LNA Spokesperson Says Attack On Sirte Incoming, Despite No Apparent Movements From Turkey

On July 14th, the spokesperson of the Government of National Accord’s (GNA) forces, Mohammed Gununu said “it’s time we have crushed the malicious hands toying with Libyan oil resources”.

Speaking to media, Gununu said that oil must start pumping as usual once again and the presence of pro-Haftar mercenaries must be eliminated, saying Haftar had allowed the mercenaries to control Libyan soil and skies.

Gununu said the Turkish-backed GNA forces will liberate the “kidnapped cities” to allow the displaced people to return to their homes so that the GNA can control the entire country: “sea, land and skies”.

“We are going to defend ourselves all the time and attack all the threat hubs wherever they are.” Gununu indicated, saying they are committed to eliminating the outlaw armed groups across Libya.

“We promise Libyans that the crimes of Haftar’s militias, including mass graves, and planting mines, won’t go unpunished.” He remarked.

Still, however, there are no hostilities on the ground.

The spokesperson of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s forces, Brigadier General Ahmed al-Mesmari said that a big battle for Sirte was nearing on the evening of July 14th, but nothing of the sort took place.

He also said that there were major movements of the GNA and Turkey, but his claims are the only reports on the matter.

A video was published online of a purported Libyan National Army (LNA) convoy moving towards Sirte in preparation of a potential attack by the GNA.

There was also intense aircraft activity by the LNA above Jufra and Sirte. An attack was expected to take place, but it seems that Turkey and the GNA are still priming themselves for an offensive.

The official invitation for a military intervention by Egypt in the scenario that Turkey and the GNA attack Sirte may have complicated the incoming offensive on the cities. It is unlikely that it has been entirely deterred.

The GNA’s Volcano of Rage operation room also released photographs purportedly showing military supplies from Egypt in the city of Tobruk where the House of Representatives is based.

An IL-76 with an unknown cargo was also seen arriving at Al-Khadim Air base, near Benghazi.

West should rot in hell.
They have destroyed so many peaceful countries that were very nice place for living
And have killed so many people directly and indirectly in that process.
Libya is certainly on of those countries.

johnny rotten

If Libya, Syria and Iraq coordinate and attack Turkish forces at the same time, everyone will win his battle, the Turks cannot fight 3 or 4 wars at the same time, they must also beware of Greece, in the end the Turks will have nothing left to do but mount the horses and go back to Mongolia, where they came from.


Iraq is against Turkey only at declarative level cause Turkey attacking Kurds on the Iraq teritory is practically doing their job. Plus Iran is more friendly with Qatar than with UAE. Egypt side with Israel. So doesn’t make much sense.

Turkish Armed Forces are shaped to the Two and half war principle from NATO doctrine. TAF can fight at 2 Big and 1 small wars at same Time.
For TAF, Libya is just a small theatre, considering that there are no fighting Forces.
Iraq is a fight against small troops….also not big theatre.


If they don’t forget to switch their antyaircraft guns on……useless and incompetent . Erdogogoun has dismembered your real army. You are fighting the biggest war internally! The other big one is your economy!there is your Two big wars……….


I actually cheer up when I see our “enemies” like you lol
So ignorant, so far away from real politics, living in a pure fantasy. Keep this attitude dude, you are on the right track.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
