BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) forces managed to destroy two Russian-made air defense systems this week.

According to pro-GNA media, their troops managed to destroy the Russian-made Pantsir-S1 systems in the western region of Libya.

At least one of the Pantsir-S1 systems was reportedly destroyed during the GNA’s capture of the strategic Al-Watiya Airbase, which is located near the Tunisian border.

In addition to destroying two of these systems, the Government of National Accord troops also managed to capture one Pantsir-S1 while taking control of the Al-Watiya Airbase on Monday.

Overall, the capture of the Al-Watiya Airbase for the Government of National Accord forces has proven a major success, as they have managed to push back the Libyan National Army (LNA) from Libya’s northwestern border with Tunisia.
