Turkish media called the state whose planes attacked the Turkish air defense in Libya


On the night of July 5, 2020, the al-Vatiya air base in Libya was hit by an air strike, the Turkish Anadolu agency writes.


It is noted that as a result of the attack on the airbase located 130 km from Tripoli, there were no casualties, but the air defense, radar and electronic warfare systems were damaged. According to the agency, the planes of the United Arab Emirates Air Force, which are based in neighboring Egypt, are behind the attack. At the same time, the Government of National Accord of Libya does not officially comment on this information and what happened.

The information that UAE aviation was involved in the attack was spread on social networks by the spokesman for the operation “Volcano of Wrath” of the PNS forces Abdulmalik al-Medeni. It was he who reported the details of the incident. According to him, in the raid on the Al-Vatiya airbase, the UAE Air Force Mirage 2000-9 aircraft took off, taking off from the Egyptian Sidi al-Barani airbase, 90 km from the border with Libya.

The Agency emphasized that Al-Vatiya was attacked for the first time after May 18, 2020, when units of the Libyan National Army Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar were expelled from it.

We remind you that before this information about the air strike at the specified air base have spread Arab media that cited high-ranking military LNA. They said that Al-Vatiya was to become the main base of the Turkish Armed Forces in Libya. There the Turks delivered various weapons and equipment, which were destroyed during the raid.

I must add that in early May of this year, web users turned attentionthat at the Sidi al-Barani airbase in Egypt, six multi-role fighters of the Mirage 2000-9 UAE Air Force were spotted. Then the assumption arose that these aircraft strike airstrikes in the interests of the LNA.

        I did not expect to see exactly Mirage 2000. In similar articles with photos, things happened differently.

            I can’t say for sure now that I need to look, but there were some mistakes, in my opinion. From now on I will immediately celebrate.

    Turkish media called the state whose planes attacked the Turkish air defense in Libya

    - Ahh ....- Again Mirage 2000-9 Air Force ... - Well, what about the Turks ...- with their F-16 ???
    - Perhaps the Mirage 2000-9 Air Force will be abruptly ... with its new RDY 2 radar - you can see it worked without problems on the ground ... - the Turks couldn’t even set anything to intercept ... - and the Turkish air defense could not do anything ...
    - Most likely, the French pilots completed the task ...
    - And where are our domestic military aircraft ??? -Only in Syria to grind the sand ... can ... -All the "import" only in the case is lit up ... -Lately some kind of air turmoil was among the Indians (where the Indians used our "Mig") with Pakistanis ... - but it's still not clear ... - how it ended there ... - One Hindu was shot down, and Pakistan never acknowledged the loss ...

      What is your concern? They sold the ice cream, but they will eat it, or throw it away - the seller does not care.

      Where are your flyers and quicksands, Irina? After the air defense system of the planned Turkish base was destroyed, what do your Turkish sources say?

      Nothing special, in India, the ancient MiG landed the F-16, it’s just not fashionable to recall this in certain circles.

        And where are your fliers and quicksand Irina? After the air defense system of the planned Turkish base was destroyed, what do your Turkish sources say?

        My "fliers and quicksands" ??? - Well, they probably swim and ... and fly ...
        - And "they tell Turkish sources" ... - "mine" about the fact that the Indian MiG-21 was shot down (and its pilot got to the Pakistanis) ... - Well ... the Hindu side announced that it was allegedly the Pakistani F-16 was also shot down (well, here it is ... - believe it; or not) ... - There is nothing more to add ...
