On March 7th, the Libyan National Army, under Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar carried out heavy shelling on Mitiga International Airport near Tripoli.

Purportedly, it targeted the Turkish Armed Forces operations room located there.

The airport has been subject to heavy shelling with GRAD rockets over the last several days.

On March 4th, four missiles hit it, according to Amin al-Hashemi, spokesman for the Health Ministry in Tripoli.

The LNA also said that a Turkish UAV was shot down south of Tripoli.

Heavy clashes were on-going on March 7th, just south of Tripoli in Azizia.

Meanwhile, the Turkish information network is hard at work attempting to stir up some controversy.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin would take “positive steps” on the issue of the mythical PMC “Wagner.”

The Government of National Accord (GNA) forces are also attacking LNA positions around Tripoli. Namely near Souk El Khamis.

GNA also reportedly destroyed an LNA ammunition depot and a position for the forces of Khalifa Haftar in Qasir Benghashir.

Gununu told reporters that the operation came as a response to the targeting of civilians in Tripoli, adding that Volcano of Rage forces will tackle any attacks by “the aggression militias”.

He also called on all Libyans to stay away from the areas where Haftar’s forces are located in southern Tripoli.

Meanwhile, sources from Libyan Army forces said artillery weapons of 166 Brigade had targeted three ammunition depots of Haftar’s forces in Qasir Benghashir, saying the ammunition was the heavy weapons used to randomly bomb Tripoli neighborhoods.

Satanic Erdogan and Satanyahu bite the dust.Secretary anti christ Trump are totally confused.

Trump circa April 2019: “Yeah, Haftar, I like that Haftar. Just talked to him on the phone. Great guy, great guy…”

Trump circa November 2019: “Russia needs to stop supporting Haftar’s reckless campaign in Libya…”

I really wish I can find that clip of Trump calling Haftar a “great guy”, but I remember watching it a long time ago on some off-the-cuff local interview (a live stream). It’s something that would have been poorly-archived, but it would be nice to see it again. I think it’s safe to say that Haftar isn’t a Western puppet anymore. Go roast those American and Zio-backed Turd headchoppers ??


Hafter has been vocal to his own demise once Erdogan arrives next week with drones and re-inforcement he will realize he fucked up big time. No Russian army forces to back him or stop Erdogan from him. It’s only him and Erdogan in the Sahara
