LNA Spokesman Claims Turkey Wishes To Besiege Egypt And Saudi Arabia

Click to see full-size image

On June 24th, the Libyan National Army (LNA) spokesperson Brigadier General Ahmed al-Mesmari gave a briefing.

He said that operation “Al-Harama” (Dignity) destroyed the Muslim Brotherhood’s “project” and safeguarded the nation.

“We detected Turkish military naval pieces in the north of the Libyan western region in very large numbers.”

Al-Mesmari also said that Turkey was attempting to expand into the Horn of Africa, and also Yemen, in order to attempt and besiege both Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

“The Turkish presence in Libya threatens the entire region. The Libyan National Army is ready to deal with any emergency.”

He also said that military and civil aircraft are still on regular flights from Turkey to Mitiga and Misrata, some of which have transported Syrian mercenaries.

Al-Mesmari said that Turkey and the forces it supports have interpreted a statement by the UN Mission in Libya as “giving the green light to the militias to allow their crimes to be used and an arrangement for the people of Tarhuna on their national and patriotic stand  with the democratically elected parliament.”

According to him, the mass graves that were discovered in Tarhuna were, in fact, dead LNA fighters, who the Government of National Accord (GNA) presented as civilian casualties.

The UAE, which supports Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s LNA, issued a statement of support of France’s opposition of Turkey.

UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said:

“The UAE confirms its solidarity with France in the face of the statements and the ongoing aggressive actions by Turkey.

We strongly condemn Turkey’s dangerous behavior in a previous targeting of a French navy ship as part of a NATO mission to impose an arms embargo approved by the United Nations.”

On the ground in Libya there appear to be no clashes currently, as there was footage of a “record number” of aircraft at al Khadim Air base, just east of Benghazi. This includes two supposed IL-76 military cargo aircraft.

Turkey has carried out 23 flights with its Lockheed C-130 Hercules military transport in the last 34 days.

Out of the 23 flights, only one was made via a Squadron A400 turboprop transport.

    That would be entertaining.

    I’m not sure how ‘besieged’ KSA and Egypt would feel but Turkey might be biting more than it can chew. Edrogan’s neo Ottoman grand moves into Libya, Yemen, Iraq and Syria maybe one way of expanding it influence, but it’s too soon to say that the whole Middle East are paying tribute to the Sultan of Ankara.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Turkey has totally whacked the Arab losers, mostly importantly the Zionist controlled Egyptian cunts and their Saudi toads. This new axis of Algeria, Turkey and Iran allied with Hezbollah and Ansarallah will be a nightmare for the Zionist parasites.

      • verner

        and spell the end of the jews in palestine – they have better find a new home before long or they’ll be slaughtered like lambs – good riddance.

  • Brother Ma

    Nothing but bleating sheep and Turkey doesn’t care. The only thing to teach those Erdoganis a lesson was to shoot down na few of those planes and to have sunk a few ships. Blind Freddy knows that it would have been easier for all concerned if they did that way earlier rather than just made threats.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Egyptian cunts will lose to Ethiopia if it came to war. Like I wrote months ago, Egypt has the worst military of total fuckwits in the Arab world. Algeria is best of the nation state militaries while Hezbollah and Ansarallah as non-state forces are in a league of their own. It is a good thing that Turkey has the support of both Algeria and Iran now.

      • Brother Ma

        It seems we agree on almost everything apart from Turkey. You want it to rise and I want it to die an ignominious death. ;)

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Like I said, there are no good guys in Libya, everyone is scrambling for their own piece of OIL. However, historically Turks have opposed the Zionist cunts and even 9 Turks on the Gaza peace flotilla and Mavi Marmara lost their lives. While the Egyptian treacherous arseholes have a worst quarantine of Gaza than the Zionists themselves. Egypt also backstabbed Syria in 1973.

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      just do it….ma

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Turkey has every right to put the Zionist enslaved Egyptian and Saudi arselicking cunts in the doghouse. BTW, the Egyptian cowardly Zionist scum will lose a war to Ethiopia as the dam on the Nile gets higher and higher. Sisi is the worst sissy so far. Turkey has also brought in more air defences in Libya and may deploy the S-400 to defend the Libyan airspace.

