Support SouthFront

A military helicopter that was transporting Russian private military contractors has crashed near al-Jufra Air Base in Libya’s central region, Brig. Gen. Abdul Hadi Dara, a spokesman for the Government of National Accord (GNA) Sirte-Jufra Operations Room, claimed on September 23.

The helicopter, which was also carrying weapons, allegedly crashed near the town of Sawknah, to the southwest of al-Jufra. Several explosions were heard in the region.

Brig. Gen. Dara told the Turkish Anadolu Agency that at least four PMCs of the Wagner Group has lost their lives in the helicopter crash.

“The helicopter was on its way to one of the oil fields used by Russian mercenaries as an operations room,” the spokesman said.

Russian PMCs have been reportedly supporting the Libyan National Army (LNA) operations against GNA forces for more than a year now.

Brig. Gen. Dara’s claims were dismissed by a Telegram channels affiliated with Russian PMCs. The channel said no personnel were killed in the helicopter accident.

According to a recent report by the Pentagon’s Inspector General, around 3,000 PMCs of the so-called Wagner Group are present in Libya along with 2,000 affiliated Syrian PMCs.

GNA forces on the other side are relying a strike force of Turkish-backed Syrian militants. The total number of militants is reportedly between 5,000 and 18,000, hundreds of whom are minors.

Lone Ranger

Seems SOHR is making Disney stories in Lybia too…

Sauron

Lone Ranger

CIAisis…
Sure.

Sauron

whoever, as long as the foreigners that claim not to be there die:)))

Black Waters

As many americunts had die in the same or even worst ways taking in consideration how this job works, PMCs/contractors are one of the most toughest and dangerous jobs out there, people who do this know the consequences and the risk.

Many U.S contractors had died around the world but we don’t see it on the news, in this case the point of it it’s to politicize it, the difference here is that Wagner has a propose.

Lone Ranger

80,000+ CIAisis contractors dead…

Sauron

is Wagner gonna put a ring on your finger?

Fog of War

Contactors / Mercenaries are scum and deserve to be killed on the spot, Russian or otherwise.

cechas vodobenikov

mainly true except for some in Iraq—US casualties are rarely reported in US media

Black Waters

Also, we don’t even know if this is true or fake news.

Sauron

fake of course. Russians are not there, hence cannot die. So whoever is killing who, its a full green light

Servet Köseoğlu

you are wrong anything related with russian military is supreme russian soldiers can not be killed ,russian helos can not involve in crash..:))))

Harry Smith

They can’t be Russian soldiers. If the Wagner group exist it’s members most likely are not Russian citizens. Mercenary is penal crime in Russia. Even those 32 “wagner” personnel arrested in Belorussia were from Donbass and not Russian Federation.

Servet Köseoğlu

ı know…ı am mocking with the accounts here…

Lone Ranger

BS alert…

2,000 affiliated Syrian PMCs, not bloody likely.
Let Russia clean up another one of the OBAMA/BIDEN wars they did a great job cleaning up Syria.
The US had co-existed with ISIS in Syria fighting their common enemy Assad the freely elected leader of the country. Both ISIS and the US invaded and occupy Syria. ISIS not so much since Russia got there.

AM Hants

Talking of Biden/Obama plus son, have you seen the report released today with regards dodgy dealings with Burisma? Article over on Gateway Pundit, reporting the story, with links into the official report.

R Gfy

The coup in Ukraine was an Obama’s CIA operation. Creating more peace and harmony around the world. I would have included Biden but he was too busy looting the country with his crack head son.

R Gfy

Where did “Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar” live prior to this campaign? He lived in the US in Northern Va pretty close to HQ. Who was he working with at the time and I still believe working with them now?

Are you on medication ?

Angry Birds

Is there medication treating autism ?

Fog of War

Yes, stop drinking Mercury.

Lilly Bloom

I need some, Fog. Could you lend me some of yours? I suppose you’re on daily multiple doses of Xanax and Paxil. Am I correct?
Trump 2020!

Fog of War

Hi Mrs. Khazar. You’ll be happy to know I dont do pharmaceuticals. Not even pain medication. I dont even drink alcohol. Thank you for your concern however.

Lilly Bloom

“Khazar?” Now, Fog, you know that was just plain mean of you. You might truly need a drink, or Lexapro at least. It’s for mild madness. Hang hard! I’m going to give you some air. You better be thankful!

Fog of War

” I’m going to give you some air. ”
Hot air ?

Lilly Bloom

Nope, I’ve read some of your comments and conclude that you’re young and about half-ignorant about who is whom in respect to the people you often make comments about. So I will not pound you and hope you’ll mature and wise up a bit about your subject matter. That’s all!

Fog of War

What a pompous self important attitude . In your entitled opinion you actually assume that people care about what you have to say. BTW, I don’t care one bit about who you may be. Don’t waste my time, go play somewhere else.

Lilly Bloom

Don’t press it, Fog! That air I’m giving you is not a permanent thing! Don’t forget it, either. My only advice: Grow up son, and strop reading “Stromfront.”

Fog of War

Ok Khazar. Enjoy the time you have left.

If your looking for some blow, Hunter can hook you up.

Anadolu Agency is a Turkish propaganda / disinformation outlet, so take everything they say with a tablespoon of salt. They’re well known for spewing laughably inaccurate BS in support of Erdogan’s regime.

The fact is that no Turkish sources would be anywhere near any such incident, so they’re obviously just fabricating such claims.

cechas vodobenikov

there are many private militias—US has the most…some claim that they guard military installations, embassies, etc. Petroleum enterprises employ them to protect oil production, refineries, etc..there may be a legal distinction between mercenaries and private security services, however in practice they are often quite similar

Felipe Luker

Russia is wasting time and giving wings to NATO; it only has to force the two countries to observe the truce in a truly pragmatic way, declaring an air exclusion zone for the two countries and the one who does not respect it to bombard. Cancel the site from where Disrespect without hesitation, and this will be the only way to guarantee and be a fair and responsible guarantor….Yeah
