ISIS militants shot down Libyan national air force aircraft over Derna city

38
On the eve of the major international news agencies have spread information that some "unknown aircraft" carried out an attack on the positions of ISIS militants in the Libyan city of Derna, located on the Mediterranean coast. Earlier, “unknown aircraft” launched a series of strikes against ISIS militants near Tobruk, which today has the Libyan government, partly recognized by various UN member states. Tobruk claimed the death of at least two civilians and the destruction of several private houses and a local mosque.


Information Service www.afrigatenews.net reports that the attack on ISIL (on the group "Ansar al-Sharia" which swore by ISIS) was struck in the so-called 400 quarter of the city of Derna. About what the results of the air strike on Derna, not yet reported.

Meanwhile, the Libyan media write that it was in the area of ​​Derna that the plane of the Libyan national air force was shot down the day before. We are talking about Soviet-made aircraft (it is known that this is a modification of the third-generation MiG). Perhaps MiG23 (tail number 6132).

ISIS militants shot down Libyan national air force aircraft over Derna city


According to Associated Press, it was from this plane that an ISIS attack could have been carried out, but the militants shot down the plane with the help of anti-aircraft guns. The representative of the Libyan government claims that the pilot managed to eject and "safely land." The question of whether the serviceman of the Libyan national air force landed on the territory controlled by anyone remains open.

            While the first civil war in Libya was fought for power - for the coup - and ended in October 2011 of the year with the murder of M. Gaddafi, the second the war is now being waged for the inheritance of the Jamahiriya, for sources of oil and oil terminals, for zones of influence and REFUGEE channels of REFUGEES to Europe. Its members are both armed groups fighting against the Gaddafi regime, and former supporters of this regime. In addition, thousands of jihadists from Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and other Arab countries arrived in Libya.

            Libyan oil production fell from 1,6 million barrels per day to less than 0,5 million
            This is extremely small in order to support the economy of Libya.

            In 2014, the capital of Libya passed into the hands of the Islamic alliance, which was supported by the old parliament (General National Congress) and the government it created, which were dominated by Islamists. Therefore in Libya now irreconcilable dualism.
            It is noteworthy that the rebellious general Khalif Haftar, a former associate of Gaddafi, who fled from him because of internal strife in the United States, and who had already carried out a successful operation in Libya against the Jahhadists in 2014, opposes the legitimate government of Libya. It is believed that he is associated with the CIA, supported by Washington and Cairo.

          but using anti-aircraft guns the plane fighters shot down
          Famously. Or maybe write that from a slingshot? MiG-23. Maximum speed, km / h:
          off the ground xnumx
          at high altitude 2500
          Practical range, km
          Practical ceiling, m 18000

            So he walked at maximum speed. Most likely did the sunset at 300-400km / h and caught.

            Or even he fell. There are no resources there, there is no field supervision, repairs are being made from improvised materials by some muddy ARZ pensioners from Ukraine.

          "unknown planes"

          The war is going on so "right" that nobody wants to acknowledge the authorship of the raids ..

        In Libya, anarchy

        ---------------------
        Why did we agree with this fucking UN resolution No. 1973? It was clear to Hemp that they would break the country into the trash and nobody would observe anything. The British CAC and the American rangers have been running in the country for a long time, building up Gaddafi's military resistance and they only need air support, as ours is doing in Syria now. Gouged a beautiful country into the trash. And Gaddafi was a quite moderate uncle, shook hands with everyone, gave oil at affordable prices, defended against refugees, did not put forward any radical ideas. They attributed to him the downing of a civilian plane, so civilian planes shot down everything for their political purposes, both the States and Ukraine.

    with the help of anti-aircraft guns the plane fighters shot down

    Another example is not working at low altitudes. It is strange that in Libya, after all that has happened, the Air Force has remained and there is someone to fly.

      They still have one squadron of MIGs and one Mirage.
      In general, the Libyan Air Force has never been distinguished by their combat effectiveness.

      Well, they have Mi-35 and Mirages and MiGs. The latter fly on parole and themselves may completely fall. Mirages like the French immediately after Gaddafi restored.

      At Dawn of Libya, even a MiG-25 was found and he flew an 2-3 departure, and then died ... They also have MiG-23 and Mi-8.

      IG is not in flight condition yet.

      Why do they need us? The DPRK is still armed with weapons of the 60s, and we wrote it off is bad?
      Maybe the armored personnel carrier 60 should be left in service.

        BTR 60, what has been done wrong? MACHINE still like Afghanistan showed itself. When at that time 70 could not climb up the hill, the old man puffing climbed to where and 80ke did not dream. I don’t advise arguing, I went through myself in the 80s.

    Such single-handed raids without the use of precision weapons and careful reconnaissance of targets is more a demonstration of strength than an effective operation. Well, the result is logical - it was done. Modern MANPADS - a thing quite effective.

      What is the WTO? All that is flies. There is nothing else. The Babahs in Derna have now launched an offensive along the coast towards Tobruk. In Sirte captured all the oil terminals going to the port of Es Cider. The port is practically over. And this is a powerful blow to Libyan Dawn - it was for him that money for oil came from the port.

    Do you have a national government and national air forces in Libya? However, you won’t understand who is flying what and who is bombing ... Accordingly, someone who shot down someone is also not clear request

      There are 3 large groups:
      Dawn of Libya - the nationalists took Tripoli and the whole West under themselves. They are already fighting in Benghazi.
      The official government - they moved and stayed in Tobruk, and then only Egypt. Actually voices what Haftar needs. Haftar - Supreme Commander-in-Chief of All Libya, and the UN was forced to admit such a request, I’ll leave under threat, and you yourself will understand further.
      IG - actively expanding near Sirte, survived a powerful attack near Derna and went on a counterattack, actively recruiting new tribes under the Caliphate.

      Al-Qaeda Marib - in the south of Libya, mostly Bedouin now spuds. Well and the rest are the small groups that divided 2 / 3 of Libya, mostly off the coast.

    Dear, in Libya, this is a real mess, the government is ghostly, remember how the American special esz sent home, many groups, with directly opposite goals, adding a bunch of weapons here, which is why DAISH chose this country and is successfully mastering it, without direct military intervention in Libya , there will be a new even more serious caliphate., and there is Europe at hand. Gaddafi’s daughter is trying to join forces against militants, but the West does not like the person herself, again the same rake, fussing with politics, to the detriment of security and not only of Libya, but and neighboring countries, including Europe

      It is doubtful that the Daughter will be able to:
      At Dawn of Libya, all places are occupied. Gaddafi does not wait there, the more they are the most ardent revolutionaries and fighters with the regime in the past.
      Egypt is behind Haftar and Haftar is recognized by the UN as the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of All Libya, plus a government officially recognized by the West is working under it, which receives some help, money, and minimal trade.

      Where should my daughter go? Without an army. Among the Bedouions will not work - there is al-Qaeda Marib. Small gangs will soon sell it to the same Haftar.

    One fig, do not understand who for whom and with whom there. And I feel sorry for the MiG. Although the opinions about the twenty-third are contradictory, but, we can say, the era is the most massive aircraft with variable wing geometry. The last women are finishing.
