1. The mess in #Libya is at least as complex as the mess in #Afghanistan: In Afghanistan the #Kabul-government, supported by #NATO, controls little more than Kabul.

In #Libya "Prime Minister" Fayez #Sarraj only controls a small part in the North, around #Tripoli.

#AnneWill
2. While Khalifa #Haftar, the commander of the Libyan National Army (#LNA), controls the larger part of #Libya. He does not control greater #Tripoli and in the South local warlords rule.

Speaker of the House of Representatives what really happened in Moscow:
We were invited by the Russian president and as a great country and according to are traditions we can not refuse to not hear what they have to say , but we didn’t agree on anything before hand .
#HoR #LNA
As We arrived the #Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said to me you have the key to this issue,I replied we but every time l leave i keep that key with the Libyan people.
First me and Hafter refused to meet al-Sarraj because his treachery and the Turkish presences Disgust us
As we started we found everything was already discussed and negotiated beforehand, and we had not hand in any of the terms the others already signed.
Me and #Hafter refused and our number one term was the liberation of the full Libyan soil for terrorists and militias.

A summary review done by the #LNA on the #Turkish armoured vehicle #BMC.
This review was done after real combat incentres and further testing on captured models of #BMC the #KİRPİ and #AMAZON in #Libya.
@BmcOtomotivTR
#KIRPI 2
1) Weighing 19tons with a maximum additional add wight of 1.5tons.

2)Maximum tested speed was (68 to 73Km/h )although manual states 100km/h.

3)The acceleration was very low from 0 to 45Km/h, which make is hard for quick escapes and fast movements in small bursts.
4) The vehicles Angular maneuverability capabilities were nothing less but disappointing , as the #BMC #KIRPI was unable to take sharp corners making it obsolete in tight urban warfare, in which such trains and obstacles are expected.

#BREAKING: According to a former #Turkish Air Force pilot, two Airbus A400Ms of the air force transferred almost 250 Jihadists of #Syrian National Army to #Istanbul from Gazientep airfield minutes ago to be transferred to #Tripoli, #Libya by passenger airplanes within next 4 hrs!
My source corrected me and told me that, #Turkish Air Force has No intention to send these Airbus A400M transport airplanes directly to #Libya due to the fact that #Egypt|ian Air Force's F-16Cs supported by #UAE|AF Airbus A330 MRTT tankers are patrolling in #Libya's airspace now!

A lot of the questions that came up during @LibyaDesk consultations in #Tunis had to do with the return of former #Gaddafi officials and supporters to the scene.
It came as no surprise that a lot of the available information was false.
This thread will attempt to clarify things.
Since 2011, tribes and figures that supported the former strongman were sidelined and persecuted, forcing many to flee #Libya.
The first return of ‘green’ Libyans (Gaddafi supporters) was in 2014 #Benghazi when #Haftar called on them to assist in the war against #terrorism.
This created a safe zone in east of #Libya which resulted in many families in exile that could no longer afford living in #Egypt or #Tunisia to move to towns in the east.
Politically, the first return of former #Gaddafi officials to political life was due to #Sarraj..

An important read on #libya #Haftar #LNA and why the #UAE and others have weaponized crime and murder to the international level. #Predatory economies in Eastern Libya globalinitiative.net/eastern-libya-…
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.

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

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
nytimes.com/2019/07/09/wor…

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?
2/
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.

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.
