[ Thread: Internationalized #manpower in the war for #Tripoli ]
Long before #Ankara began sending #Syrian Turkmen fighters in Dec to help the #GNA, the number of gung-ho fighters willing to go risk their lives on behalf of the #LNA in W #Libya was insufficient.

That is an important reality even if pro-#LNA voices are loathe to acknowledge it
That’s why the #LNA has used #Sudanese mercs throughout 2019. On LNA side, Sudanese mercs have been basically part of the furniture, eliciting little comment.

Above issue is also the reason why the arrival of a few hundred #Russian fighters near #Tripoli in Sep had a big effect.

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.

#AnneWill #LibyaConference
3. To make things more messy:
The "Prime Minister of Tripolis", Fayez #Sarraj, is supported by
#Turkey (troops in Libya)
#Germany
#EU
#Italy
#Qatar
#UN

#Haftar is supported by
#SaudiArabia
#UAE
#Egypt
#Russia (RUS mercenaries in Libya)
#France (#NATO-partner & #EU)

Comunicato Stampa #AlarmPhone! Negli ultimi 4 giorni ci hanno chiamato 22 barche in pericolo in fuga dalla #Libia con a bordo 1.150 persone. Di queste, 400 hanno raggiunto l’Europa. ∼ 700 persone sono state riportate in Libia o non ne sappiamo il destino. mediterranearescue.org/news/fuga-di-m…
Abbiamo ripetutamente informato le autorità competenti di situazioni di grave pericolo ma non sono intervenute in modo adeguato. Di molte barche non conosciamo il destino. Temiamo intercettazioni da parte delle milizie libiche o #naufragi.
C'è stato un respingimento per mano di privati. Un mercantile ha riportato dei migranti in Libia illegalmente. All’arrivo a #Tripoli, i 64 #migranti si sono rifiutati di sbarcare. Secondo le testimonianze, le autorità libiche hanno sparato a un migrante e gettato il corpo in mare

#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!
#BREAKING: The first group of #AlQaeda affiliated #Syrian mercenaries from #Idlib are now on their ways from #Istanbul, #Turkey to #Tripoli, #Libya on-board flight Number 8U1971/AAW1971 of Afriqiyah Airways's Airbus A320-214 with 5A-ONL register.

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..

Quick thread with initial thoughts on why #Lebanon’s PM @saadhariri just chose to resign, in defiance of orders from Hizbullah’s Nasrallah: (1)
@saadhariri First, just look at #Tripoli, #Sidon & #Beirut, Hariri’s traditional pillars of support (Sidon is his hometown), which have been major sites of #LebanonProtests. Every day this cabinet remained he was hemorrhaging what little popularity he still preserved (2)
@saadhariri Second, today’s disgraceful violence by Hizb & Amal thugs in Beirut was a great embarrassment to him. It’s one thing to be in coalition with your political foes when there’s a measure of stability in the country; quite another to be covering for them as they assault citizens (3)

#Liban : comme si le signal, pour ne pas dire l'ordre, lui avait été donné lors du discours de Nasrallah, chef du #Hezbollah, tenu hier, l'armée libanaise charge les manifestants de #Tripoli, principale ville sunnite du pays
L'armée libanaise ouvre le feu face aux manifestants de Tripoli
Pour être précis nous sommes à Badoui, un faubourg de Tripoli où se situe un important camp de réfugiés palestiniens.

Russians are reportedly on the ground supporting renegade General Khalifa Haftar known as ‘CIA’s Man in Libya’ against the #UnitedNations backed Govt of National Accord – in what is now being called as the Russo American Alliance against the #DeepState.
greatgameindia.com/russo-american…
More than 100 mercenaries from #WagnerGroup headed by Yevgeny Prigozhin also known as "Putin’s Chef” for his Kremlin catering contracts arrived at a forward base in #Libya in the first week of September to support eastern strongman Khalifa Haftar’s assault on the capital #Tripoli
Russian mercenary commander confirmed that #WagnerGroup contractors were fighting in #Libya & said that some had been killed in action there in what is described as a bolstering of LNA forces amid an escalation of LNA airstrikes on the capital. #DeepState bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

And Haftar's done. I didn't realise that I was lucky enough to be on the front lines for "Zero Hour" but it truly was a zero if the idea was for Haftar do a backflip in Martyr's Square. Sadly his UAE and Russian backers had already shifted to "Plan B" libyaobserver.ly/news/haftars-z…
Haftar crashed all the jets the Russians fixed up so they have switched from the "strong man" to election model. The four Russians never met Saif (who was killed in a shootout two years ago) and seem clueless, Two remain in jail. They were scammed. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
After Mohamed Dahlan's big idea ate shit, the UAE is shifting to a more aggressive stance. They are putting together an helo assault and ground assault group and moving to the base in Niger. This is the story I am working on. SA mercenaries and a US ground commander are involved.

La rude soirée que la France a traversée avec le match de l'#Algérie me fait penser à évoquer le livre de Robert Davis, "Esclaves chrétiens, maîtres musulmans", sur la piraterie barbaresque en #Méditerranée et la mise en #esclavage des Européens entre 1500 et 1800. #Thread 1/
Ce livre évoque l'#esclavage qui a visé les chrétiens européens ("traite des Blancs") pendant plusieurs siècles par les États Barbaresques musulmans d'Afrique du Nord (dont l'actuelle #Algérie), un des plus grands tabous et un des aspects les moins connus de notre #histoire. 2/
On estime à environ 1,2 millions les chrétiens européens réduits en #esclavage lors des attaques des pirates barbaresques en mer ou lors des "razzias" sur les côtes méditerranéennes en France, en Italie ou en Espagne, et même jusqu'en Europe du Nord (Grande-Bretagne, Islande). 3/
