Marshal Haftar threatens foreign ships and planes crossing borders without LNA approval

23

The Russian Foreign Ministry announced a new meeting between Russian and Turkish representatives, which will touch upon the issues of Libyan settlement. Recall that at the moment the forces of the government of national accord Faiz Saraj, supported by Ankara, have stopped to the west of Sirte and do not dare to move forward. Earlier, a threat was voiced from Egypt to the PNS and pro-Turkish militants: if the Sirte-Al-Jufra line is crossed, then Egypt will send troops to Libya.


Meanwhile, reports are coming from Libya that the command of the Libyan National Army of Marshal Khalifa Haftar is issuing a warning. LNA General Ahmed al-Mismari stated that countries, ships or means aviation who are approaching the Libyan borders are required to report this to the LNA forces. According to General al-Mismari, this will be evidence that aircraft and ships (ships) heading across the air or sea borders of Libya are not being used for purposes that may be associated with a new escalation of the conflict.

Ahmed al-Mismari:

To avoid escalation, ships and aircraft must communicate their intentions to the Libyan National Army.

We can say that al-Mismari's statement is directed primarily to Turkey. This country is sending to Libya weapon, ammunition, ammunition for the militants who are fighting on the side of the forces of the government of national accord.

The LNA notes that if ships or aircraft entering the airspace or territorial waters of Libya do not proceed to coordinate further actions with the LNA, they ignore the communication, then the LNA can use all available means against them. The PNC called it "clear threats that cannot be ignored by the international community."

    What is interesting: he is sending it to Libya, spending is decent in Syria, under the guise of training in Azerbaijan they climbed and the funds are enough for three fronts. Erdogan dispersed in earnest.
    The LNA can use all available means against them ... The PNC called it "obvious threats that cannot be ignored by the international community."
    Well, who else, if not to the "international community", Turkey is probably in their opinion rather weak against this background. The conflict is only growing, and therefore until each other with the help of "friends" will not clean up the end and the edge will not be.

      Marshal Haftar threatens foreign ships and planes crossing borders without LNA approval

      In general, interesting events take place there. yes .

      Along the way, MiG-29 fighters from the Al-Jufra airbase attacked Turkish short-range air defense systems west of Sirte and destroyed 3 to 4 Turkish air defense systems.
      Air defense systems did not open fire and could not detect the approach of the MiG-29. Electronic warfare systems were supposedly used.
      In this area, the Turks deployed the Hawk air defense system, the Korkut mobile systems, as well as the old Soviet S-125, which was delivered to the Abu Grain area from near Misrata, where the KORAL electronic warfare system was deployed.

      The way the MiGs confidently control the sky over Sirte is clearly demonstrated in this video:

          Have you read the comment? The MiGs have already turned up to 4 targets there when they hit Turkish air defense systems. The Turks modestly kept silent about which ones. And the actual number can be large ...

          And remember, the Turks also have aviation there, but they repeat .

                Two Russian-made MiG-29 fighters attacked the short-range air defense systems deployed by Turkey in Sirte, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing the news agency Aviapro.

                Aviapro. Well, what can I say, a "worthy" source of "information".

            Aviation? UAVs ... yes, but the planes only flew in to cover their ships, but did not land on the ground.

              Yes, OH! Oh, how hard it is to realize that the interlocutor does not see the difference between and between ...

              Between patrolling their territory, which was also demonstratively demonstrated "on camera", and air defense work in the depths of the enemy's defense ...

              Naturally, everything looks different.

              But at the same time, am I obliged to explain and illustrate every nuance, every sneeze?

              What doesn't suit you? Scarcity of information? Other, I don't have no no , if you really need the ion with more details and in a larger volume, find it yourself.
              And if you also share it, I will only be immensely grateful.

        Another interesting thing. Italian media report that the Turks blocked the landing of 40 Italian soldiers in Misrata and demanded that they fly back.
        The Italians were supposed to support the operation of the humanitarian mission in Misrata.
        Meanwhile, Turkey has deployed at the Al-Watia airbase new air defense systems "Hawk" mutually destroyed last month, as well as electronic warfare Redet-2 systems. F-16s have not been seen there yet, but it is a matter of time before they appear there.
        Another question is whether the Turkish air defense will be able to fully cover Al-Watia if the LNA Air Force or Haftar's sponsors decide to touch the Turkish air defense for strength.
        It is quite possible that in the coming weeks another escalation awaits us, which can easily be complemented by a new offensive by the SAA in the southern regions of Idlib and the introduction of the Egyptian army into Libya.

    Well, what about the machine-gun carts in the photo? wassat Are they going to threaten ships and aircraft? Generally speaking, Haftar's attempt to launch an anti-ship missile ended badly, how will he threaten the ships?
    Air defense, yes, he rebuilt the S-200 there, this is a serious threat to transport aircraft ...

      We decided. To both sides. They benefit from the situation of divided Libya. On both sides are their allies. Haftar is a US citizen and agent of the CIA, the PNS recognized by the US as the official government of Libya.

        5 days ago, the State Department on Khavtara lane, and the PNC brought to power the forces that staged a demonstrative execution of the American ambassador, a copy of the death of Muammar Katdafi. There, the devil himself will break his leg until you figure it out. They will choose whoever has more oil at the moment.

          They will help one or the other. It is necessary that there would be no peace in Libya and no one of the parties became independent and strong.

    That in the PNS, not everything is so rosy, the conclusion can be drawn from the reports of Turkish bloggers. To be more precise, by the complete absence of these reports. If there was something, they would have already been thrown here. And the question of who supplies Hawtar with information about the air situation, if Migari fly like this " brazenly. "

      He would have won allready But Turkish Army and "imporeted" terorists from Syria stoped it. I think that the Egyptian Army can save him