    • Brother Ma

      Actually it has no right whatsoever. It is simply vaingloriously trying to steal other people’s resources and resurrect the much-hated Ottoman Empire. Noone wants that back.

  • Assad must stay

    Would be great if torki and saudis destroyed each other, knock out 2 dorks with one stone lmfao

    • The Objective

      It is Iran, Alsaud Regime, Israel, U.A.E. regime, and Americans that will destroy one another so true Islam can bloom. Nothing to do with Turkey, Pakistan, Qatar, Libya, and Afghanistan.
      It is pretty clear Allah has lined up these enemies of pure Islam to destroy one another.
      We’ll see how Iran wriggles out of this confrontation with America and Israel without a war that topples the regime.
      My prayer is that Trump should win a second term.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Dumbass Wahhabi terrorist LOL

        • The Objective

          Does a wahabi wish for the regime in Saudi Arabia to fall? Are wahabis not supposed to be Saudi backers?
          I only responded to a comment wishing for war between Turkey and Saudi Arabia. I was trying to show how an Iran vs Saudi war is far more likely than a Turkey vs Saudi war. We all know that as soon as a war starts between America/Israel and Iran, Saudi Arabia will be a target (which is a good thing for Muslims). Both the regimes in Saudi Arabia, Iran, U.A.E., Jordan, and Israel are unlikely to survive such a war.
          Look, they are currently pointing thousands of missiles at each other. None of those countries have a problem with Turkey big enough to start a war. But Iran has plenty of problems and scores to settle with the Zionist camp.

          • Brother Ma

            Wahhabis do want the Saudis to fall as they are even worse than the Saud regime. I know Wahhabis started the House of Saud but now Wahhabis are worse than the teacher. Which propaganda school are you from?

          • The Objective

            Wahabis are quite different from the Muslim Brotherhood. Their doctrine is anti-western as is that of the Muslim Brotherhood, but they aren’t willing or have the nerve to attempt returning peace and true governance to the Muslim lands by removing the corrupt rulers suppressing the public. That’s why the rulers in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, U.A.E., Jordan, etc are so afraid of them.
            Erdogan is a cause for concern to the west and the corrupt gulf monarchies. His actions speak a lot. No Muslim leader I know of today does what Erdogan is doing, except for the mullahs of Iran whose docrine is far from the Islam prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) brought. Hence, the mullahs cannot be considered Muslims, so that leaves Erdogan alone. Morsi would have been the second.
            Erdogan is doing in Turkey what NO Sunni president is doing today. For example, he is reshuffling the education system from grassroot to incorporate rigorous Islamic lessons. He is strengthening Islamic institutions and organisations to be far more effective than during previous decades. This is why Europe is alarmed. Such a fundamental change can permanently change the Turkish environment to a more pro-islamic one and hence, difficult for the West to manage.

          • Brother Ma

            …and why would anyone want more rigorous Islamic Schooling in Turkey ,given we have passed through the Age of Enlightenment , Rationalism and Humanism?

            I am no lover of Kemalism,Turkey or Islam but whatever good Turkey has achieved was solely because of Secularism.

            Of all Moslems I like both Shia Moslems and Secular ” Moslems” the best as do all reasonable Westerners.

            Why would any European want to seeTurkey return to its bloodthirsty medieval past? You look forward to an Islamic Sunni Resurgence as if that is a good thing. Who are you kidding?

          • Superfly

            Turkey, Pakistan and Saudis are mere US puppets and only Iran is independent.

          • The Objective

            Saudi Arabia is certainly a U.S puppet, but not Turkey and Pakistan. While these later two countries are under some kind of U.S influence, there is big limit to what the U.S can make them do. Turkey under Erdogon will wriggle totally free of Western control. The U.S can’t get Pakistan to stop supporting the Taliban despite bribing Pakistanis and issuing threats.
            Certainly they are not U.S lackeys as Saudis and the Emiratis are. It is more like how the U.S uses sanctions to influence the behaviour of governments around the world. That’s how they exert some influence over the Turkish leadership.
            Note that Turkey is one of the very few countries still importing Iranian oil despite U.S sanctions. India, Europe, and others have stopped import all together. What does that tell you about Erdogan?

