Warming up for war in Sirte

“Parliament: (Egyptian) Forces will counter armed criminal militia and “foreign terrorist elements” (talking about Syrian Forces from TFSA fighting for GNA) ”

After having suffered from a devastating defeat on the out skirts of #Tripoli, supporters of Haftar are eager to divide Libya into three.

#Haftar militias controlling Port #Sidra and Oil Crescent put the oil forward to rationalize their partition plan.

Also good time to mention that over the past weekend the Turkish backed GNA forces in Libya were amassing west of Sirte.

Algerian President Abdelmajid Taboun warned of the efforts that appeared in the last 24 hours to arm the Libyan tribes, stressing that this will turn Libya into a new Somalia.

Taboun said, in a press interview with the local media at the Algerian presidential headquarters, on Sunday, that his country is in constant contact with the parties of the Libyan crisis and outside it and insist on the necessity of giving priority to the political solution, and that they are in constant contact with Russia, France, Egypt and Turkey, calling on the various parties to leave the Libyan people Determine their destiny.

It is reported that a number of those claiming to represent the Libyan tribes and sheikhs have submitted an “authorization” to Egyptian President Abdelfattah Alsisi for direct military intervention in Libya.

It is noteworthy that the Egyptian President Abdelfattah Alsisi said, last Thursday, that he was ready to arm the Libyan tribes to form a unified Libyan army.

“Libya’s internationally recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) on Saturday moved fighters closer to Sirte, a gateway to Libya’s main oil terminals that the GNA says it plans to recapture from the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA).

Witnesses and GNA military commanders said a column of about 200 vehicles moved eastwards from Misrata along the Mediterranean coast towards the town of Tawergha, about a third of the way to Sirte.

The GNA recently recaptured most of the territory held by the LNA in northwest Libya, ending eastern commander Khalifa Haftar’s 14-month campaign to take the capital, Tripoli, before the new front line solidified between Misrata and Sirte.

Backed by Turkey, the GNA has said it will recapture Sirte and an LNA airbase at Jufra.”
