According to RIA "News", with reference to the agency RiderLibyan Special Forces Commander Vanis Buhamad said that Libya’s special forces are taking the side of the rebellious General Khalifa Haftar.


Earlier it was reported that a military air base, located in the east of Libya near the city of Tobruk, joined the forces of Haftar.

Last Friday, Haftar-controlled units attacked Islamist positions in Benghazi without informing the current authorities in Tripoli. The clashes killed 43 people, more than 100 people were injured. During a speech on one of the TV channels, Haftar made a promise to “clean off the terrorists” the largest city in the east of Libya. According to the current Libyan authorities, the clashes in Benghazi are "an attempted coup d'état."

Sunday in the capital of Libya occurred armed clashes between the militants of extremist groups and supporters of General Haftar. The forces of the rebellious general occupied the parliament building, from which all deputies were evacuated. During the fighting killed more than 50 people. Algeria, the UAE and Saudi Arabia reported closing their embassies in Tripoli. Until 25 May, the operation of the airport in Benghazi was suspended.

      In my opinion, a scenario is developing in Egypt. The people are fed up with Islamism and their orders and are starting to support the general.

      Unfortunately, the Ukrainian military cannot decide who they are with. Like the majority in this country, "their house is on the edge."

      It seems like a new Gaddafi, many of the military respected him, and not all sold out to "crap.
      Comparison with Ukraine I think is not appropriate in this case. These snot will not start, everything will be tough, if not cruel
      the result of the next adventure mattresses

      I think no! Not the new Gaddafi! It's just that the West will continue to support the policy of chaos in North Africa, preventing one leader from firmly entrenched! This "whistle dance" will be in Tunisia, in Egypt, and in Libya for a long time! Otherwise, why were there any "attempts" to "give birth" to the "Arab Spring" ?! "Controlled chaos"!

    The Arabs also call all squares Maidans. "Martyrs' Square (Arabic: ميدان الشهداء, Maidan ash-Shuhada, the name of the PNS); also Green Square (الساحة الخضراء, Maidan al-Khadra, the name of the Jamahiriya), Independence Square (ميدان الاستقدال)" , and originally (during the Italian colonial rule), known as Piazza Italia ("Piazza Italia") - is the landmark and main square of the city of Tripoli, Libya. " bully It looks like the "ancient" protoUkry relatives to the Arabs. lol

    Does anyone know what the differences were between Haftar and Gaddafi? It seems to be unprincipled.

    To be honest, I don’t care much about what happens in tripoli, they themselves extended their country and their people, there was dust and naming left from a prosperous state! It’s watching how their standard of living will fall to zero, that they’re sitting about what they’re thinking, it’s not like the thought doesn’t come to mind that tomorrow it will be even worse, everything that under Yanukovych seemed to them to be the best time of their life!

    For Libya, a general at the head of the country is better than Islamists and other riffraff. For the neighbors of Libya, it is not yet clear.

    General Haftar was tired of this whole bloody brothel. If the tribes inhabiting Libya support him, then there is a chance to normalize the situation in Libya.

    for special forces to go over to Haftar’s side, general authority alone is not enough. Here grandmas are needed and not small !!! Most likely the West has found a person who can provide them relatively safe access to hydrocarbons ... And this person has little to do with Gaddafi, he is closer to Saakashvili or Yaytsenyuk.

    I wonder for whom from the NATO coalition the general works ???
    And the fact that the Islamists in such conflicts are just cannon fodder ... it's clear ... a fresh example of Egypt.