      • Brother Ma

        Straight from the American or Israeli propaganda department. Go look in the mirror to see who the enemy is.

      • verner

        nah, iran is fine with just eradicating the presence of the jews in palestine, return the country to the rightful owners and live in peace ever after. iran can live with saudi without a problem.

  • The Objective

    Turkey is doing the right thing, but it is not very prepared for what lay ahead.
    After destroying the Iranian regime, I think Turkey will be the next target for America and the Zionists. They nearly killed Erdogan in a failed coup attempt four years ago. Currently, they can’t take on Turkey and Iran simultaneously. This is why Turkey should get its hands on nuclear weapons fast. Turkey is fighting the Zionists too. Iran is also fighting the Zionists, but in a cowardly proxywar fashion. Saudi regime, U.A.E., Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Bahrain, and even Oman are all Zionist slaves. Only the Muslim Brotherhood has the best shot at toppling these pro-zionist regimes by instigating domestic revolt. Because the Muslim Brotherhood are Sunni while Iran is Shiite. No Sunni population will side with Iran in a dispute between Sunni and Shiite governments. Even if they do, it’s never to serve a Shiite purpose.
    The problem with the mad Shiites ruling Iran is that they want to spread the abominable Shiite creed among Sunnis all over the world. This is why they’ll never have our support whatsoever. Iran can continue in its feud with the Zionists, but should never expect help from the Sunnis cos we are not thesame. Iran helped America in the invasion of both Iraq and Afghanistan. Iran instigates and empowers the Shiite militias in Iraq to oppress the Sunnis – 40% of the population but without any say in Iraqi politics or governance! Iran takes opportunity of chaos in Sunni communities to spread Shiism, (Yemen, Palestine, Afghanistan, etc). It claims to help any Muslim group striving against American, but those helps are always linked to a condition: the propagation of Shiism.
    Look at the Taliban for example. They never attacked Iran even once on Iranian soil, but Iran nearly invaded them in the late 90s when it deployed thousands of troops on the border. Iran only backed off for fear of Pakistan and other Sunni countries. Iran and Iraq lived peacefully without a war until the mullahs came to power. Then a devastating war with Saddam followed
    And now, Shiites on this forum speak ill of Turkey for siding with a legitimate Sunni opposition to Shiite Assad just because these suffering Syrians are Sunni.

    • Brother Ma

      Turkey helped to invade Iraq as well ,Assad is secular and only killed rabid Islamic jihadis. Turkey has been a Zionist slave since the Young Turks and Erdogan hating Israel is a temporary blip. You will return to zionism as soon as he is gone. I liked Saddam but the Sunni head choppers his death has spawned are a stain on his memory.

      Your Muslim Brothethood are headchopping beasts and Turkey is a failed state where no one but a Moslem Sunni may walk around. Curse Turkey for the Pariah it is.

      • Superfly

        Both Turkey and Pakistan are US puppets.

        • Brother Ma

          I agree. They may bark and bite at Uncle Sam’s ankles at the moment but will always run to lick his hands in the end like good dogs.

  • The Objective

    When years ago the media branded Assad a savage murderous ruler, I dismissed such claims as propaganda. Now I wonder if there is an element of truth in that.

    Assad’s allies (Russia, Iran, and China) proposed a fair solution to end the war. The UN document advocated for a cesation of hostilities, stabilisation, then followed by a nationwide free and fair election. But guess I what! Assad refused.

    He wants to forcibly reunite Syria under his dictatorship. He claims to want negotiations, but only after all of Syria’s territory is under his control, which gives him far stronger position relative to his opponents. But Turkey says no. You’ll negotiate before Syrian territory will return to government control.

    I have read some cracked analyst saying Turkey has annexed Idlib. What a joke. What those analysts haven’t told me is “how does Turkey gain from that”?

