The plane Military-air forces (VVS) of the national consensus government (NTC) of Libya with the call sign “al-Wefaq” made a RAID on the opposition TNC forces of the Libyan national army (LNA) field Marshal Khalifa the Haftarot.
According to media sources, the airstrike was inflicted on the airfield of the military base of El Watia. Subsequently major General, LNA, Abdul Salam al-Hassi, confirmed that the aircraft the government media tried to attack military positions of Libyan national army. Earlier parts of the LDF managed to capture Tripoli international airport, however, controlled by Prime Minister Faiz Saraju forces and the media denied it.
In 2011, after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya and did not have a single government. The country actually broke up into tribal unions living in the desert of the Berbers and the coastal city inhabited by Arabs and descendants of the Italian colonists. Officially supported by the United Nations, the government of Libya, headed by Faiz by Sarraj enjoyed minor popularity in the country that has become a favorable background for the beginning of playing anti-government forces, led by former field Marshal of the Libyan army during the Gaddafi Caliph Haftarot.
While still a cadet, Khalifa Haftar participated in hosted by Mamamara Gaddafi coup d’etat, during which the monarchy was abolished, and Gaddafi came to power. Rising to the highest rank of field Marshal Haftar was commander of Libyan forces during the war of Libya with the African state of Chad in 1987. It is not enough that the war was lost Libya, Haftar also got in captivity.
During his stay in captivity Gaddafi renounced the Haftarot that did not prevent him to organize a coup in Chad, and then to flee to the United States under the auspices of the CIA interested in him as a possible leader antibacterially Libya.
At the moment, one of the main defenders of Haftarot in the international arena is Russia, we can not exclude that a former CIA agent Khalifa Haftar has become interesting as a possible unifier of Libya and partner in military-strategic cooperation. Similarly, the official U.S. diplomacy is not opposed to the Haftarot, apparently for the purpose of preserving it informal levers of influence from the time of his cooperation with the CIA.
We cannot exclude the possibility that the Haftarot is a joint project of Moscow and Washington, who are interested not only in achieving their personal goals, but also in restoring some semblance of order to North Africa, with the aim of preventing the spread of Islamist terrorism on the territory of the “black continent”.
