Libyan army fights with ISIS in the Sirta region

19
The Reuters news agency reports on the battles of the Libyan army against ISIL militants. In this case, the Libyan army called actually scattered groups of armed persons who support the cabinet of ministers of Libya, recognized by the United Nations. In the material Reuters It is said that the Libyan armed forces inflicted several blows on the positions of the igilovtsevs in the Sirta area, closely pressing the militants to the city line.


Libyan army fights with ISIS in the Sirta region


It should be noted that the Libyan Sirte (aka Surt) has recently been under the control of terrorists from the so-called “Islamic State”. A significant part of the territory adjacent to the city, came under the control of the Libyan "army". In particular, over the past few days, ISIS militants have been driven out of two villages that are suburban for Sirte.

Washington has already announced that they are ready to supply the Libyan "army" with the necessary weapon to counter the militants LIH. At the same time, the US administration, to all appearances, does not care much about the fact that the Libyan “army” today is such that its “servicemen” are able to change their opinion about the support of the “government” at any moment. Thus, it is known from news agencies reports that several "army" detachments have already joined the igilovtsy, along with the available weapons and ammunition. Or is this the Washington plan? ..

      Self-taught inventors army lol .But those who are sitting on the streams of Libyan oil have the opportunity "to the eyeballs" to clean up the rifle detachments on all-terrain vehicles. And there are still plenty of remnants of the former luxury there, so they probably use heavy systems, but to a limited extent.AK-230 (30 mm)

        In Washington ... they are ready to supply the Libyan "army" with the necessary weapons to counter ISIS militants. At the same time, the American administration ... does not care much that the Libyan "army" ... is such that its "military personnel" are able to change their minds about the support of the "government" at any time. It is known that several "army" units have already joined the Ishilovites along with their weapons and ammunition. Or is this the Washington plan?.

        Yes! It is in THIS that Washington's "plan" consists. To be above the fight, to control the situation in Libya, to help both "ours" and "yours" - that is, continue to practice the so-called "controlled chaos" in BV, in North Africa and in the EU countries.

        It seems that in the US leadership there are no sensible people and they continue to think that they will not be available across the ocean.

          Russia will be ready to consider the issue of arms deliveries to the Libyan government only if the UN Security Council decides to lift the arms embargo in whole or in part. This was stated by Russian Ambassador to Libya Ivan Molotkov. According to him, it is too early to discuss that this will happen in the near future.https://russian.rt.com/article/302916-rossiya-rassmotrit-vopros-postavok-oruzhiy

          And how will the US get the Islamists? On inflatable boats across the Atlantic, they will not cross, as in the EU countries through the Mediterranean Sea. Americans will not give a green card to a sick person on an igilov’s head, they don’t duraki like the EU to accept everyone in a row. Green cards are actually not a lottery, they are given only to those specialists who may be of value to America and who are lacking in America.
          Attention is the question - what is the value of an Islamist for the United States to give him a green card?

    But Egypt does not waste time in vain. Judging by the map, it creates a deep security zone

    If Gaddafi had not been overthrown, then ISIS would not have appeared in Libya. First they destroy everything, and then they puzzle themselves with "help" against ISIS.

    This has already happened in Syria. Either the "pale-faced brother" is capable of stepping on a rake many times, or this is the hegemon's cunning plan. And the phrase "Libyan army" is currently an oxymoron. No, Hollywood with its "Captain America" ​​and "Superman" knocks off the brain in childhood and ... forever.

      No, they are very consistent and cynical towards their goal. They make a mess all over the world, supply weapons to everyone and everything, cheerfully watch it from across the ocean. The goal will be achieved when everyone except for the Indian Indians burns with a blue flame in the fire of the nationalist wars, or when all the others see the light and spit on the Indos. Until there is a slogan "Yankee nah" all over the world, and this should apply to everyone, including their diplomatic missions, which have become a hotbed of orange revolutions, this policy of a pyromaniac maniac will continue

    Yes, they need a good leader who would unite all the units loyal to the UN recognized government. In this case, it will be easier for them to fight with the militants.

    I noted for myself - in recent years, whoever in the east of the USA is given weapons, sooner or later they will take the path of terrorism.

    Isil and the USA are the same creatures of the devil. The United States even shed more blood and brought more evil than ISIS.

    I remember even under the USSR they said: "If not a single gun fires in the world within a week, the USA as a state will cease to exist!"
    It is understandable that the entire US economy is in conflict. Selling weapons, exporting gold reserves to its territory for preservation, lending to rebels (and then providing assistance for coming to power through these loans, and, of course, repaying loans with interest).
    For hegemony in a new world order, America needs world chaos!
