2020-06-09
The Libyan military showed the destruction of the Turkish drone from the cabin zrpk "Pantsir-s".

To a media resource Avia.pro was the video, which captures the moment of destruction of Turkish percussion UAV Bayraktar TB-2, who was preparing to strike at the positions of the Libyan national army in one of the LDF-controlled areas. The drone was successfully detected by radar, and when approaching was immediately shot down by a fired missile.

In the presented video, you can see how the LNA soldiers successfully detected an approaching Turkish UAV, then, capturing the target, destroyed it with a fired missile, which, in fact, is the first demonstration of the use of the Pantsir-S RPC on the territory of Libya in a real military situation.

Given the data presented on the video, the Turkish military's unmanned aerial vehicle was detected at a great distance, although the rocket itself was launched only from a distance of 3-4 kilometers.

Given the interface used in the zrpc on the control panels of the combat systems of this complex, we are obviously talking about the "Pantsir-S1E" complex, while this fact proves that Turkish drones can not detect complexes located on the territory of Libya in advance, which is obvious .it is also associated with the use of military means of electronic suppression.

Egypt sent a huge helicopter carrier to Libya, equipped with Mi-24 and Apache attack helicopters
2020-06-10
One large-scale attack by Egypt will destroy half of the Turkish fighters in Libya.

A series of defeats of the Libyan national army in the battles against the forces Of the government of national unity, the Turkish military and Pro-Turkish terrorists, forced Egypt to come to the aid of Haftar's army, sending to Libya not only its heavy tanks, but also a huge helicopter carrier, which has already entered the territorial waters of Libya, carrying on its Board a huge number of attack helicopters of Russian and American production.
"In the area of the Egyptian city of Mersa Matruh, where a large military column was previously recorded moving towards the border with Libya, a Mistral-type helicopter carrier of the Egyptian Navy was seen. The appearance of the ship in this area may be associated with the build - up of the military group in the Libyan direction," sources say, publishing the corresponding photo.

It should be clarified that previously, Egypt has used its attack helicopters for applying crushing blow to the insurgents and forces the STUMP, whereby the latter lost nearly two dozen pieces of equipment and a hundred men, which suggests that a series of unexpected victories for the forces of the STUMP, may complete overnight the massive defeat in the entire campaign.

"A large-scale attack by attack helicopters of the Egyptian air force can destroy half of the Turkish militants, which will give Haftar's army a chance to take control of a huge territory almost without resistance," the analyst notes.

В Ливии показали захваченного в плен российского военнослужащего

Да уж, вот это вляпались грамотеи! Документ времен СССР, выданный на Украине на женское имя. Сейчас этой женщине, судя по документу, 42 года. У нас все военные такие? Может я чего не знаю? У меня сын в данное время служит в армии, должен уволиться осенью. Может мне его отдадут в цветастом платьишке?:lol2::thup:

A captured Russian soldier was shown in Libya
2020-06-11
In Libya, they reported on the capture of a Russian serviceman. Turkish militants said they captured a Russian serviceman who fought in Libya on the side of the Libyan national army. The terrorists did not show the captured Russian serviceman, however, they showed his documents that "directly indicate" that Russia actively supports Haftar's army. The documents included a photo of a captured "Russian serviceman" and his documents, in particular, a birth certificate. The material was quickly distributed by the media, however, by the militants found an obvious discrepancy – first, we are talking about a citizen of Ukraine, and secondly, no matter how strange it may seem, the name of a typical "Russian serviceman" - Inna Nikolaevna. Such a fake issued by Turkish militants was instantly ridiculed by the Russian segment of social networks, and the militants were asked to learn Russian better to avoid such a disgrace. This is not the first time that Turkish terrorists spread false information about the presence of Russian military personnel in Libya, thus generating a wave of scandals in the West and, as a result, accusations against Russia.

Yes, that's what the literates got into! A Soviet-era document issued in Ukraine in a woman's name. Now this woman, according to the document, is 42 years old. Are all our military like this?

