Libyan Army Retreats Leaving Behind Loads Of Weapons As GNA Forces Push Forward (Photos, Videos)

Donate

The Libyan National Army (LNA) is retreating from several fronts in western and central Libya, as forces loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA) are pushing forward with a direct support from Turkey.

On June 5, the LNA withdrew from the town of Tarhunah southeast of the capital, Tripoli. Army units left behind loads of weapons, including several battle tanks, howitzers, armored vehicles as well as dozens of Grad rockets and mortar shells. GNA forces also captured a destroyed Pantsir-S1 system.

GNA forces didn’t stop in Tarhunah. On June 6, a large ground offensive was launched on the coastal town of Sirte, a key oil-export port.

The LNA is claiming that the attack was repelled. However, footage from the scene indicate that the army is retreating from Sirte. Several pick-ups and armored vehicles were reportedly seized or destroyed by government forces.


The GNA’s recent gains in western Libya were a direct result of Turkish support. Turkish combat drones are providing GNA forces with air support, while more than 11,000 Syrian militants are taking part in ground battles.

Meanwhile, the LNA’s backers, Egypt and the UAE, are yet to boost their support to match that provided by Turkey’s to the GNA.

        Israel don’t care about Libya, I just stated a fact. We have our own wars coming soon, which would make Libya look small compared to us.

          You dont ever get bored with wars?

          • <>

            Not when I know I am right, annexing part of my historic land is a war worth fighting for. The whole world can say it’s not ours, but it’s not up to the world to decide only up to us and the Palestinians.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            They are brown people and should be proud of it. They pretend to be “white” just to please their western racist pay masters. Actually, the Arabs are classified as “white” even in the racist Americunt race identification.

            Arsehole Jew PUNK you are a brown rat and should be proud of it and be out there demonstrating for Black Lives. You Jew cunts have worst inferiority complex than the fucking Hindus with their caste system. You are considered a BROWN KHAZAR rat and your nose alone is a dead giveaway. To the Anglo racists you are even worse than Black.

            A Jewish woman has accused police in Sweden of doctoring her photo identification to give her an anti-Semitic hooked nose.

            Annika Hernroth-Rothstein revealed on Twitter she was photographed at a police
            station near Stockholm and did a “double take” when she was given her
            picture back.

            Major teenage inferiority complex and inability to cope with reality. Be proud of your brown skin and reject racism and give the Palestinians their lands back.

            Did you see my skin? so what are you mumbeling about? I said I am mostly white, the brown areas are my hands and legs which are fit for the ME sun. Ashok the Paki bastard.

            What’s a ME skin? you silly simplistic teenage ignorant delinquent.

            Iraqi color, google it you fucking Paki bastard.

          • Ashok Varma

            What’s an Iraqi color? Arabs like you have all sorts of hues, like Indians. And if you are a certified bastard that is not your fault, blame your promiscuous mum.

          • Ashok Varma

            At least pretending to be one. He is a very confused teenager and not well raised as abandoned as child and raised by a single mother who lets him play with violent computer games and hasbara fantasy trolling for pocket money. Quite sad chit of a boy.

          • good american

            I was wondering if he was european caucasion or not, if he was he really wouldn’t have claim to any ‘ancestral land’. To me, it’s the people that are/were the current inhabitants living peacefully that have claim, not robber-dreamers coming from somewhere else.

          • <>

            I am an Iraqi Jew.

          • Satellitte

            Are you saying now that you are arab jew? lol and you are claiming that you are white? lol Go meet with the KKK of David Duke let see how he treat you, stupid hasbarat

          • Ashok Varma

            LOL, very identity challenged and confused teenage PUNK. He is self-loathing Arab who fits nowhere.

          • Satellitte

            I knew something fishy about this cunt. Now I know lol

          • <>

            Most Iraqi Jews are white you dumb fuck, they are different from North African Jews or other Muslim Arabs. Learn some facts idiot.

          • Ashok Varma

            Too funny, Arab kid :) you are a real cute self-hating bastard!

          • Ashok Varma

            In other words an Arab. I knew it as your teenage inferiority complex says it all.

          • <>

            Not an Arab, Iraqi Jew. Learn the difference you black Paki.

          • Ashok Varma

            Proud to be a brown or tan Indian, dear Arab teenager :) BTW, black is beautiful.

