Following the example of Syria: Turkey began the construction of a military base near Tripoli


Al Arabiya (UAE), citing military sources, reports that Turkey is in talks with the Government of National Accord (PNS) of Libya on the construction of its military base near Tripoli. It is specified that special forces and units of the Turkish Navy can be deployed on the indicated base.


In addition, even the runway and the communications center of the Turkish military can be created at the mentioned base. In turn, the PNS wants to buy military aircraft and drones from Ankara.

It should be noted that the UAE in this conflict supports the opposite side - the Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar and reporting to the country's parliament, which sits in Tobruk.

At the same time, the channel informed that Ankara had already deployed militants from Somalia and Kenya to Libya, and also agreed with the PNS on the supply of air defense.

Necessary to remindthat before this, two frigates of the Turkish Navy approached Tripoli. After which the unloading of personnel and armored vehicles of the Turkish army began.

It should be added that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan repeatedly made harsh and belligerent statements to Haftar, and also promised to help the PNS. How long will Turkey be able to maintain its simultaneous participation in two armed conflicts at once (in Syria and Libya) - time will tell.

    What's the point? Idlib built a lot of things, helped? The Syrian army is advancing, and the Turks are sitting at their bases behind the fence.

    agreed with the PNS on the supply of air defense

    Do Turks have air defense? This is the weakest link in the Turkish army. What can they supply besides the old anti-aircraft guns?

    - What about Syria ??? - There, Turkey has everything for free and even profitable ... - Everything is close at hand - both the border and Syrian oil ... and the Russian guards guarding the Turkish border ... - It is Russia that needs to financially strain and constantly make "walking across the three seas "... or by air" through three states "... - This is where everything comes in at a pretty penny - and every day ... - Does anyone know how much only one day of the" Syrian company "costs the Russian budget ?? ? - Even if we do not take into account the maintenance of the Khmeimim base ... - Yes, plus constant financial and material "gifts" and "concessions" to our "best friend" Erdogan ??? To prevent this friend from stabbing us in the back again ... - Although - gifts are gifts, but it is very dangerous for Russia to turn its back to such a "friend" ... - even for a short moment - and that is dangerous ...
    - And in Africa, Erdogan expects broad Russian support and help ... - otherwise he would not have climbed there ... - And Erdogan today in Libya is, in fact, a win-win option ...
    - This means that if Erdogan suddenly rakes in the top of the most serious troubles in Libya ... then ... then ... then ... then Russia is right there ... - Russia will start struggling, not sparing the stomach his and not sparing his money, and not sparing his other means ... - will begin to pull his best friend Erdogan out of this misfortune ... - Erdogan is counting on this ...
    - And another option ... - if the Turkish army, supported by the numerous Turkish "fifth column" there, suddenly achieves any success ... then ... then ... then ... then all the same Erdogan on a white Arabian horse will enter Tripoli and begin his ascent ... like a newly-minted sultan ...
    - Well, Russia will support its best friend in this too ... - Russia is ready to love Erdogan in every form ... - even if he is in the mud and dust; and when he is a successful eastern despot ...
    - So Erdogan has a full deck of trump cards in his deck ... -3/4 of these "trump cards" are Russian ...