Греческие военные штурмом захватили турецкий военный корабль с оружием
2020-06-11

Война расползается. Недавно Египет, теперь Греция подключается. Интересна позиция НАТО, хотя нового наверно ничего не будет, ведь конфликт между Грецией и Турцией уже очень давний.

Greek military stormed a Turkish military ship with guns
2020-06-11
The Greek Navy intercepted a Turkish warship Packed with weapons for terrorists.

The active confrontation between Greece and Turkey on the Mediterranean sea forced Athens to demonstrate full determination to the Turkish military, as a result of which the Greek military stormed and successfully captured a Turkish warship that was carrying out illegal weapons transportation to Libya.

At the moment, information is received that portable anti-aircraft missile systems, anti-aircraft missile systems, armored vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, electronic suppression devices and a large number of small arms and ammunition were found on Board the ship.

"The Greek Navy intercepted a Turkish cargo ship suspected of "transporting weapons and ammunition" to the coast of Libya. Sources have indicated that a Greek vessel involved in the Italian-led ireni Maritime operation found a Turkish cargo ship off the coast of Libya with "weapons and ammunition" on it, although it is unknown. For its part, Turkish media reported that the Greek Navy intercepted a Turkish commercial cargo ship escorted by a Turkish frigate bound for Libya. They added that the Turkish frigate issued an ultimatum to the Greek Navy after the Greek helicopter took off from its ships, "al-Masdar News reported.

In fact, Greece has demonstrated its readiness to confront Turkey in the Mediterranean, leaving the latter in a very serious position, since Egypt has previously declared its readiness to sink Turkish ships that supply weapons to Libya,
Греческие военные штурмом захватили турецкий военный корабль с оружием

The war is spreading. Recently Egypt, now Greece is connecting. The position of NATO is interesting, although there will probably be nothing new, because the conflict between Greece and Turkey is already very old.

УПС! Не успел поправить предыдущее сообщение, кончилось время. Так что нижеизложенное относится к предыдущему сообщению.
В других источниках пишут, что никакого штурма не было. Греки подняли вертолет, взлетели, раздалось предупреждение с турецкого фрегата, и они полетели обратно. Где правда, как всегда покажет время.

Oops! I didn't have time to correct the previous message, time ran out. So the following applies to the previous message.
Other sources say that there was no assault. The Greeks picked up a helicopter, took off, a warning was issued from the Turkish frigate, and they flew back. Where the truth is, as time will always tell.

A couple of days ago this was posted on SOTT (by JoanneM) - article has a couple of videos at the end:


Briefly:
PLEASE NOTE - you will see in the news media that Haftar is a warlord this is a LIE, you will see that his troops are militias this is a LIE. This is PROPAGANDA against the valiant Libyan fighters who are military men of the Libyan National Army. fighting to free their country of terrorist occupation.
Starting yesterday, with help from many friends, the LNA began to target all Turkish and terrorist mercenary sites in and around Misurata, they came in under stealth, the Turks could not see them and they took back many areas. They destroyed and captured Turkish weapons that by the way are weapons of NATO. Misurata was with no electricity last I heard, Sirte is with 10,000 LNA troops to protect it. Two Turkish submarines off the coast of Libya have been disabled and will be taken by the Egyptian army out of Libyan waters. The Egyptian army is now standing behind the LNA and they are a HUGE force.

The LNA is back in force and supported now by many friends who actually understand that there can be no negotiating with terrorists and illegitimate regimes of terror.

17 турецких истребителей не смогли войти в воздушное пространство Ливии из-за российских и советских систем ПВО. Видео

17 Turkish fighter jets were unable to enter Libyan airspace due to Russian and Soviet air defense systems. Video
2020-06-13
Russian and Soviet air defenses scared the Turkish fighter strike group – the Turkish air force retreated in disgrace.

