Click to see the full-size image

A brief overview of the recent developments in Libya:

  • The SOHR claims that 260 more members of Turkish-backed Syrian groups arrived in Libya;
  • Clashes between the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the Government of National Accord (GNA) are ongoing near Tripoli Airport;
  • Turkey deployed I-HAWK PIP-3 and MIM-23 Hawk air defense systems at Mitiga Airport;
  • Eastern Libya ports controlled by the LNA are shutting down oil exports after protesters stormed them. The reason is that the GNA uses the oil export revenues to pay Turkish-backed forces fighting on its side.

It won’t be long before the airport is taken by the LNA. They have the backing of the Libyan people who know that the LNA are fighting for Libya and not some foreign money machine. A few ISIS rats from Idlib are not going to make much difference even though the situation is similar in that the local population hate their guts and will want to see them gone.

It has been a while since USMIC murdered Qaddafi and most of his family. However the Libyan’s are bouncing back and their progress has been rapid. We may yet see a gold Dinar.


Lets see, it took Haftar 3 Years to take Benghazi.
Tripoli is much bigger with stronger opponents.
So after 10 months he is till on the outskirts of Tripoli.

There are a number of possibilities, but only one inevitable result.

There is no Tabu army and Tuareg army, as both tribes announced their affiliation with the Libyan army led by Field Marshal Haftar
