    Yet his forces are defeating the LNA right now.

    They aren't bombing anywhere because they lost one of their fighters and are too afraid to get back into the fight.

    Depends on his own or with international aid? because at this point he ain't winning unless a major player starts helping him actively.

    He only wins when his forces seize the capital, All those nations are just supporting him with words nothing more.

    Words in politics are worthless.

    But hey if you want to consider words meaningful Lazrov called for Haftar to seize his "advance" seven or so hours ago.

    Both sides are composed of militias. There is no army and no one will control anything in Lybia for a long time.

    Investing in this country right now is worthless. Even stupid.

    Even if he got the capital, it will be as safe for him as Baghdad is for GIs.

    In the meantime, the military continues its operations to regain the rest of the country. Islamists have been successfully driven away from Ghaylan all the way to Aziziyah. M109 howitzers were extensively used in the operation. attack

    The Libyan National Army (LNA) has imposed control of the area of al-Sbeaa south of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, the army’s media office confirmed on May 2.

    Al-Sbeaa is located on a key highway leading to the southern part of Tripoli. The area links the Libyan capital, which is controlled by forces loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA), with the towns recently captured by the LNA in the southern part of the country.

    Over the last few days, pro-GNA forces launched several counter attacks and even attempted to flank LNA forces south of Tripoli. However, these attempts failed and the LNA is apparently still advancing towards the capital.

    The upcoming few days will likely witness more advance by the LNA, whose leadership is still determined to capture Tripoli as soon as possible. The GNA’s failed counter-attacks may have weakened the defensive positions around the capital.

    They already lost that position.

    Turkish armored vehicles Kirpi II in Libya

    Erdogan began on a grand scale to fulfill the recent promise to render all possible support to the Government of National Accord (Unity) led by Faiz Sarraj against Field Marshal Haftar, the Libyan National Army. Let me remind you that in late April, in a conversation with Sarraj, Erdogan promised to stand firm on the side of the PNS and use all the opportunities of Turkey to say: "prevent a plot against the Libyan people."

    Judging by the photos and videos that appeared today [May 18, 2019], as part of the fulfillment of these promises, a ship of the new BMC Turkish Kirpi II armored vehicles arrived at the Libyan Tripoli port in Turkey from Turkey. Thus, in Libya we now have Turkish armored vehicles that will fight against the armored vehicles Panthera T6, Panthera F9, etc. supplied by the United Arab Emirates for the troops of Haftar.

    Haftar has backings from UAE,SA,US,France and Russia combined. I am really curious about each backing country's intention in doing that.

    At the end of the day, Haftar will have to decide his final partner in building his own reign. He cant pursue this club dance with all backers forever.

    GNA is not perfect option for a suitable government for Libya though, but at least they were the legitimate structure after Libyan conflict. Thats why they have a seat in UN.

    Haftar is number one threat for Turkey in Libya as he accepts European demands on giving up EEZ borders that Turkey assumes mutual with Libya. Haftar literally betrays to his own country by doing so.

    What Russians would benefit from him is another story yet to be seen and understood.

    I'm not sure the US actively supports him- IMO they just don't support the GNA. EEZs of Libya & Turkey r too far apart- Italy's EEZ, the closest to Libya, is none of Turkey's business.

    Libyan eastern most EEZ border does border Turkey's western most EEZ boundary. Greek claims nullify Turkish coastline effect but it is unfair. Thats why Libya is crucial for Turkish claims.

    As for Italy they support GNA as well.

    The Turks support his rivals.

    The LNA lost Gharyan two days ago, his offensive has failed and stalled out.

    Has I said, unless he can win and fast he will get bogged down and fail.

    With two battalions defecting from the GNA it is less about controlling ground and more about loyalty.  Hafter has the oil which Total is paying royalties directly to him for his protection.  GNA has no funds.

    GNA is being funded by the ones who want them to remain in control of the Capital if that funding stops then sure the LNA will have no hard time with em.

    Those were weak and undermanned divisions, I agree any defection hurts the GNA but it wasn't two full-strength battalions.

    Russia definitely does NOT back Haftar.  He is a French and Arab pawn.  

    FGM-148 Javelins that were captured from of Field Marshal Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA), by the Government of the National Accord (PNS), belonged to French special forces and were in stock, as they were damaged and temporarily stored for subsequent destruction.
    But this explanation then actually puts the situation in such a way that it turns out that French special forces are on the side of LNA. France’s support for Haftar is certainly not a secret, but Paris somehow tried not to advertise its direct participation in the Tripoli attack.

    Chinese are probably trying to buy some of them to GNA and they will probably succeed. So IMO in two or 3 months there will be a chinese Javelin presented for export.

    The Javelin's been around for 2 decades, if they wanted a copy, they would have done it already.
