LNA Haftara prepares for a major battle for Sirte

Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar is preparing for the "big battle" for the strategically important city of Sirte. This was stated by the official representative of the LNA Ahmed al-Mismari.


According to Al Hadath TV channel, the LNA is ready to battle for Sirte with the forces of the Government of National Accord (PNS) and Turkey supporting them. Currently, in the vicinity of Sirte there are movements of large forces of the PNS and the Turkish army.

In the coming hours we will witness a major battle in the vicinity of Sirte and Al-Jufra. The army expects the start of battles at any moment, it does not attack, but will restrain any forces that try to storm

- said al-Masmari.

At the moment, there is only one question on the agenda: will Egypt intervene in the Libyan conflict on the side of Haftar. The president of this country, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, did not rule out military intervention, saying that the Egyptian army would advance, "if the Libyans ask." At the same time, he warned the PNS and Turkey that Cairo would not allow anyone to seize the LNA-controlled Sirte and Al-Jufra, calling them the “red line”.

Earlier, the Libyan House of Representatives, sitting in Tobruk, called on the Egyptian armed forces to intervene in the war to protect the country's national security. The Egyptian Parliament issued a statement saying that the Egyptian armed forces have the right to intervene in the Libyan conflict, "if they see an imminent threat to the national security of the two countries."

      Keep the situation under control, look for a map on other resources. Fights for this El Muhos Rubyansk are extremely important.

        No, well, Arabs well done! Announce! There will be a grand racket! Everyone is afraid! Israel, for example, in the Six Day War did not announce an offensive, pushed all the participants in an inter-belligerent.

          The fact that the forces center around Sirte is no secret. But if the PNS will be defeated, and most likely it will be, then HaFtar (he himself received a similar counterattack when the Turks intervened) will take Tripoli on the shoulders of the running barmalei. This is understood in the PNS and the boogers are shaking to attack. Therefore, the front begins to stabilize, and the PNS here will only lose strength, and Haftar will increase. There are no land borders with Turkey, so direct invasion is problematic. But Egypt has it. Air raids also, the Turks fly farther. The fleet of the Turks is doubled, again Egypt will defend at sea and the forces for this are decent. The Egyptians will also be helped by Greece, whose fleet with Turkey has ... parity. Of course, the Greeks distance themselves from a direct collision, but they will hang over the Turks and will provide the Egyptians with intelligence information. Russian specialists will help Haftar and the Egyptians, also the French. Therefore, another Turkish adventure, may end in disrepair. By the way, that up to 15 thousand barmaley Turks threw from Syria, it is good. And what will be hot in Libya, the colder in Idlib. And most importantly, the next batch of barmalei is not to be disposed of in Libya, but immediately instantly, more immediately in the sea.

      And I don’t believe, it’s like yelling across the front line: “Hey there! Tomorrow at 6 am we’ll come to beat you, we called the boys from the neighboring yard, now there are a lot of us.” Warn the enemy about the offensive, as it were, to complicate the task.

    Urgently need to replenish stock of popcorn!
    Seriously, the mess there is not planned for children.
    On the one hand, Erdogan is euphoric from victories, but Haftar, on the contrary, is annoyed by defeat.
    Haftar asked Egypt for direct intervention and seems to receive it, and this is a direct military conflict between Egypt and Turkey.
    And Russia is trying to run between streams.

      You shouldn’t be so. Taking into account the fact that both sides of the confrontation and the other come to Moscow as meetings, it is more likely that Russia is standing with a watering can, cooling one or the other. If someone has not forgotten, then until recently, Haftar was on a horse. After negotiations in Moscow that did not suit him, he began to lose ground.

    Marshal completely lost his strategic initiative. Most likely, without Egypt he got a kayuk.
    I don’t believe in the fact that he lures the enemy into a trap. This is too complicated for him.

    In the event of an attack by the PNS, Egypt must act decisively: sink the "Turkish express" and grind all the runways, and then Saraj can be taken warm.

    Turks will take Sirte. Is this good or bad.
    He was already taken "on a swoop" when Hartaf fled from Tripoli, but reinforcements arrived and the advanced units of the Tripolitanians drove back

      Yeah. I think this will stop. Sirs, Jufra, Sabna need PNS and the Turks. This is practically the border of Tripolitania and Fezzan. There are 2 roads to Kyrenakia. Erdogan talked with Trump yesterday, there is an active flight connection.

      The only surviving Carapace was pulled up to Sirt. There was one more, but the Turks caught him and banged him about two weeks ago. As revenge for the air strike at the Tripolitans base and the loss of Hawk.

        What are your funny fantasies .... Surely 2 Armor was lost (One captured) + another 2-3 probably, but doubtful. There are bad cartoons, there are no photos of burnt cores ...
        I studied the question here - Lost Armor https://lostarmour.info sections of Libya and Syria.
        By the way, armor is found there and such ..

        And this one, which banged two weeks ago, is there anything besides your words?
        Or as usual?

    As long as the Egyptian troops are pulled up there, it may all be over. 1000 km in open areas along the sea under the supervision of bayraktars will have to go

    They do not eat pine nuts - as the bump is poorly chewed and constipation occurs from it.
