Turkish Air Force air strikes Al-Jufra base in Libya

Thursday, 9 July, 2020 - 10:45

Twitter users reported the destruction of equipment, as well as dozens of those killed and injured in the heavy aerial bombardment of the Libyan base of Al-Jufra from Turkey.  The facility is located 600 kilometers southeast of Tripoli.
On the night of July 5, military installations at the Al-Vatyya air base in Libya were destroyed by unknown fighters.  We are talking about three air defense systems MIM-23 Hawk and Ukrainian means of electronic warfare and radar.  Who is behind the airstrike is unknown.
It is important to consider that the military zone is under the occupation of terrorists of the so-called Libyan National Accord Government (PNC), which Turkey actively supports.
The attack on Al-Vatuyu killed more than a hundred militants of the so-called Government of National Accord (PNS) and Turkish troops - a total of 50-55 people, said Aydin Adnan Sezgin, a member of the Good Party (İYİ Parti).  The chief of the General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces, Yashar Guler, was injured.
There is no evidence that the Libyan National Army (LNA) is responsible for the attack.  According to media reports, the UAE or France from Egypt or Algeria could hit a military facility.
Despite this, on Wednesday, July 8, information appeared on Twitter about Turkey’s “strong and fast” strike.  LNA positions in the Sukan area in Al-Jufra were shelled and aerial bombardment.  The federal news agency reported several dozen injured.
