More data on who funded the rise of #Haftar pixelsurgery.wordpress.com/2017/09/18/con…
Haftar's rise to power was facilitated by #ErikPrince and Frontier Services Group who secretly flew #Haftar to meet #Saudi, #Emirati, #Egyptian and #OPEC leaders using Maleth Aero Cessna Citation Bravo 9H-PAL S/N 550-0932 in Feb-Mar of 2015. Mar 2 Haftar was appointed leader.

16. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

It is "Zero Hour" here in Tripoli according to a Facebook post by the #LNA. I think I will get a shwarma. arabnews.com/node/1528326/m…
My ground information is not matching the big statements. There was some internal fighting in Tarhouna between a salafist LNA group and a Haftar group. al Jufra Air Base is being hit by Turkish drones which appear far more accurate than UAE drones. Libyans are tired of this.
There was a big push but it was blocked and pushed back by about 80 civilians in Gharyan who shot the shit out of the LNA. They can't hold and Misrata has not gone heavy. Maybe he will air drop money and iPhones

#Tripoli #Libya UAE drones attacks from 2:00 to 6:30 in Alswanni east of airport and Gharyan. No casualties. #LNA Aircraft hit the field hospital this AM. Some casualties.
#LNA is also quite active yesterday on disinformation. Haftar said he would be in Martyrs Square in downtown Tripoli. #WaitingforHaftar.
Three doctor's killed in the field hospital in Alswani area. Twenty kms from the front line

#Libya- so apparently the FGM-148 Javelins that were found at #Garyan belonged to....#France

Wait, it gets more complicated. The weapons were meant to "protect French troops in Libya", but also "damaged and no longer usable" and "awaiting destruction".

Well, which one is it?

If it's non-usable & awaiting destruction, what the hell were the Javelins doing in Garyan, which had little to no significance prior to Tripoli campaign (and therefore had no reason to house French troops)?

#LNA might not be aware that their own velocity and trajectory might be flinging them outside the OODA Loop. The faster you do stuff, the faster stuff is done to you. m.facebook.com/LNAspox
Sometimes when you make mistakes, making mistakes faster is not good. Also if LNA is found to be culpable in the Tajoura bombing diplomatic and donor doors will be closing. This press release from the UN is not a good development: un.org/press/en/2019/…
Some perspective: There are about a million migrants in Libya, usually engaged in manual labor or agriculture. Some are saving to go to Europe, many just support their families back home. The people in the detention centers are those captured trying to leave or being smuggled.

For imagery geeks. Before and after, 8k by 3K sats of the July 2, 2019 #Tajoura #Libya hit from Maxar Technologies now are available from. Dish @Maxar, are you getting into the OSINT/ @Bellingcat/ UNWarCrimes space? June 27, 2019 is "before" shot (left). epa.eu/war-photos/arm…
@Maxar @bellingcat Missing from the current conversation is the June 15, 2019 Haftar attack on Tajoura militia center...that did hit GNA armaments. This means refugees were being held in/near a military target. Don't confuse with Tajoura prison or former Tajoura nuke center.
@Maxar @bellingcat @malachybrowne and others are gathering excellent visual evidence...of what they know. But civilians kept against their will in known military bases/weapons depots makes them effectively "human shields". A question to ask #GNA and #LNA based on a history of attacks like these.

#BREAKING: Substantial loss of life as a migrant detention facility in #Libya was struck by an #LNA airstrike. Initial reports suggest up to 70+ killed and more wounded. If true expect massive international condemnation and possible military action. #GNA #haftar #tripoli
UPDATE: Estimates of up to 150+ dead according to the Libya Ministry of Health sources reportedly saying bodies recovered from the location of LNA/Haftar airstrikes in Tripoli.
The government of national accord (GNA) which is the government established by the UN in Libya was running the migrant facility. Essentially, factions in the Libyan National Army who oppose the GNA bombed a UN facility and killed according to some reports up to 150 this is BAD.

#Trump would be better off listening to his own military commanders, who understand that #Haftar cannot so easily take control of all of #Libya militarily.

Trump reverses course on Libya, and now strongly supports Haftar. HOW VERY NOT SHOCKING.

He probably just saw the “Field Marshall” hold a military parade.

Y’all know that’s all it would take.

nytimes.com/2019/04/19/wor…
Well, that’s one hell of an interpretative leap and ideological projection from...a Finnish 17 year-old...

Yeah, so....if you are a non-Libyan — who was 9 years old during the #Feb17 revolution — and your timeline is full of not much else besides MAGA references...

I’m highly unlikely to consider your analysis of Hiftar / LNA with any degree of gravity. For reasons.

Many of them.

Haftar's LNA have a bad habit of filming and posting their MiG-23UB taking off. I wonder if this is old #8008 used to bomb Chad, Darfur and Benghazi?
Lots of pics here of the MiG 23 that crashed. Pilots ejected. Let's see how the #LNA spins this: facebook.comالجبهة-الإعلامية-لحماية-العاصمة

More footage from Tripoli of Haftar's forces firing into urban areas. Russia Today seems to have good access.
This specific footage is licensed from Arab 24 a news organization based in Dubai, Amman and Washington DC. Based in Jordan and owned by Mohammed Elajlouni. Sputnik and RT have been aggressively reporting events in Libya arab24.com/portal/index.p…
Buildup of #fakeTwitter supporting #Haftar continues, most share one post promoting the UAE. 218News promoting his advances while others focus on the #LNA losing. Lots of confusing maps, @k_ramali digging. Some taking the piss out of the #sockpuppets twitter.com/i/moments/1116…

Looks like there is a pretty robust bot campaign to support Haftar in the West. This one looks like it is out of Abu Dhabi. Clumsy but disturbing. Anyone know how to scientifically measure these fake accounts?
These new Twitter accounts retweet Barcelona soccer, the Dubai Media Office, and random Brexit stuff. There is one old account. They follow gibberish accounts.
The US right wing is using Libya as anti Hillary narrative, and the UN seems to seizing the microphone to talk about impact on migrants. And can the media stop saying "on the brink of civil war" Meanwhile Haftar and his #LNA are far from home and much further from victory

After almost 5 years of fight, #ISIS "caliphate" has been eliminated from de map. Many actors have contributed in the liberation of an 300000 Km^2 zone between Syria & Irak : (1)
- #ISF / #PMU : 150214 km^2 (52 %) [#Coalition & #IAF]
- #SAA : 81950 Km^2 (28 %) [#RuAF, #IRGC & #PMU]
- #SDF : 44054 Km^2 (15 %) [#Coalition]

- #KF : 4687 Km^2 (1,6 %) [#Coalition]
- #LAF : 350 Km^2 (0,2 %) [#RuAF & #LAF]
With the end of #ISIS "caliphate" the terrorist fight enter in a new phase in #Syria.
After loose control of the villages & towns militants will increase their presence as sleeper cells around the country as we see in #Irak. Nowadays many areas still have #ISIS presence: (3)
