Pinpoint Libyan Airstrikes Destroyed Turkish Air-Defense System In Al-Watiya Air Base

Support SouthFront

The Libyan Air Force has destroyed a Turkish MIM-23 Hawk air-defense system in al-Watiya Air Base in western Libya, a source in the Libyan National Army (LNA) told the media on July 5.

According to the source, nine pinpoint airstrikes targeted the Hawk air-defense system and a KORAL electronic warfare system that was stationed nearby.

“We were monitoring the deployment and installation of a Hawk air-defense system along with its attached radars by the Turkish occupation for the last few days,” the source told Libya al-Hadath, adding “today the Turkish Minister of Defense was informed while he was in Misrata that the Uqba bin Nafeh [al-Watiya] base had become ready for use so the LNA decided to destroy it [the system] after it entered service,”

The source went on to claim that the Hawk air-defense system was “100%” destroyed as result of the airstrikes. Large explosions were reported in the base. However, the results of the airstrikes remain uncertain.

Recently released satellite images revealed the Turkish Hawk system is stationed in the southern part of al-Watiya Air Base. The system was deployed in the base earlier this month.

The Hawk’s 45 km range makes its lethal for unmanned combat aerial vehicles, which are used by the LNA’s allies. The system was likely deployed to address this threat.

If confirmed, the destruction of the system would be a major blow to Turkey’s plans for Libya. Recent reports revealed that Ankara is working to turn al-Watiya into a permanent base for its troops in the Arab country.

It is time for Turkey to pay a price. Hope this news is true and not wishful thinking.

Giauru mă! Giauru!

Brother Ma

It was brought in to kill unmanned drones but they didn’t think to have AA against aeroplanes ?
Can this be real?
Why would they not have AA to also defend against aeroplanes?

Anyone tell me ? No jokes please ,just tell me what happened and why.

Anyone heard anything new about the two “missing” Turk subs?

©igare☘☘e?Sm⚽️k?ng?Man️?

They had the ancient hawk systems.
They got efed in the A!

Don’t mind me …I’m just a disilussioned pro -Putinist venting…

What did they use? Is it them Mig 29s?

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) –

Jets hit Libya’s al-Watiya airbase where Turkey may build base, sources say.
Last month, the United States said Russia had sent at least 14 MiG29 and Su-24 warplanes to an LNA base via Syria, where their Russian airforce markings were removed.

Turkish involvement in Libya has also angered France and Greece and French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has warned of new sanctions on Ankara.

The GNA and LNA are now mobilising forces at the new frontlines between the cities of Misrata and Sirte. Egypt has warned that any Turkish-backed effort to take Sirte, which the LNA captured in January, could lead its army to directly intervene.

Reuters, yes Al Masdar News basically says the same.

gryzor84

as always he fails to read and accept the true underlying agendas and ploys of his opponents until they score one time against his interests. Then he retalitates with force.He’s into reaction more than anticipation. It took him way too long to come to the aid of his Syrian ally hence has to deal with the consequences of extended frozen conflict to this day and comitted time and again the same mistake in the Idlib proto-war. His aversion for conflict and taking definitive stances of any kind with any given party and his obsession with dealing with every actor involved everywhere even in intenable scenarios instead and delving into outdated old-school gentlemen’s agreements actually provoke the opposite effects to his intended endgame : very little diplomatic benefit and heavy additionnal geopolitical costs.

Here is another hopeless one trying to rant from an explosion in civilian fireworks company . Can you tell me why you are so closely following TR local news while noone here cares here what is going there in Greece ?

After all , Greek boy , this is war. No pain , no gain. Everything can happen.
It is not for some daydreamers like you waiting at their homes and expecting regional influence while you can do nothing other than throwing hot air.

mhtsaropinigitakis

nobody caring what happens in a country means that the country is safe there is no trouble and ppl leave in peave there…not like you big circus of a country with hundreds of deaths of Turkish ppl …Turkish ppl life matters less than a homeless cats life…congratulations!

Sencer

Man, dont try to find excuses for your obsession in Turkish matters. You are actually following and commenting on Turkish domestic issues , even on accidents in some civilian factories.

Thats a big country with about 90 mio , thus more deaths. If you are so sensitive about homeless cat’s lives , look at the nuclear accidents in yr beloved Russia. But of course you wont, because it wont help your arguments.

Thanks for yr concern , though.

mhtsaropinigitakis

soon to get those accidents in your country also ahahahah…Russians are making you nuclear station…damn u are so funny.. also stop stalking me are u some kind of pervert?

Sencer

You are the one replying with yr stupidities and yr desperate laughters. Go solve yr problems in yr own mickey mouse country first before digging into turkish domestic news and trying to push civilian accidents as military assaults.

If you dont like being answered , don’t post in an anonymous forum, you thick pervert.

oh looks is the pervert child molestor in the forums again stalking me!…look guys its him!

FANFARONE

Spencer, dear, nationalists are brainwashed no matter where they come from.

How do you mean research vessels from TR are drilling in our EEZ ?
Perhaps you have in mind those vessels researching in cypriot EEZ which does not operate a navy or an airforce. This issue is already addressed by the cypriot authorities in a different manner than the greek authorities will respond once you try drilling or researching within our maritime zones. Turkish warships and any other warship for that matter are free to roam in international waters though.

Quite possibly yes. It may have also been either the UAE or Egypt, but whoever did it was clearly a more professional force than the LNA themselves.

Incidents of police brutality have been on the rise across Turkey during the curfews imposed against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, with new footage showing police officers hitting or mistreating citizens surfacing on social media nearly everyday.

A large group of police officers in the Çorlu district of the northwestern province of Tekirdağ beat a man sitting in front of his house on the first day of Eid al-Fitr on May 24.

According to social media user Ali Osman Önder, who shared the video, a police officer carrying out curfew controls told Dursun Gültaş, who was sitting in front of his house, to go inside while hurling insults at the man.

Hyper20

What? Would it be acceptable if they were Christian refugees? Because Turkey surely invited 4 million refugees! And not because some madman was bombing the crap out of them—because he couldn’t handle some protests.
Anyway since Greece is part of the refugee convention, it’s up for them to create liveable hygienic housing like Turkey did, whether they want it or not.

“Whats is muslim Turkey doing with Christians?”
Maybe you should read how these Christians took advantage of a dying empire and started massacring the muslims with whom they lived for centuries.

P.S you got something with male genitals??

You are on the Muslim side, I am on the Christian (Orthodox) side. We support two irreconcilable sides, any discussion is meaningless and a solution can only be achieved with weapons. Until the meeting…

M.A. Lamett

There is no such thing as “Libyan Air Force”. It is most probably a foreign major power coordinated flown plane. If the bombing is real (meaning no fake news, aka disinformation), I suspect either France or Russia being behind this event. It will be evident soon. France is a quite sneaky Zionist Occupied Country (ZOC) and Russia is also run by 80% jewish oligarcy, with Putin being the rubber stamp president. If true, most likely there was a zionist controlled operation behind it. We will see the truth soon.

Six Turkish officers and a senior commander have been killed, according to Twitter activists.

Nine Turkish targets were hit and a video of the powerful and devastating air raid was released.
