Turkey To Deploy Forces In Libya Within Two Days – Report

The first batch of Turkish troops will be deployed in Libya in the upcoming two days, the al-Arabiya TV reported on January 2 citing Egyptian security sources.

A few hours earlier, the Turkish Grand National Assembly approved a bill presented by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan authorizing the deployment of Turkish troops in Libya to support the UN-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA).

“Turkish officers arrived in Libya today, Thursday, before the Turkish parliament approved the dispatch of troops, the Turkish officers met with leaders of the GNA’s militias,” al-Arabia quoted one of its sources as saying.

The Egyptian sources told al-Arabiya that Ankara also approved a large arms deal with GNA. As a part of the deal, Turkish-made combat drones, air-defense systems and other heavy weapons will be exported to forces supporting the GNA.

A leader in the Libyan National Army (LNA), which is leading an attack on GNA-held Tripoli, had warned that the army will fight any force that would be deployed by Turkey. The LNA’s main backer, Egypt, also criticized Ankara’s decision to intervene in Libya.

Turkey stepped up its involvement in Libya over the last year. Ankara moved from shipping heavy weapons and combat drones to GNA forces earlier this year to deploying hundreds of Syrian mercenaries in the country last month.

    War in another country is so patriotic right up until the body-bags start coming off the planes

      this is not going to happen in Turkey. The Sultan has his people hypnotized with ideas like rebirth of Turkish empire (Ottoman empire) , Turkey ruling all Muslim world etc. the ,will be, dead soldiers will become martyrs to the cause and that’s it.

      • occupybacon

        Depends of the numbers, I was thinking the same about the Saudis when invaded Yemen

  • Hasbara Hunter

    Another version I recently heard was:

    Erdogan is with them Muslims….He wants any foreign Troops out of the Middle East…Libya is strategically very important for Turkey…Control over that part of the Mediterranean with Libya just across Turkey….sounded very logical….

    • Jake321

      Russia, Egypt, Israel and Greece are against him on this. He loses.

    Looks like Erdogun will get his Vietnam…

      Better it be his Gaddafi.

        IRGC commander Soleimani has been eliminated! MAZEL TOV, FELLOW YID! :D

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Indeed, as I wrote yesterday, this will be a contest of the most fuckwit armies in the region, if Egypt has enough balls to take on the Turkeys. My money is on Egypt, but I doubt it that Sisi being a complete Jew shill will do anything without the permission his Americunt and Zionist masters.

      Turkey (NATO) can practice there its well known genocide tactics.

  • John Wallace

    Libya is such a mess hard to see any winners there even if one or the other is sort of in charge for a time. Aren’t both sides as bad as one another so they can keep on killing each other . Peace , freedom and democracy certainly worked out well for this country. Not sure why others don’t want to join the club .

    • George King

      That’s because they (citizens) are not allowed to and we have to remember that unfortunately the ill effects on the governments of these countries despite what their citizens would wish to have from control of their Treasure, Commons and Unalienable rights for the opportunity for forming a more perfect union at home and abroad. Are you sure we have a representative republic included in that description of democracy? That would be a debate all in itself indeed. Maybe a deeper refresher on “War Pigs” would help describe some of what is used against us. Manufactured consent is the Vaseline for the rapi*ng of mankind, then comes the suppression by force when the consent has reached it sale by date.
      Gen’rals gathered in their masses,
      Just like witches at black masses
      Evil minds that plot destruction,
      Sorcerer of death’s construction

      In the fields the bodies burning,
      As the war machine keeps turning
      Death and hatred to mankind,
      Poisoning their brainwashed minds
      Oh Lord yeah

        Thanks , one of my favorite Black Sabbath songs. Too many have forgotten or never knew the anti war songs created by the Viet Nam war of the 60’s. Now it is all about what a Kardashian is wearing.. Boy are they in for a shock soon.

  • Peter Jennings

    Turkish troops or terrorists? Decisions, decisions.

    Things are changing in the ME. US/nato/isreali continued warmongering has made blowback inevitable. If the Turkish admin thinks it can bring peace to Libya, then they are backing the wrong side.
    Maybe it’s a case of too little too late for the GNA and Turkish troops will be withdrawn to save wasting lives on a dead regime. No Turkish soldier dies in Libya and Erdogan still gets to do his oil&gas grab.

    • Jake321

      No he doesn’t since Egypt, Israel, Russia and Greece will not let him do that. His delusional pride comes before his fall. YEH!

  • Ronald

    Hardly a surprise that Muslim Brotherhood Turkey would support the Muslim Brotherhood GNA.
    Unfortunate in that Haftar looks like he could beat the GNA and Libya would be reunited again and peaceful. Maybe he still will !

    Well less Al Qaeda in Idlib, and Qatar gets to shed some of its vast wealth backing Turkey.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Erdogan looks to be cocking a leg up at every lamp post in MENA region, be in Morocco next with a joint military exercise.

  • Raptar Driver

    Turks need another ass wooping to remind them of their depraved state.

  • Jake321

    YEH! Turkey sends troops to back the losers who will face off with Egyptian troops and Russian mercenaries backing the winners. In the meantime, Israel, Cyprus and Greece have signed the gas pipeline agreement to ship Israeli gas to Europe right though the fake Turkish/Libyan EEZ. Pass the popcorn.

  • goingbrokes

    Turkey would do nothing of this kind without getting paid, so who is paying?

          • Dick Von Dast’Ard

            Well I’m sure it is going to lead to an outbreak of peace and love directed towards Israel and America by the Shia community of the region.

            I’d save those tissues for all the tears over your own communities forthcoming dead, if I were you.

  • RichardD

    The government of Iraq needs to expell the US. If the current government won’t do it. One needs to be gotten in place that will.

        The Jews and the US are losing the Syria war. This won’t change that.

  • Jake321

    IRGC Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani head off all Islamist Iranian military and terror operations in the Mideast along with his puppet, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, head of the PMU and all Iranian backed militias in Iraq were just blown away at Bagdad airport by the US based on Israel intel. Such a good day, YEH!!!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Not really dumbass Jew scum, their replacements are always even more determined. This is struggle to the end and as I wrote months ago, these are the opening shots of long war that will end the Zionist scum.

      • Neurasth

        Dont bother with these fucking zionist bastards my friend, soon they will have to fight their own wars and pay for all the atrocities they’ve done. May Soleimani rest in the highest peaks of heaven.

  • SnowCatzor

    Why the heck does the Sultan have such a hard-on for the GNA? It’s a weak, inept government that controls barely any of Libya. What are they promising him I wonder?
