Marshal Haftar announces ultimatum to Turkish-backed troops


Despite the military assistance that Turkey provides to the Government of National Accord, the head of the Libyan National Army, Field Marshal Haftar, is quite confident in his abilities.


According to Al Arabia TV channel, citing a statement by the official representative of the LNA, Ahmed al-Mismari, Haftar issued an ultimatum to armed groups supporting the PNS and Sarajah, which requires them to leave Sirte and Tripoli within 72 hours.

Field Marshal promised that during this time the LNA will not attack the position of the PNS.

In a statement, Al-Mismari also noted that Saraj’s attempt to change the situation in Libya with the help of the Turkish army is reminiscent of “an attempt by a drowning man to grab onto a straw.”

Recall that since the start of the attack on Tripoli by Haftar, nine months have passed, but during this time he could not achieve a decisive advantage. After a rapid jerk at the beginning of the offensive, the LNA was bogged down in battles under the Libyan capital.

According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, expressed during a large press conference on Thursday, the best solution to the Libyan issue would be the cessation of hostilities and the agreement of the warring parties on the division of powers in the management of Libya.

    - Well, if Russia had to establish relations with anyone ... -so this is with Libya, which has fairly decent oil and gas reserves .. and not with the impoverished Syria .., in the "relations" with which Russia has no prospects, except for the endless expensive and never-ending tyagomotina ...
    - And with Libya, Russia would have excellent prospects ... -Russia would simply kill two birds with one stone ... -It would open for itself a new gate to Africa and at the same time strengthen its position in the Middle East. East ...
    - Yes, and that’s what it all predisposed ...- Russia forgave Libya $ 4,5 billion of debt, given that Russia will establish supplies of Russian weapons to Libya ... -And that would be just the beginning .., and the endless ones opened ahead opportunities for Russia ... -And Russia would not have to build ridiculous aircraft carriers just to get to Africa ... -But, alas ..., Russia got in touch with the impoverished "unpromising" Syria ...
    - Okay ... we drove through, maybe somehow "succeed" ... with Libya ... though ...

    - As for Turkey, then ... then ... then ... where is Turkey, and where is Libya ... -If Turkey sends its special forces to Libya, then this will obviously not be enough ... -And Turkey will have to to transfer the land army by sea ...- and this is quite far ... and expensive ... -And what next ???
    - Most likely, Turkey is trying to fulfill the US mission with this special forces ... - to stake out territory in Libya for the future American "presence" ... -Turkey itself will not extend the content of its troops in Libya ... -that is also very beneficial for Russia ... -Russia could become the mistress of the situation there ...
    - Yes, if Russia spent as much resources on Libya as on useless Syria ... then ... then ... then ... then Russia would already have quite significant material benefits ...
