Haftar aviation dealt an unexpected blow to the rear of the PNS forces: Turkish “no-fly zone” did not work

62

The situation in Libya continues to escalate. While the forces of the so-called National Accord Government, Fayez Saraj, with the support of militants deployed from Syrian Idlib, are trying to advance to Sirt, aviation Haftara dealt an unexpected blow to the rear of the PNS troops.


We are talking about an air strike, which demonstrated that the Turkish attempt to create a no-fly zone over the northwestern part of Libya did not work, having failed.

For Haftar aviation, the arming of the PNS by Turkey with portable anti-aircraft missile systems did not become a problem.

Marshal Haftar’s aircraft launched an air strike against pro-Turkish militants and PNS forces in the Zamzam Valley, south of Misrata. Declared heavy losses in the rear of the forces of the government of national consent.

Haftar aviation dealt an unexpected blow to the rear of the PNS forces: Turkish “no-fly zone” did not work


Meanwhile, PNS forces announced that they had taken control of the city of Bani Walid. LNA has not yet confirmed this information.

In turn, the armed formations of the LNA made a march to the south-west of the country and established control over one of the largest oil fields in Libya, Sharara.



From the Sharara oil fields, oil goes in the direction of the port of Tripoli, from where representatives of the PNS tried to ship it to foreign tankers. According to some reports, the efforts of the LNA again blocked the flow of oil to the Libyan capital, which also stopped the sale of “black gold” by Fayez Saraj abroad (primarily to Turkey).

The situation with the fighting in Libya continues to be focal in nature. Moreover, the Haftar troops, without having a well-built defensive infrastructure, prefer to act in such a way that their strikes are of the character least expected by the enemy.

      In fact, the partisans could not have organized effective resistance to the Germans without air support. Apparently, Soviet aircraft made more sorties to support the partisans, mainly transport ones, than German ones to fight them. In Burma, the British, too, had to use aviation very widely to support their partisan saboteurs, to the detriment of the supply of aviation fuel to Chiang Kai-shek aviation.

    "Turkish no-fly zone"

    But was it a no-fly zone at all, or did the Turks say they made a no-fly zone there? or is the author just adding on his own?
    just wondering how it works, I have not heard about the no-fly zones created under the guise of MANPADS)

        Turks have enough funds to create a "no-fly zone"


        but here I disagree .. the fact of the matter is that Turkey has very meager funds to create a no-fly zone, in Libya even more so .. well, what tools do they have? except to transfer the old Hoki and Mime Hercules from Turkey itself and anti-tank guided missiles, that's all the air defense means of the "second most powerful" NATO army))
        Turkey does not have modern air defense systems, and it’s a long way to drive aviation to Libya. Well, there is a couple of Turkish frigates off the coast (junk decommissioned by the Americans), but the air defense is also such a thing for them ..

          Aviation is not necessary to drive, it is already based there. So far, only in the amount of 2 F-16 and this is not a secret. And about the discussed air strike, it was a Chinese UAV, not aviation. That's when Haftar aviation takes off, then the F-16s take off.

      No, Eugene, not that he (chaos) there and uncontrollable. It's just that "sponsors and players" cannot agree. Along the way, there the matter will not be limited to the fight between Haftar and Saraja. Now Egypt is concentrating on the border with Libya in order to directly contribute to the fact that would shorten Erdogan's ambitions.

              You have very strange ideas about countermeasures. Nobody declares war on one plane. Otherwise, the same Pakistan of the USSR would have bombed back in the 80s. For violation of a very serious treaty, such as regulating the passage of the Black Sea straits, there may be a war. After which the agreements will be revised not in favor of Turkey.
