Military Review

Libyan PNS forces ready to conduct an operation to capture Marshal Haftar with the help of Turkish intelligence


The delegation of representatives of the Turkish authorities met with Faiz Saraj and other members of the Libyan National Accord Government. The Turkish delegation sent by Recep Erdogan to Tripoli includes the following officials: Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Finance Minister Berat Albayrak, National Intelligence Minister Hakan Fidan, Presidential Representative Ibrahim Kalyn.

According to the latest information, the conditions for providing the next “package” of assistance to the Sarajj government, which is conducting a military confrontation with the Libyan national army of Marshal Khalifa Haftar, were indicated. Given that the head of the Turkish intelligence agency also entered the delegation, the assistance promises to be multilateral - providing Turkish intelligence to the PNS forces and pro-Turkish militants who were transferred to Libya from Syria, including.

According to some reports, among other issues, the issue of actual control of oil fields and oil exports was discussed. Turkey is clearly not going to provide financial, military and military-technical assistance to Tripoli for free. One of Turkish interests is Libyan oil (provided Erdogan has difficulties with Syrian oil).

Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglu:

We discussed all the steps that need to be taken in the Mediterranean in terms of energy.

In this case we are talking about the extraction of "black gold" on the Mediterranean shelf. In this situation, Turkey has actually entered into a conflict of interests with France, which, after the overthrow of Colonel Gaddafi, has largely taken over the Libyan oil business.

Meanwhile, an information campaign, organized by the PNS, is gaining momentum in Libya. It is proposed to carry out a special operation to capture Khalifa Haftar "in order to give him to the tribunal." The blogosphere notes that “there is a willingness” and that Turkish intelligence, whose head visited the Libyan capital as part of the delegation, can help with this PNS. It is noted that "Haftar should be brought to justice before negotiations on a peaceful settlement in Libya begin."

    The "marshal" will be sold by their own "generals" .. They have experience .. The colonel has been sold, the more the marshal will be sold .. I wonder if they will be cheap or will rise well?

      Even if it succeeds, there will be no Marshal ... the New Generalissimo will appear! The contradictions are too strong, the question is not in the personalities of the leaders of Libya, but in the confrontation of the Puppeteers behind the conflict! Haftora is also not supported by the "Children"!

        Recently, the sponsors of the Havtar also did not like it - they were looking for a replacement. Younger and smarter. After all, he broke the whole game himself - he left with a snort from the negotiations until their completion, declared himself the winner and the only ruler of Libya and ... went on a rampage to Ramadan fool No. ... along with his entire army.
        The Turks ate a bit and they have something for that - the jackpot is great.
        But are other interested parties ready to fight / fight for their interests ... Egypt, Greece, France, Emirates ... Au. smile

          And what does the Turks have to do with this territory? It can be seen the Turks have not received a lot of money for a long time.

            Eco you Turks and Turkophiles minuses pushed. lol
            In fact, both Libya and Egypt were once part of the Ottoman Empire, and the Turks lost Libya last - so the phantom pains of the former empire give a kind of shadow of "legetism".
            But of course, they have no legitimacy, except for a military assistance agreement with one of the parties to the conflict. They have quite a commercial interest for themselves - energy resources (and not only on the shelf, but ALL Libyan resources - throughout the territory), and the issue of influence in the Mediterranean region ... After all, the USA as a hegemon is blown away rapidly, and Europe is weak and dull.
            For the Turks, this is a chance.
            And will it be for them to do this muslim ... question. It all depends on the determination and willingness to make sacrifices and expenses from sponsors of the opposite side of the conflict - Egypt, the UAE, Greece, France, SA, etc.
            Russia does not need to interfere in this conflict - there are no interests in the energy sector (the French and Italians already stand there), and those that were there were contracts with Gaddafi.
            Another thing is to sell weapons. Or assist in peace negotiations.

              And it will be funny if they simultaneously capture the leadership of the PNS.
              As for Haftar, the examples of "democratic" court clearly show that they are better off not surrendering alive.

                The PNS leadership is now under the close protection of the Turks, it is not easy. Turks from the United States received carte blanche, which is why they behave so defiantly, and now Havtar can’t do without outside help - the Turks have sent their proxies to Libya with the no less full-fledged division + the Turkish army itself and their PMCs.
                Now much depends on Egypt ... but if the United States presses them ...
                Time will tell .

                  We are now unable to support the Kurds — there will be more harm to us.
                  But the UAE may well. How to directly support Haftar.
                  So that the Turks were not up to foreign policy

                    It is necessary to support Egypt - it is big, friendly to us, it purchases our weapons and announced its intentions. If the UAE will undertake the purchase of weapons and financing, it is possible to organize the supply of weapons from our storage bases and the training of soldiers by our PMCs. But it is not worth it to enter into a conflict by ourselves or even our PMCs - not that level of interest. And there is not such an excess of young trained military force to spend it on someone else's interest.
                    Interesters must fight themselves.

                      "We need to support Egypt - it is big, friendly to us." Not everything is so simple. Sisi came to power through a coup. The United States supported him and therefore he is still a president. That is, he is no one without the United States. The opposition, supporters of the former president (Mursi) are waiting so he has big restrictions, a red line that the US does not allow to cross.

                        Yes, in the USA they answered Lavrov’s appeal that they support the opposite side (to Havtar) in the Libyan conflict. Erdogan seems to have received carte blanche from the United States for meddling in Libya.
                        That is why Russia should refuse direct support, and help indirectly only if other interested parties are ready to fight. And no direct actions - Russia does not have such interests in Libya, for which it is worth fighting.
                        But we can support Khavtar's supporters / patrons with military supplies. Deliveries of the previously ordered Su-35s have begun to Egypt, these deliveries can be expanded and supplemented with air defense systems, coastal missile systems "Bal", and maybe "Bastion" - for more effective containment of Turkey.
                        Russia does not have the necessary naval forces to designate its interests in the region. Only a few years later, when several new frigates are commissioned, the cruiser "Nakhimov" will return to service "Admiral Kuznetsov".

                        "But we can support Khavtar's supporters / patrons with military supplies." It is also a difficult task, since it will be difficult for supporters to bypass the embargo on supplies to the belligerent parties, especially after the US support of the TNC government. Egypt and the UAE navryatli dare to do anything after "Trump's sidelong glance".

      If Haftar affects Turkish interests in Libya, he will become a legitimate target. In this case, they promise to kill Haftar, as the Americans did with Kassim Suleymani.

      These countries are former territories of the OI, for more than 400 years the Turks ruled them. Subconsciously they understand that they can’t cope with the Turks, not militarily, not in the state mind and planning. These countries have no deep foundations, roots of state governance and thinking, according to at least in the last 500 years. 400 years they ruled the OI, then, from the beginning of the 20th century, there were rich, but vassal countries, dolls of the West, drawn with a pen on the map.

      Turkish intelligence has successes in such operations. The leader of the Kurdish PKK, Abdullah Ocalan, took refuge in the Greek embassy in Kenya. He was told that he was urgently sent to Holland. In February 99th. Neither he nor anyone else knows how he got on the Turkish intelligence plane and was taken to Turkey. Only when the plane in the air crossed the Turkish state border, he was told, "Welcome to Turkey Abdullah." The Greeks themselves did not understand how it happened.
