The three discussed further deepening of defense cooperation between Turkey and Libya, as well as involving Qatar into the mix.

It was stated that a number of military cooperation agreements were signed during the meetings. In this context, as reported by Al Arabiya, Turkey, Qatar and Libya’s GNA have signed a military cooperation agreement.

Qatar will finance military training centers to be established under the agreement. A trilateral coordination center will be established in Misrata, Libya.

“In addition, the parties agreed to send Qatari military advisers to Libya to train the Libyan military, as well as to provide Libya with places in Turkish and Qatari military schools,” the website of the Al Arabiya TV channel said. The purpose of the agreement is “to increase the combat capability of military units subordinate to the GNA.”

Also, within the scope of the agreement, a Turkish naval base will be established in Misrata.

According to reports, work is being carried out at al-Watiya to turn into a full-fledged Turkish military air base.

There was earlier official announcement by the Turkish side saying that both al-Watiya and Misrata would be provided for operation to the Turkish Armed Forces.

Images from August 13th, showed that a Gabya-class frigate, part of the Turkish Navy could be seen off the coast of Misrata.

There is also a Sikorsky S-70B-28 Seahawk helicopter in the images.

Currently, Turkey is hard at work in deploying UAVs and air defense systems to al-Watiya to reinforce the base for its own use, and the same appears to be going on in Misrata.

When the Naval base is ready, then drilling activities in the Mediterranean Sea by both the GNA and Turkey may begin, under protection from the Turkish base.

Zionism = EVIL

Kiddies, I am no fan or Erdogan’s policies in Syria, but the Turkish military as I have been saying has performed well and has played its cards extremely professionally. They have secured the Libyan coast with a very minimal human investment and retain control of logistics and air power. The Egyptians cunts besides being cowards would have lost in a direct clash with Turkey. It is quite impressive.

ΠΑΡΜΕΝΙΩΝ

Against an organized and professional army, the Turks are … chickens. !!

Cromwell

Bomb it as soon as possible.

Zionism = EVIL

No one has the guts, Turkey can destroy NATO by pulling out and the Americunts are too weak to stand up to it as it will go east as the editorial in Zaman recently pointed out. Only the Egyptian cowards if they had the capability or guts could have made it expensive for Turkey, but Sissy has no balls and can not act without his Zionist and Americunt masters permission. It is like the old SAS motto WHO DARES WINS!

Laurent Parodi

That motto is not always true. Look at napoleon and hitler. They dared but they lost.

Zionism = EVIL

Yes indeed, but were talking Egyptian cunts who are hardly Napoleon or Hitler. Sissy is an illiterate Moroccan Jew cunt who was put in power to suppress Egyptian majority and Palestinians in Gaza for his Zionist masters, not fight Turkey. That is the way things are.

occupybacon

Yes General, what type of bombs would you think are the best for this mission?

Кристофер Петров

Perhaps we can send you there to be an American representative, just makesure not to wet yourself when the Egyptian airforce or LNA show up :)

occupybacon

Send your gf and I will wet her like she never was before.

Кристофер Петров

occupybacon

That’s the funnyest stereotype that you have aquired yet?

Кристофер Петров

Broken english welcome aboard… you are not american :)

occupybacon

Did I say I’m American?

Кристофер Петров

No but the context and implications of “some” of ur comments suggest that. I had my doubts however, u havent said some extremely dumb stuff to suggest your american with little doubt.

occupybacon

Most of their political duscutions are civilized, while the pro-Russian comments are mostly curses and painful death wishes. So yeah, thanks for not taking me as one of your comrades at least.

Christopher

The uncivilized murican/zionist comments outweigh the civilizd. I’ve seen Iron Teenager call for the extermination of all syrians, palestinians, iranians, russians, and arabs.

occupybacon

Those are exceptions. For example here, nuke zionazis wishes are daily prayers and you can observe the salty attitude on many free to play online games where are Russians, mostly are curses

Christopher Petrov

yes lots of cyka blyats

occupybacon

That’s on CS. This days I play SC (star craft 2)

Zionism = EVIL

NATO did an analysis and cautioned the Egyptian army not to take on Turkish military, which is far better trained and has extensive combat experience. Egyptian military is a typical Arab army based on tribalism and nepotism and has not fought a war since 1973, and even that towards the end was not a very glorious outcome. Egyptian military since then has been killing its own people and Palestinians in Gaza for its Americunt and Zionist masters.

Ronald

Yes a little back up of Haftar would give them some needed experience, otherwise Egypt will be facing Erdogan coming at him from Libya alone.

Jens Holm

Things there has no military solution. The E gyption Regime has its own very big problems.Those also are not solved by no change.

