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."

    Продадут "маршала" свои же "генералы".. У них опыт есть.. Полковника продали, маршала тем более продадут.. Интересно, продешевят или неплохо поднимутся?

      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
            Вообще-то и Ливия , и Египет когда-то входили в состав Османской Империи , и Ливию турки потеряли последней - так что фантомные боли былой империи дают некую тень "легетемизма" .
            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.
              Что до Хафтара - примеры "демократического" суда ясно показывают, что живым им лучше не сдаваться.

                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.

                        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.
                        Но поддержать военными поставками сторонников\покровителей Хавтара , мы можем . В Египет начаты поставки заказанных прежде Су-35 , эти поставки могут быть расширены и дополнены системами ПВО , береговыми РК "Бал" , а может и "Бастион" - для более эффективного сдерживания Турции .
                        У России нет необходимых сил флота для обозначения своих интересов в регионе . Только через несколько лет - когда войдут в строй несколько новых фрегатов , крейсер "Нахимов" и вернётся в строй "Адмирал Кузнецов" .

                        "Но поддержать военными поставками сторонников\покровителей Хавтара , мы можем " Тоже трудная задача,так как сторонникам будет трудно обойти эмбарго на поставки воюющим сторонам,тем более после поддержки США правительства ПНС. Египет и ОАЭ наврятли после "косого взгляда Трампа" что либо посмеют сделать.

      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.

    The forces of special operations have epic megafiles in this and the Americans have been noted by many others, too, the Turks are welcome to the club.

      У турецкой разведки имеются успехи в подобных операциях. Лидер курдской РПК Абдулла Оджалан укрывался в греческом посольстве в Кении. Ему сказали, что его срочно отправляют в Голландию. В феврале 99-го. Как он оказался в самолёте турецкой разведки и был доставлен в Турцию не знает ни он, ни кто либо другой. Лишь когда самолёт в воздухе пересёк госграницу Турции ему заявили, "Добро пожаловать в Турцию Абдулла". Греки и сами не поняли как это произошло.
