BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – A statement issued by a spokesman for the forces of the Turkish-backed Government of National Accord in Libya, Colonel Pilot Mohamed Qanunu, said that it was time for the oil to flow again and hit the hands that stopped it.

Qanunu said in a fiery statement: “The time has come for oil to flow again, strike at the sinful hands of the Libyan forces, and end the presence of mercenaries supporting the war criminal who permitted them to land in Libya and use its sky.”

The military spokesman for the GNA stressed that it will continue to “strike the hotbeds of threats wherever they exist and end the outlaw groups who threaten the lives of Libyans throughout the country.”

Qanunu stated that the GNA are going “to our kidnapped cities, to remove the injustice from their sons, and to return their displaced people, and we will extend the authority of the Libyan state over its entire soil, sea, and sky.”

The military spokesman for the GNA sent a message to those who called for support of the Libyan National Army (LNA) commander, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar: “The answer is what you see, not what you hear.”

Turkey’s intervention on the side of the GNA, including dumping thousands of mercenary jihadis from Syria, has resulted in Egypt intervening. This is getting interesting and the battle for Sirte is key for Turkish neo-Ottoman’s ambitions. If I could bet on the outcome I would put a USD 1,000 bet on the Egyptian backed LNA to give the Turks and their proxies a b****y nose in the battle to come especially if the Egyptians use their airforce as a counter-force to the Turkish one. Come on Ladbrokes, Australia, give me reasonable odds….

Egypt has the only effective 5th gen fighter on market and some nice 4th gen ones too with Mirage-2000 and MiG-33. Rafale won’t have issues enforcing a no fly zone, demolishing air defences and sinking ships… at once:omnirole!