On the eve of the day before, as part of an attempt by Turkish warplanes to enter the Libyan airspace, according to preliminary data, in order to strike the forces of the Libyan national army, led by Khalifa Haftar, Turkish fighters were unable to break into the airspace controlled by Russian and Soviet air defense means – after receiving notification of entering the zone of destruction, Turkish warplanes were forced to urgently retire and go in the opposite direction, realizing that each of the aircraft that appeared within the radius of hitting the air defense systems of the Libyan national army is a potential pile of scrap metal, especially against the background of the fact that the LNA has Buk-M2E complexes that have a significantly longer range of destruction than the missiles in service with Turkish f-16 fighters.

For obvious reasons, Turkey said that it was an ongoing exercise, but Ankara did not explain exactly what Turkish warplanes were doing more than 2000 kilometers from the Turkish border.

However, later there was an approximate flight path of Turkish fighters, and as you can see, the latter not only did not violate the airspace of Libya, but did not even approach it

На авиабазе в Ливии вновь замечены российские истребители и даже ядерный бомбардировщик Ту-22
2020-06-19

Самолеты вполне узнаваемы. Про Ту-22 хочу сказать. Такая модель, как на фото у нас не летает уже лет 30. Первые модели с двигателями на хвостовом киле считались довольно неудачными и после модернизации их быстренько заменили на свежие.

Russian fighter jets and even a Tu-22 nuclear bomber have been spotted again at an air base in Libya
2020-06-19
New "evidence" of the transfer of Russian fighters and bombers to Libya has been published.
The center for strategic and international studies published satellite images that allegedly confirm that Russia continues to transfer its combat aircraft to Libya. to provide the necessary support to the army of Caliph Haftar.

Unusual is the presence in the photos of the su-24 bomber – to date, Libya does not have a single aircraft of this model, however, much more remarkable is the discovery at the al-Jufra air base of a long-range strategic Tu-22 bomber capable of carrying nuclear weapons.

Satellite images show the transport of a MiG-29 fighter, the appearance of a su-24 bomber on the runway, and a long-range Tu-22 strategic bomber in hiding. The latter is listed as abandoned, however, until recently it was believed that all aircraft of this model have already been destroyed.
Among other things, the Pantsir-S1 zrpc was also seen at the Libyan air base, however, taking into account the quality of satellite images, it was not possible to establish whether we are talking about Russian versions of these complexes or expert versions.

The planes are quite recognizable. About the Tu-22 I want to say. This model, as in the photo, we do not fly for 30 years. The first models with engines on the tail keel were considered quite unsuccessful and after modernization they were quickly replaced with fresh ones.

Американские самолёты и беспилотники будут сбиваться без предупреждения! Хафтар объявил над Ливией бесполётную для американцев зону

American planes and drones will shoot down without warning! Haftar declared a no-fly zone for Americans over Libya
2020-06-23
The Libyan army has declared its readiness to shoot down American planes and drones without warning.

Washington's active support for the forces of the national unity Government resulted in the Libyan national army. Led by Khalifa Haftar, declared a no – fly zone over the territory of the country, when entering which, any air objects will be attacked without warning-the ban applies to the United States.

"The representative of the Libyan national army (LNA), Ahmed al-Mismari, announced on Sunday that their forces have established a no-fly zone over Northern and Central Libya. In a message posted on Facebook, Mismari showed a map showing the area where the new no-fly zone will be implemented. Mismari noted that this region, which stretches from the Eastern part of Sirte to the city of al-Hisha, is considered a no-fly zone that can only be used by the Libyan national air force, "the Arab news outlet Al-Masdar News reported.

This zone, obviously, can be used freely by the allies of the Libyan national army, and, most notably, the fact that the introduction of unmanned airspace became known only a few hours before the visit of the American delegation, which arrived to discuss some military plans with the forces of the Government of national unity.

According to analysts, the Libyan national army, Egypt, the UAE and a number of other allies of Haftar, it is likely that we can talk about Russia, intend to launch a large-scale military operation to liberate the territory of Libya within the next week.

Советские баллистические ракеты ОТРК "Эльбрус" десятками стягиваются в Сирт

Soviet ballistic missiles otrk "Elbrus" dozens are being pulled into Sirte
2020-07-01
The Libyan national army is urgently pulling down ballistic weapons in Sirte.

