BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – The Turkish-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) forces announced on Friday a new raid on a strategic airbase in the southern countryside of Tripoli.

According to the official Facebook of the GNA-affiliated “Volcano Rage” operation, their air force bombed the Libyan National Army’s (LNA) positions at the Al-Watiya Airbase.

The Volcano Rage page said they destroyed at least one truck at the base that was carrying logistical equipment and ammunition to the Libyan National Army.

The spokesman for the GNA forces, Colonel Tayyar Muhammad Qanunu, said in his tweet:

“The Libyan Air Force targeted on Thursday evening, the positions of the Haftar terrorist militia at the Al-Watiya Air Force Base. A truck carrying logistical equipment and an ammunition supply to the Haftar terrorist militia at the Wadi Dinar Gate before it reached Tarhouna.”

This announcement by the GNA forces comes just a day after the Libyan National Army announced the downing of two Turkish aircraft, likely drones, over the Tripoli countryside.

For myself, if a so-called government like the GNA has to bomb an airbase just south of their capital, Tripoli, then they are in serious trouble. Just saying….

ROFL! Haftar is not only backed by UAE, Egypt and Russia, he’s also backed by France, Italy, Saudi-Arabia and USA. We’d better had given the 31 remaining SEPECAT Jaguars to Haftar rather than to India, and same thing for the sale of remaining Mirage-F1s to ATAC… Well, since there are Super-Etendards left, maybe could we give these to Haftar? And if Turkey wants to send arms cargoes, well, the Exocet missile is by far the #1 ship-wrecking missile around, having sunk more ships than all other anti-ship missiles on market and the R.550 Magic 2 can take care of creating… Read more »

You continue to throw out misinformation and need to get your facts straight. France supports the LNA while both Italy and the USA support the GNA thus putting NATO members on different sides of the Libyan Civil War.
