Turkish Defense Minister named the option under which Haftar's forces "become legitimate targets" for the Turkish army in Libya

39

The Turkish Defense Minister, who visited Libya and took part in the graduation ceremony for the military academy cadets (trained by Turkish military instructors), spoke about the statement of Marshal Khalifa Haftar. To begin with, it should be noted that Khalifa Haftar is the commander of the Libyan National Army, and Turkey in Libya supports the forces of the Government of National Unity Fayez Sarraj, opposing the LNA.


Haftar said last week that as long as "the foot of the Turkish military tramples the Libyan soil, there will be no peace on it." According to the marshal, Turkey should withdraw its military contingent from Libya.

Haftar:

We will expel the Turkish military if they do not leave Libya themselves.

Today, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, commenting on these words of the Libyan Marshal, said that "Haftar's rebel forces" would become legitimate targets for the Turkish army and its Libyan allies if "Turkish military elements in Libya" attack. Thus, Akar named the option in which the Turkish army, together with the Libyan allies, attack the LNA forces.

Hulusi Acar:

Haftar is a war criminal. He and his henchmen should know that if even one Turkish element in Libya is attacked, Haftar will have nowhere to run.

At the same time, the Turkish Defense Minister did not specify who or what exactly he meant by the term "Turkish elements".

Earlier, Ankara transferred at least several hundred militants from Syria to Libya. A military transport was also used for the transfer. aviation Turkey. The active phase of hostilities with the advancement of the NTC forces and pro-Turkish armed formations continued until the announcement of the Egyptian President. Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi said at a certain moment that if the NTC forces move east of the positions occupied at that time, the Egyptian army will enter Libya and stop this advance. After Egypt delivered tanks forces of Marshal Haftar, who suffered significant losses in equipment and manpower in battles with Turkish-backed militants and armed formations of the PNS.

    Haftar cannot fight Turkey. Turkish troops should become "legitimate targets" for someone more powerful.

        Our friends: Aron, Voyaka even say that they receive military aid in the amount of a gigabyte from the United States. The joke is the current contract for Antei - 2500. That is, the export version of the C - 300 B4 (military analogue of the S-400). And the states turned their eyes to this

      In those parts, there is only one army - the Tsakhal (Red Army ) the strongest)))

        Erdogan will be punished by Egypt, he has a far from small army. And Israel may help a little. Intelligence data, unmarked UAVs, incomprehensible explosions of infrastructure and military warehouses. Everything is like in Syria.

          Why would Israel shit on Iran's most likely adversary?
          Especially, helping a neighbor with whom they have too much in common, in the sense of not fully shared.

          This is not Karabakh. Behind Haftar's back is Egypt.


          And Israel, on the contrary, is rather on the side of Egypt. More precisely, he certainly (sorry for the tafto) will not help Turkey.

        I will drum for the Tsakhal. But Egypt supports Haftar and is ready to kill the Turks if they cross the line. The Turks themselves slowed down because of the position of the descendants of the pharaohs

    Turkey is a hotbed and a haven of terrorists of all stripes, including ISIS
    And until the regime changes there, the Turks will embody their neo-Ottoman ideas.
    But someone has to pull out the sting from this regime too.

    One question - what did the Turks forget about the African state? At least Haftar is trying to restore statehood, the Ottomans are occupation troops, not at all legitimate.
    So let your mouth be silent, otherwise it stinks.

    Obviously, the Turks began to feel dizzy from the euphoria caused by the victory in Karabakh and the stake in the showdown with Haftar will be made on the use of UAVs, which, it must be admitted, have really proven themselves well. Only this "bitter" experience was taken into account by those who are behind Haftar, and therefore they must have paid attention not only to restoring the number of tanks, but also to strengthening air defense systems.
    And yet, yes, Saraja's powers expired back in 2019, and therefore Ankara's link to this figure in terms of explaining the legitimacy of the Turks in Libya does not seem to be a convincing argument for Haftar's LNA.

    Let's rip out of 83.1 million people. This is the same as, for example, in Germany. Turkey ranks 18th among the countries of the world and 10th in Asia. In 2019, Fitch Ratings made a forecast that in the next 5 years, the level of economic development in Turkey will grow by 4,8% annually. In terms of plastics production, Turkey, together with Italy and Germany, shares the second position in Europe and is one of the leading exporters of chrome ore and concentrates based on it. The reserves of this mineral are estimated at 26 million tons (4th place in the world). Compared to other applicants for accession to the EU (Bulgaria, Romania), the Turkish economy can be considered more powerful and stable, today all oil fields in the Republic belong to the state. ... They are managed by the Institute of Mining Research and Exploration. Ukraine, Russia, and the European Union are importers of textiles from Turkey. Come on go fight anika laughing

      So let it be plastic and release laughing , but do not climb with their under-Ottoman ambitions. They will soon be shut off by their own NATO allies, and their entire projected level of 4,8% will be covered with a copper basin. The United States is not satisfied with Erdogan's cooperation with Russia, so in the near future another color revolution can be expected in Turkey.

    The question is a little ... or rather, completely off topic. Recently, almost always the military in the photo in masks, most often in the most ordinary medical ones. But this is a non-statutory dress code, isn't it? I wonder how you managed to "crack" the Charter in this case?

      I will even say more, the Turkish military do not wear masks according to the regulations - the nose is open. For example, in supermarkets in Moscow, they are fined 5 rubles for this.
      It feels like a mess in the Turkish army, and they observe many things only for formality.
