The conflict escalates: fleets of different countries rushed to Libya

The military conflict in Libya seems to be gaining momentum and reaching a slightly different level. So, in addition to aviation and ground forces, the fleets of different countries come into play.

According to the Arab edition of Defense Arabic, off the Egyptian coast near the city of Mersa Matruh runs universal landing ship of the Mistral type, equipped with Apache and Ka-52 military helicopters. Moreover, on the deck of the UDC are based on the Mi-24 airborne assault landing plan unusual for him.

To the shores of Libya, Turkish ships are also heading. Among the military vessels of Turkey is a frigate, on board of which there are medium-range guided missiles RIM-66E-5, designed to destroy air targets. Along the Libyan coast, the ship of the Italian Navy is also constantly located.

In addition to this, the Greek fleet initiated a blockade of arms supplies to Libya. As part of the measures for its implementation, the frigate Spetses discovered a merchant ship flying the flag of Tanzania. With air escort of the vessel, Greek military personnel contacted the Turkish frigates, and it was stated that the ship was under the protection of this country. This was reported by the Greek Military Portal resource.

Add to this the Sixth Fleet of the United States, which is already constantly located in the Mediterranean Sea, and not far from Libya. Ankara recently called on Washington to actively intervene in the Libyan conflict. Russian ships are also located in the water area, but so far only in its eastern part.

Meanwhile, the Egyptian authorities decided to purchase from Italy 6 frigates, as well as two squadrons of Eurofighter fighters and M-346 combat trainers. In addition, the deal includes a military satellite and 20 Falaj II OPV patrol boats.

      I think that no one will even want to uncover him (if he exists in reality).

        Everything seems to be true. But since "fleets of different countries" - then for something 3-degree you can and zhahnat.
        Recently it was reported that this aircraft .... X ... allegedly flopped the transport from the Turks, and nothing, but long ago we tested some missiles on the old Syrian destroyer ...

          Haftaru can, he is local. But he has neither the MiG-31 nor the Dagger. Will work by being fitted. This is enough to stay afloat. And nobody demands more from him. Even if he himself wants to.

            Perhaps they will do with him, as with Gaddafi. And at that time he had MiGs, and tanks, and air defense.

              Hardly. I say, there are no influential forces who want to quickly end this conflict.
              Imagine: the conflict has stopped and Libyan oil (no matter who owns it) has gone to the market ...
              And who needs it? USA, KSA, RF ....?
              So in both Libya and Syria, conflicts will remain in the near future.
              Again, in 2011, Medvedev was president of the Russian Federation. Therefore, Libya was leaked. And Gaddafi sorted out quickly, brutally, radically. Not waiting for 2012. When the president changed.