They had their chanches bey the free elections, but the population were blinded by religios extremists which would make Egypt to a Country, where milions of Egyptions were criminalized by their faith or lack of same.

Now they have the same military rule as they came from in a declining lower level.

Its far out any Egyptions should be killed well assisted by Haftar or anybosy else there.

Whats the experiance for being dead before time?? If people know it is: I am spendable for nothing and Ronald.

Jens Holm

Evil nonsense.

listen boy..ı dont know how old are you..lets make things clear…Not any Turkish general could say such a stupid claim publickly…they arent allowed…Both countries are Nato members…take a good sleep,enjoy life.. war will not gonna happen..but somehow you wanna proof yourself in a childish way…besides as a fact you dont have a population to continue a war against Turkey..all these nato shit france,germany is a joke…USA KNOWS THİS ONLY TURKS CAN ENTER THE FİELD between nato members….I am not claiming that we are superior but we have balls..greek army,danish army,netherlands etc all europe..you are already outdated conformist people who can not risk your own lives but we can. You can keep posting bullshit at social media you are allowed to do that. We are already at field at north ıraq,syria,libya…ı dont think you can afford and show ball just like we are doing…just take a look at posts here ..half is about Turkey..we are always popular,top-dog because we dare

If you do have balls, why did you ask for assistance from Nato & EU, back in February, when, for first time, you took serious casualties against the SAA ? Why do you use, in such an extend, merceneries in both Syria and Libya ? Dont you have any voluntiers to do the dirty work ? Your airbase in Libya was bombarded. Why didnt you retaliate ? Dont you know you attacked you ?

Servet Köseoğlu

smells russian trolls again…any evidence or proof that we ask assistance from nato or eu?no…serious casulaties against saa…wtf….russian super ego at its best again…of course ı will use mercenaries… everyone is using…we captured the airbase and navl base…retaliation against who?france,uae,egypt co…we can retaliate whenver we want…mission accomplished…

Russian troll ?? Nope I will help your memory, with the assistance of a turkey-friendly news agencey from Qatar https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/03/erdogan-demands-concrete-support-eu-nato-syria-200309183710499.html No serious casualties from SAA ? https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/02/turkish-soldiers-killed-air-raid-syria-idlib-200227211119672.html

Dont ask me against who to retaliate Ask your military leaders Do they know who attacked & destroyed your AA systems in Al-watiya ?

Mission accoplished ? What was exactly the mission ? https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/07/turkey-ceasefire-libya-benefit-gna-200713204628362.html No, mission is not accoplished yet. If the current situation lasts for long, then there will be a split in Libya between turkish friendly west and egyptian frienldy east Does this help your nation’s interests ?

Servet Köseoğlu

its about refugees not military intervention…come on we are at the syrian soil from 2016 and all of a sudden we remind call help from nato this year…yes mission accomlished we captured tripoli from terrorists ..huge naval base is on the way…but you earned my respect..you dont write bullshit and stupid photoshop stuff..you are worthy..thank you..

I didnt mean military intervention Political intervention and economic assistance is what you asked for And what do we ask from EU now ? We ask for political intervention and economic sanctions against persons and institutions (like TPAO).

I always try to talk in a civilised manner, thank you for your words

Servet Köseoğlu

eu already tried political intervention many times not mentioning giving shelters to terrorists…please waht ae these french frigates for?base at south cyprus?..anyway all these stuff is the nature of the battle until you defeat what cowers you,you cannot truly becomes yourself but to do that you must break the shackles that hold you down which we are doing now.Everycountry has gone or has to go through metamorphosis we are experiencing. well finally mate: violence is never the right answer unless used against devils,monsters and subhumans like us.(this is your nations way of thinking about us and ı am sure you too…but you should know: to become a monster,sub human,terrorist whatever like us is to admit you were too weak to remain human….too late…

The Muslim brotherhood is a cancer that sooner or later will be eradicated, its expansion through Turkey has the approval of israhell and the North American Zionist colony, otherwise it means that the americunts have become too weak to oppose it, tertium non datur.

I see what they are doing. Instead of capturing Sirte, they are moving south to pump the oil, buy it cheap and move back to Turkey to refine and process in chemical plants. Seems like the process of diving Libya is on the way. Gaddafi was right, but well, he is dead now.

Egypt is making a mistake by allowing the Turks time to embed themselves in Libya. They should strike early with massive force and give Erdogan a chance to leave before he’s too committed. At the moment, Turkey’s forces in Libya are pretty small.

Mustafa Mehmet

Small force but very very Powerful if they try God knows what’s going to happen