This afternoon, in the vicinity of Libyan Sirte, a military column was again seen transporting at least 12 SCUD-B ballistic missiles, which are an upgraded version of the Soviet Elbrus complexes, capable of hitting any land and sea targets, which gives Haftar's army an incredible advantage in the case of using such complexes.

At the moment, it is still unknown who exactly is carrying out the transfer of ballistic missiles to Libya, however, since the late nineties, Libya has practically no missiles or launchers, but at the same time, Russia still has such complexes, which raises some suspicions from the Turkish side that the ballistic missiles could have been delivered to Libya by Russian aircraft, although there is no reason to believe that this is true, at the moment.

Experts note that if the army of Khalifa Haftar decides to use these missile systems, the forces of the Government of national accord will lose the war in Libya within a few days, while, in the case of Erdogan's intervention, it may end in very epic losses for Turkey, since there are at least five Turkish warships in the zone of destruction of the "Elbrus".

"Сметает корабли в радиусе 600 километров": Россия отправила "Бастионы" на вооружение армии Хафтара

"Sweeps away ships within a radius of 600 kilometers": Russia sent "Bastions" to the Haftar army
2020-07-03
The Libyan national army will deliver coastal defense systems to Libya.

Arab media, citing official sources in Egypt, reports that Russia has agreed with the Libyan national army to begin supplying Bastion coastal missile systems to protect against a planned attack by Turkey and Italy on Libya. It is known that Egypt is asking for faster deliveries of Russian coastal missile systems capable of hitting sea targets within a radius of 600 kilometers, as Ankara plans to launch a military operation in the coming weeks.

It seems that we are talking about selling the Bastion complexes to the Egyptian army, but they will immediately be transferred to The haftar army.

"Military representatives of Egypt and Russia said that Cairo asked Moscow to speed up the delivery of coastal defense systems,in particular the Bastion, to the Libyan national army. Sources said that the Bastion system is able to protect the Egyptian coast with a length of more than 600 km from potential enemy landings, since the complex is deployed to combat sites in just five minutes, "al-Masdar news reports.

It should be noted that according to the latest satellite images, at least five Turkish warships and one Italian frigate are located off the coast of Libya, which poses a very serious threat to the Libyan national army, but thanks to the Russian "Bastions", Libya will be able to "lead" Turkish ships even in Turkish territorial waters.

Российские МиГ-29 нанесли удары по авиабазе Аль-Ватия, уничтожив турецкие ПВО MIM-23 Hawk

Russian MiG-29s hit al-Vatiya air base, destroying Turkish air defense system MIM-23 Hawk
2020-07-05
MiG-29 fighters of the Libyan air force famously dealt with the Turkish air defense systems MIM-23 "Hawk".

The air force of the Libyan national army, using MiG-29 fighters, which were recently transferred to the haftar army, successfully cleared the al-Vatiya air base, arranging a blow to the Turkish air defense means. As a result of the launch of 9 missiles, all four Turkish air defense complexes were destroyed, while two tanks and one of the shelters where, according to preliminary data, Turkish attack drones were located were destroyed. It is noteworthy that the MIM-23 "Hawk" complexes protecting the air base were not only unable to oppose anything to the Russian-made aircraft, but did not even notice their approach. On the satellite images presented, you can see that the previously located positions of the Turkish MIM-23 "Hawk" SAMS, which by the way, were transferred to the al-Vatiya air base less than a week ago, no longer exist. According to sources, at least four combat aircraft of the Libyan air force carried out nine missile strikes directly from the zone of destruction of Turkish complexes.
Earlier, there was a video that allegedly captured the strike of MiG-29 fighters, but, as it turned out, it is a video made several years ago, although the fact of the strike by the Libyan air force is confirmed by satellite images.

It should be noted that reliable data on where the LNA air force got the MiG-29 fighters are still not announced, but earlier Syrian sources reported that we are talking about Russian fighters delivered to Libya through the territory of Syria.

