    It depends John, if that did happen they would back off Libya.

    Syria? No, the only way Turky is leaving Syria alone is if they are forced out militarily or some pro-Russian guy gets control since we all know the second option is pure fantasy.

    Ouch. Worse for Turkey is because EU imposed arms embargo on Turkey for invading Rojava, every drone they lose is a drone they can't replace.

    In accordance with the MoU signed in Damascus, the first group of captured Syrian mercenaries will be deported soon. When I mentioned this development to a Hamza Division fighter today, he was dumbfounded. This possibility never occurred to them, and it’s terrifying.

    In written testimony to Congress today, Gen. Stephen Townsend, AFRICOM chief, confirms US suspicions, which I reported last month, that Russian private military contractors are operating SA-22/Pantsir SAMs on behalf of Libyan army and downed a US MQ-9.

    Hahahaha... that is so funny... because Americas corrupt and exploitative investment and security assistance ALWAYS prioritises their own gains and they could not give a shit about anyone or anything but their own interests... transparency, accountability, and respect for human rights... Libya, Egypt, Serbia, Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea, Grenada, Syria, Georgia, Ukraine, Bolivia, Venezuela, Cuba... and pretty much any other country on the planet they have ever had "investment and security assistance" on site is clear evidence Americans don't know the meaning these words and have no ethics or morality worth talking about.

    What they do have is the CIA and NSA and ISIS and Al Quada proxy forces for deniability.

    Pathetic.

    Hilarious mental gymnastics displayed by general Townsend's testimony. They suspect Russians are operating Pantsir's in Libya, but they conveniently forget to mention they were a gift from the U.A.E. So why don't they plan to hold the U.A.E. accountable? Because they buy their weapons that's why lol! Embarassed Rolling Eyes

    Why is Russia supporting the LNA in Libya? Haftar is a CIA asset and a dual American citizen. And also LNA are pro-Wahhabi and pro- American, while the GNA are anti-wahhabi and anti American.

    The LNA is not a jihadi collective of demented mass murderers. A sane government is better than no government. Russia is not
    in the business of regime change and Libya needs stability ASAP. There is no alternative to Haftar for Russia to support and Russia
    for sure does not need another jihadi toilet "state" anywhere on the global map.

    GNA is pro-Turkey and a tool for Turkey to extand its influence in north Africa.

    Haftar is a common doctator that wants money. Russians will be able to sell him weapons if they support him. Europeans can counter the turkish dreams there by supporting him. Russians doesn't care about who is rulling Lybia, that's EU's problem since its from there that comes all the migrants. But Haftar will need to rebuild its army so they may sell him some 50 mig-35, 2 or 3 Corvettes, 2 kilo sub, probably some 100-200 t-90M.

    I doubt however that Haftar could unite all the tribes in Lybia.

    Maybe Gaddafi's son could do it though.

    In the meanwhile if Haftar and Erdogan's militants are occupied against each other, well not too bad.

    4 Turkish soldiers, chief Syrian mercenary killed in Libya


    "Ghazwy clarified that the Turkish soldiers were killed duringLNA'ssiege of Ain Zara district that started on March 17," as reported by Al Arabiya. The Syrian chief militant died as a result of his injury after he had been captured by the LNA.

    The mercenary confessed that 10 Turkish soldiers and eight Syrians fled after the ACV-15 armored combat vehicle carrying them was targeted by the LNA on Sunday as it crossed a defensive line to launch an attack.

    Big moves in the west. First the GNA strikes south, is beaten back which leads to what seems to be a rout. That was yesterday.

    Now the LNA appears to own much of the country along the coast west of Tripoli. Map hasn't caught up.

    ICYMI- a drop tank from a Mirage 2000 (possibly dropped after being engaged by #LNA SAM) recovered in central #Libya.

    This is huge, as it would make it either UAE (Egypt less likely and France even less) and potentially almost a blue-on-blue, or Qatari, which is unprecedented.

    #Libya- photos of what the #LNA claims is a "UAV that was shot down with missiles near Zelten oil field"

    Very unusual AO and the object doesn't relly look like a UAV.
    Is this a drop tank? potentially from an aircraft that was actually engaged by SAM?