          • <>

            Did you even check the article? I got the skin color of that old women.

          • Ashok Varma

            Mrs Gandhi ? LOL. She was a Brahmin, like me. What’s your inferiority deal with black or brown people, we control the world. Look at China and India, half the world’s population. You have been hanging around with inferior kids.

          • <>

            Serously Ashok, if you can’t comment on something then maybe it’s best to shut up. I have no problem with Indians, only with you. Regarding the Arabs, since my ancestors have been living in the ME for 2000 years I think I am part of it, but Jews and Muslims didn’t mix so I still have my Jewish genes and the brighter skin color.

          • Ashok Varma

            Seriously, grow up, we were also ruled by Muslims for 1000 years and have no problem. India is the second largest Muslim country after Indonesia. You being an Arab should try to get along with your Muslim brothers.

          • <>

            They are not my brothers, we were exiled to Iraq and other ME countries because our Temple was destroyed at 70 AD. If it wasn’t for that, then no one would even talk about Palestine or Arabs today, since Israel could have been more than 2000 years old. And now, we will annex a vital part of our land so watch for July 1st.

          • Ashok Varma

            Then you will have a Muslim majority, perhaps Arabs like you will blend. Israel is a fake state like Pakistan. Surrounded by 500 million Arabs like you, it has no chance and will disappear, it is called DEMOGRAPHICS.

          • <>

            Do you even know what we are about to annex? in that area, only 20K Palis live mostly in Jericho. 30% (Orange area) go to us the rest (White area) go to their future state
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annexation_of_the_Jordan_Valley

          • Ashok Varma

            Look, now you are talking like a more mature person. No people can survive in a constant state of conflict over such a small sliver of land. Since Arabs and Jews are same Semitic people they should get along. The racist concept of Zionism is insidious and spell doom for so-called Israel. Stop killing Palestinians and stealing their land or eventually the rest of the Arabs will destroy you, as the the winds of change are blowing from Saudi Arabia to Egypt. Then your corrupt and myopic regime has picked a fight with Iran for no reason as there are no borders. That is another fight you can’t win. My point is that violence is a zero-sum game.

          • <>

            As far as I care, we can annex the Jordan Valley (our border with Jordan) and they can get the rest of the West Bank. Still, up until this moment they declined any peace offer, so maybe you should check with them what is their true goals (get entire Israel).
            I can live with them side by side, as long as they don’t enter Israel. They will have a tunnel connecting them to Gaza, and an airport. Fair deal to me.

          • Ashok Varma

            Well the Zionists killed Rabin, so as long as there are extremists anywhere there will be no peace. We have the same problem with Modi and his RSS hatemongering, but luckily most Indians are not stupid. The US is in decline and in the end you will have to work out a modus vivendi with the Palestinians, who also include Christians, so this is not a Muslim-Jew issue. It is an issue of occupation and repression. That historically simply is a losing proposition. Anyway, a mature approach is need like the Apartheid regime had to take.

          • <>

            I would say that a mature approach is needed by both sides, but here we are ready to accept Trump’s plan which gives us the Jordan Valley. By doing so, we actually declare the rest belongs to them by that peace offer. They get 70% of the West Bank to have a state and finish the conflict, now it’s their call. Let’s wait and see.

          • Satellitte

            ahaha dumb stupid cunt. If you go the west bank the PLO won’t kidnap you they will think that you are one of them but in other hand the Khazar zionist fake jew squatting Hebron from Poland will shoot you because of you Arab feature ahahahh

            He is a self-loathing teenage Arab pretending to be “white”. Iraq is the cradle of Arab civilization. Very confused and inferior teenager. He does not know his father and that is the problem.

          • Ashok Varma

            You are self-loathing hasbara teenager with identity crises and a inferiority complex chip over your shoulder as you are brown person wanting to be “white” as if that is something to be desired. Jews are just inferior and outcast rejects of humanity.

          • <>

            Don’t cry Ashok, soon we will get our land back from the Palis that took it from us. Glory to Israel :)

          • Ashok Varma

            You are an Arab yourself LOL

          • Satellitte

            you arab lol like the Palestinian. That’s why most of ruling class of the Isrhell are European/Slavic Ashkenaz when the others are canon fooder ahahah Golda Meir and the cunt liberman/Naftali rules over you.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            He is just a PUNK. There will be no war by the Zionist cunts in July as this arsehole rants. He will have to close this account too like the others.

