players are getting involved, the tangle of contradictions is growing. We will see how and what.

    It is difficult to judge the veracity of this information until we see a stream. And so the crowd in shower shales with clean heels and shiny legs fits poorly into the story of trained militants from Syria.
    Watch the last video, their legs are clean !!! None of their knees are knocked down and that these are reliable shots of fighters?

      Well, this is meat. In Syria, they also mostly glowed. These guys make less money.


      They generally keep anonymity in high esteem, here are 301 painted on their faces on their releases.




      There are already a lot of videos about the airport:

    Russia added fuel to the fire, throwing weapons and mercenaries into this cauldron to divert Turkish forces from Syria and force it to transfer crowds of combat-ready militants from Idlib to help the PNS, giving a serious respite to the Syrian military. Assad’s main task now in Syria is to establish strong control in the rear of his troops, in settlements and industrial areas, and control of roads and crossings. As well as the struggle of special services with hidden cells of gangs. It doesn’t matter to Russia who will win in Libya - in any case, it does not benefit from it. In the case of peace in Libya, Libyan oil will rush to the world market at a low price and for Russia (for the oligarchs of Rosneft) this is bad.
