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 needed to establish relations with anyone ... - so it is with Libya, which has quite decent reserves of oil and gas ... and not with impoverished Syria ... in "relations" with which Russia has no prospects, except for the endless costly and endless burden ...
    - 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 everything predisposed to this ... - Russia forgave Libya $ 4,5 billion in debt, taking into account the fact that Russia will arrange supplies of Russian weapons to Libya ... - And this would be just the beginning ... opportunities for Russia ... -And Russia would not have to build ridiculous aircraft carriers just to get to Africa ... -But, alas ... Russia has contacted the impoverished "hopeless" Syria ...
    - Okay ... drove, maybe still somehow "succeed" ... with Libya ... although ...

    - 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 with this special forces is trying to fulfill the task of the United States ... - stake out the territory in Libya for the future American "presence" ... - Turkey itself will not pull out the maintenance of its troops in Libya ... - which is also very beneficial for Russia ... -Russia could become the master 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 ...