Ukrainian electronic warfare systems and radars were successfully destroyed by a fighter air strike in Libya
2020-07-06
Ukraine lost the best radar and electronic warfare equipment in Libya.

Ukrainian electronic warfare and radar systems located on the territory of the al-Watiya air base were lost as a result of a Mirage-2000 strike (the latter were mistaken for MiG-29s – ed.) by the UAE air force from the territory of Egypt. According to Russian sources, we may be talking about the radio intelligence station "Kolchuga-M", which allowed us to track the positional areas of the zrpc "Pantsir-S1E", and the p-180U radar (an upgraded version of the P-18 radar), which were previously delivered to Libya at the request of the Turkish side. Both complexes are unique developments and all of them were successfully lost in Libya as a result of just one powerful attack.

"It is noted that as a result of the RAID on the air base located 130 km from Tripoli, there were no injuries, but the air defense, radar and electronic warfare systems were damaged. According to the Agency, the United Arab Emirates air force, which is based in neighboring Egypt, is behind the attack. At the same time, the government of national accord of Libya does not officially comment on this information and what happened. Information that the UAE air force was involved in the attack was spread on social networks by the spokesman for the operation Volcano of anger headquarters of the PNS forces, Abdulmalik al-Medeni. According to him, Mirage 2000-9 aircraft of the UAE air force took part in the RAID on the al-Watiya air base, which took off from the Egyptian air base "Sidi al-Barani", located 90 km from the border with Libya, "the Reporter reports.

Among other things, it reports that the losses include at least three MIM-23 Hawk anti-aircraft missile systems, which could not even notice the approaching fighters. The Turkish side has already confirmed the attack, but did not comment on the devastating blow.

Russian "Bastions" in Libya cut off the path of American aircraft carriers in the Black sea
2020-07-06
Russian Coastal missile Systems "Bastion" cut off American aircraft carriers from access to the waters of the Black sea.

The appearance on the territory of Libya of Russian coastal missile systems "Bastion" was the reason that American aircraft carriers are unlikely to appear in the Central part of the Mediterranean sea with any provocative actions against Russia. One such complex allows you to control the sea space of 100 thousand meters. taking into account media data on the transfer of three such complexes to Libya, Russia will be able to control the sea area of several hundred thousand square kilometers, and this is not to mention the fact that "Bastions" can also be placed on the coast of Syria.

"Military representatives of Egypt and Russia said that Cairo asked Moscow to speed up the delivery of coastal defense systems, in particular the Bastion missile defense system, to the Libyan national army. Sources said that the Bastion system is able to protect the coast with a length of more than 600 km from potential enemy landings, since the complex is deployed to combat sites in just five minutes, "the AMN newspaper reports.

Washington a week earlier already stated that if Russia creates its new stronghold in Libya, the North Atlantic Alliance may start very serious problems, since most of the Mediterranean sea, and, consequently, the exit to the Persian Gulf and the exit to the Black sea, will be controlled by Russia.

The Russian side does not officially comment on the delivery of Bastion coastal missile systems to Libya, but it is obvious that against the background of regular shipments of cargo and military transport aircraft from Syria to this North African country, Russia is extremely interested in partnership, including in military terms, relations with the LNA.

После удара МиГ-29, от турецкого комплекса ПВО осталась лишь многометровая воронка
2020-07-13

After the MiG-29 strike, only a multi-meter funnel remained from the Turkish air defense system
2020-07-13
A precise strike by a MiG-29 fighter left only a multi-meter funnel from the Turkish MIM-23 "hawk" complex.

Satellite images of the al-Vatiya air base captured by the Turkish military appeared on the Network, where Turkish MIM-23 "Hawk" air defense assets were later deployed. Only a few days later, after the MiG-29 strike, and this information was confirmed by representatives of the Libyan national army, only multi-meter craters appeared on the site of deployed air defense systems, and the wreckage of Turkish complexes was scattered within a radius of several hundred meters.
On the satellite images presented, you can see that Russian-made fighters accurately struck the deployment sites of Turkish air defense assets. Apparently, air strikes were applied with the utmost precision, and although it was earlier claimed that the attack was carried out by fighters Mirage 2000 UAE air force, the sources specify that the act that air force fighter jets the LDF, taking into account that the accuracy of air strikes, suggests that he worked it was the MiG-29.