    I support continued Turkish and American occupation of Syria as long as Assad doesn’t talk. The U.S is holding the oil, and Turkey holds a third of the Syrian population who live happily in the Idlib region. I think there is agreement between Turkey and America to use much of the oil revenue to take care of Syrians in Turkey and Idlib.

    Before you subjectivists on this forum start hurling insults at me, let me remind you that most of you hypocrites claim to support Assad cos he is the legitimate or UN-recognized government of Syria. Yet you support the LNA, a rebel pro-zionist group trying to oust the legitimate UN-backed government of Libya. Secondly, Turkey is in Libya at the invitation of the Libyan government, just like you all argue that Russia is in Syria on invitation by the Syrian government.

    • Brother Ma

      You write as a Moslem Brotherhood or Turk shill would. I love Assad and Haftar and UN- backed means nothing to me. The UN also backed Guiado in Venezuela and” Moderate” Turco- headchoppers and Al nusra in Syria. Hahahah

      Assad a dictator yet Erdogan is not , when he has taken all the power to himself?

      Who are you trying to fool ?

      • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

        He is an Er-dog-an employee is what he is.
        There is many cockroaches like him posting in this blog recently.

        • Brother Ma

          Highly likely indeed.

    • Ronald

      “Turkey holds a third of the Syrian population who live happily in Idlib”.
      Just an example of your faulty argument, how does 2 million people out of 28 million people equal 33.3 %

      • The Objective

        Is that the only fault you could find in my argument? That point isn’t even important. What I was trying to make clear is that Assad will not be allowed to reunite Syria forcibly under his dictatorship.
        Please disprove the main argument I made about Assad suppressing overwhelming legitimate dissent against his rule. Cos these are the people Turkey is fighting for. Assad supporters have always tried to paint this war as strictly Zionists vs Assad just to gain the support of Zionist-haters like me and many others on this forum.

        • Ronald

          That’s just one example of your faulty argument, which is far from the truth.
          You completely ignore the election of 2014, claiming dictatorship, is another.
          So who do you work for, Turkey, the US, the EU, or the Gulf Cooperative Council.
          Those are not Syrians but have been waging this 8 year war for their own ends, certainly not for the benefit of the people of Syria.
          Don’t give me that humanitarian crap, humanitarians do not wage war.

    Turkgay can’t besiege anyone, ahahaha that was funny the title of the article.

    Turkgay is the one that will be besieged from the inside :

    Yesterday, June 24, Turkish authorities ordered the arrest and detention of 65 soldiers as part of a crackdown on the Gülen movement, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

    Forty-one Turkish soldiers have been arrested in 23 provinces across Turkey on the basis of detention orders issued by the Konstantinopolis Prosecutor’s Office.

    To these arrests we must add the 65 Turkish soldiers, 20 professors and 29 civil servants who were arrested a month ago along with the others.

    If we add these soldiers to the total number of those arrested since 2016, we reach about 4,000 members of the Turkish forces who have been imprisoned and belong to all sectors.

    We are talking about experienced executives whose education is incomplete since many of them have been trained in the EU and the USA.

  • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

    In an interview with Sky News Arabia, Gaddafi al-Dam stressed that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s attempts to intervene in Libya would fail.

    “Egypt is subject to organized warfare as an Arab country and has the right to defend itself when the red lines it has drawn are crossed. Turkey has fallen into a trap in Libya, and the foolish policies signed by Erdogan, who thought he would be the caliph and the Ottoman Empire would return through the gangster alliance with Qatar, are in fact leading to the implementation of a plan for disaster.”

    He also said that “the West will not allow Turkey to develop militarily in the Mediterranean Sea or acquire the wealth of Libya, but Erdogan’s recklessness and encouragement from those around him made him believe that he could win, but he is heading to a complete disintegration”.

    What we are keeping from Gaddafi’s words is that Libya “has allies” within Turkey, and this triggers scenarios that could completely destabilize the Erdogan regime.

    Given the Syrian-Kurdish co-operation in northern Syria and Damascus supporting Egypt, we can only assume that the above “allies” are well-trained Kurdish and Syrian nuclei, together with Libyan spies, waiting to be ordered to obliterate Turkey from the inside.