      • StafJustice

        In fact I am confuse to see the Saudis, the UAE, Egypt on the LNA side….
        What a bad side….
        I hate the Turks in Syria but not in Libya, I learnt that the Iranian too are on the side of the Turks in Libya.

        • Lone Ranger

          Take everything with a grain of salt.
          Lot of false reporting…

    • Lone Ranger

      But its a bit too obvious that mossad runs Erdogan as well…

      • khalkha

        Mossad is with the camp of egypt and UAE because of normalization ties and hafter’s promise as well.

        • StafJustice

          It looks like both the Turks and the Iranians supports the GNA….
          Some irgc advisers on the ground with the GNA…
          I live in Africa and my friends fighting (force recruit) on the side of the GNA actually confirmed that to me….so I tried to find any link on the web…o couldn’t get any better than this one…below
          https://www.addresslibya.co/en/archives/45467

          • khalkha

            May be, iran should counter all israeli interests which are represented by the axis of normalization (hafter ,sissi’s egypt , saudia etc).
            Thanks for the link ,

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Iran has no dogs in this conflict. Iran is only responsible for the Axis of Resistance nations and Yemen. Let these fuckers fight and destroy each other.

          • Astar Roth

            Well said.

      • Icarus Tanović

        Yes, Mossads Zionist runing Erdogan.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          That is a factual statement. The Zionist media has even made a TV series on their cooperation with the Turkeys in energy sector.

      • Ashok Varma

        Turkey is part of NATO and Zionist controlled regimes.

    • SnowCatzor

      Russia isn’t even in Libya you idiot.

      • Jamal Utr.

        No, those russian crusaders there are fake indeed

        • Zionism = EVIL

          They are casualty averse as Afghanistan showed and their operational planning is very poor. Never commit troops if you don’t have the stomach for a long term fight.

      • <>

        Yes they are, not officially because they work in a sneaky ways. You can be sure they help LNA on the ground, and also arm them.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Dumbass PUNK, Russia was never fully backing Haftar anyway and it is not a crucial area for Russia. It is the Egyptian cowardly cunts that lost and will face severe two front problem in the Sinai and now in the western deserts.

    • Ashok Varma

      For a pretend white/brown hasbara idiotic teenager who have a very simplistic and dull brain. These type of conflicts have no military solution as the Zionist occupation of Palestine has shown in 70 years. It should be left to the Libyan people like the Palestinians to decide their future.

      • <>

        The Palis dont’t decide shit anymore, they lost their right after they rejected every peace deal. Now, it’s time we take back what is ours.

        • Ashok Varma

          Is that your self-loathing Arab point of view. You are an Iraqi Arab, confused teenager.

    • S Melanson

      Not so fast. Egypt has sent heavy military convoys to Libya border according to SF recent article (This needs to be verified). Now Erdogan would not want to face Egyptian forces so let us see how this latest round of brinksmanship plays out as Libya supplants Syria as the land of the confused and confusing alliance clusterf__k.

      I suppose Israel could see such developments as positive as it bogs Egypt down in another insurgent infested failed state s__thole. On the other hand, longer term, Egypt can gain valuable battlefield experience…

  • SnowCatzor

    If the UAE and Egypt actually want the LNA to claim total victory in this war they’ve got to step up. Whilst I doubt the GNA could ever take over Libya, they are pushing back.

  • Jamal Utr.

    Thanks for the weapons Russian Homosexual Ziondixuckers and French Transgender mangirls. GNA will f*ck you up with your own weapons and piss on your dirty pig-corpses

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Do you really think anyone with French faggots backing can ever win? Only the Egyptian cowards could make a difference but the Jew cunt Sisi is still looking for his balls. Turkey and Italy are the winners in terms of oil plunder.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Hafter must have the genius MBS as his military advisor in the epic war of fuckwits. This is hilarious as I had predicted. The story was over as soon as Russia withdrew the 1800 men of the Wagner Group, the only ones who could fight.

  • Alberto Garza

    lybia is the tomb of the pantsir system .

    • Ashok Varma

      More like a tomb of any military leadership in Haftar.