It should be noted that in place of the destroyed MIM-23 "Hawk" complexes, Turkey has already deployed Ukrainian-made s-125 complexes at the al-Vatiya air base, and therefore, new LNA strikes may follow both within the next few days and within the next few hours.

Russia working on immediate Libya ceasefire with Turkey - Interfax
See the source image


July 8, 2020 - Russia and Turkey are working on an immediate ceasefire agreement for the conflict in Libya, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted as saying on Wednesday by the Interfax news agency.

Lavrov said the Libyan National Army (LNA), which Russia backs, is ready to sign a ceasefire document and hopes that Turkey will manage to convince the country’s internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) to do the same.


Russia & Turkey working on ways to achieve truce in Libya, despite Tripoli’s unwillingness to stop fighting – Lavrov

Libya’s eastern-based parliament has called for Egypt to directly intervene in the country’s civil war to counter Turkish support for the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA), based in the capital Tripoli.


Eastern-based Libyan parliament asks Egypt to intervene in war




July 14, 2020 - In a statement late on Monday, the House of Representatives based in the eastern port of Tobruk said Egyptian backing was needed to stave off what it described as a Turkish invasion and occupation.

The statement underscores the growing stakes in Libya, where battle lines solidified earlier this month near the city of Sirte after the GNA and Turkey repelled a yearlong assault on Tripoli by the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA).

Any major new escalation could risk igniting a direct conflict in Libya among the foreign powers that have already poured in weapons and fighters in violation of an arms embargo. The LNA is backed by the United Arab Emirates, Russia and Egypt.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has already warned the army might enter Libya if the GNA and its Turkish allies renew an assault on Sirte, a central coastal city seen as the gateway to Libya’s main oil export terminals.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed in a phone call on Tuesday to work more closely in Libya to bring about lasting stability in the country, the Turkish presidency said.

Ankara has previously said the United States needs to play a more active role in the North African country. The White House said the two leaders underscored the “need for a negotiated settlement of regional issues.”

Erdogan, Trump agree to work more closely in Libya to ensure stability: Turkish presidency

Control over oil, the main source of state revenue, has emerged as the biggest prize in the conflict, with eastern forces having imposed a blockade on production and exports since January.

Egypt will not stand idle in the face of any direct threat to Egyptian and Libyan security, President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi said on Thursday, after lawmakers allied to commander Khalifa Haftar urged Cairo to intervene militarily in Libya's civil war.

Sisi says Egypt won't stand idle in Libya if security is threatened
July 16, 2020 - Tribal leaders who flew in from Haftar’s Benghazi stronghold told Sisi at a meeting in Cairo that they authorized him and the Egyptian army to intervene in their country to counter what they described as the “Turkish invasion and terrorism”.

The meeting, broadcast on state TV, illustrates the growing regional stakes in Libya, divided since 2014 between areas held by an internationally recognised government in Tripoli, backed by Turkey, and a rival eastern administration, backed by the UAE, Russia and Egypt.


Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan denounced Egypt and the United Arab Emirates on Friday for supporting forces based in eastern Libya, after Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met Libyan tribesmen who called for Cairo to intervene in the civil war.

Turkey's Erdogan says Egypt's actions in Libya are illegal
July 17, 2020 - Turkey has been providing military aid to the Tripoli-based government in the Libya conflict, while Egypt, the UAE and Russia have backed its foes in a rival administration based in the east.

Asked about the possibility of Egyptian intervention, Erdogan said Turkey would maintain its support for the internationally recognised Government of National Accord (GNA).

“Steps taken by Egypt here, especially their siding with the putschist Haftar, show they are in an illegal process,” he said. He also described the approach of the United Arab Emirates as “piratical”.
