A brief overview of the recent developments in Libya:
- According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the number of Turkish-backed Syrian militants killed in Syria grew to 117;
- The LNA strikes Tripoli’s Mitiga Airport on a regular basis. This forced Turkish-backed forces to redploy most of its equipment to other facilities;
- Pro-GNA sources claim that strikes on LNA positions near Souk El Khamis caused large casualties among the LNA personnel;
- Pro-Turkish sources claim that Russia and the UAE increased military supplies to the LNA.
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 ??.
Trump is the most unreliable world leader ever ! You can’t take anything he says seriously.
