The statement of the Pentagon that Air and space forces (VKS) Russia has deployed to Libya MiG-29 and su-35 and su-24 bombers, looks strange. So said the relevant report of the official representative of the Libyan national army (LNA) field Marshal Khalifa the Haftarot Ahmed al-Mismari, reports TASS.
According to him, is also strange that the American side is not talking about “intervention and expansion of Turkey in our country, about the transfer of tens of thousands of Turkish mercenaries.” The representative of the LNA added that soon will be released a special statement on the situation.
Earlier information about the transfer to Libya of Russian aircraft called the false first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on defense Andrei Krasov. He considered the U.S. a fake and misinformation “in the spirit of previous us administrations”.
Africa command of the US Armed forces on may 26, said that Libya had deployed Russian combat aircraft. It was explained that they first were in Syria, where they are repainted to hide the Russian origin.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on may 25 announced that it will send several thousand Syrian fighters to Libya to fight with the national army led by field Marshal Haftarot. It was noted that Ankara has already sent 500 representatives of the Pro-Turkish groups in Libya, the Turkish leader plans to send at least 3400 mercenaries, members of the Syrian armed opposition.
Libya after the start in 2011, the civil war, the overthrow and murder ruled the country since 1969, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi appeared in a situation of dual power. Turkey, along with the forces of the national consensus government (NTC) is struggling to push the LNA field Marshal the Haftarot.
