Libyan militants overrun Benghazi special forces base as chaos deepens





BENGHAZI, Libya, July 29 (Reuters) - Militant fighters overran a Libyan special forces base in the eastern city of Benghazi on Tuesday after a battle involving rockets and warplanes that killed at least 30 people.





A special forces officer said they had to abandon their main camp in the southeast of Benghazi after coming under sustained attack from a coalition of Islamist fighters and former rebel militias in the city. ...





Intense fighting in Benghazi, Libya's second city, and battles between rival militias in the capital Tripoli have pushed the nation deeper into chaos after two weeks of the fiercest violence since the civil war which ousted Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.





Benghazi has been at the centre of fighting between special forces and ex-rebel fighters of the Benghazi Shura Council who have joined up with the Ansar al Sharia, a militant Islamist group, residents said.





Ansar al Sharia, classified as a terrorist organisation by Washington, has been blamed by authorities for attacking the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in 2012 when the U.S. ambassador was killed.

Libya violence escalates with 22 killed in battle for Tripoli airport





Libya’s interim government says a day of militia fighting for control of the international airport in the capital Tripoli has killed 22 people.





In a statement early Sunday, it said “heavily armed groups” have shelled “civilian targets” endangering thousands of citizens and leaving hundreds of families displaced.





The 22 people were killed on Saturday alone, the latest casualties in fighting that has claimed more than 200 lives in recent weeks. ...





Libya is in the grip of its worst violence since the 2011 uprising that toppled longtime dictator Muammar Gadafy.





Islamist militias from the coastal city of Misrata have led the assault on airport, seeking to seize it from militias from the mountain town of Zintan. The fighters are mainly former rebels who toppled Gadhafi with the aid of NATO airstrikes.

Libya Islamists say they have taken Tripoli airport





Tripoli (AFP) - Islamist fighters in the Fajr Libya (Libyan Dawn) coalition said on Saturday they have captured Tripoli airport after 10 days of clashes with nationalist militiamen.





A statement shown on screen on An-Nabaa television, regarded as close to the Islamists, said: "Fajr Libya announces that it totally controls Tripoli international airport."





The strategic site 30 kilometres (20 miles) south of the Libyan capital, has been shut since July 13 amid skirmishes between the Islamists and nationalist fighters from Zintan west of Tripoli, who had held the airport since the 2011 fall of long-time dictator Moamer Kadhafi.

Libyan militia accuses Egypt, UAE of airstrikes





CAIRO — Two airstrikes targeting Islamist militia positions in Libya’s capital killed 15 fighters and wounded 30 on Saturday. A senior militia leader accused Egypt and the United Arab Emirates of being behind the attacks on their posts.





The mysterious airstrikes Saturday were the second set in a week to target Islamist militia posts in the capital, Tripoli. They have fueled speculation that foreign powers are covertly intervening in Libya’s militia violence, because Libya’s air force does not possess the guided ordnance apparently used in the strikes and the country’s army is reeling from weeks of fighting driven by polarized politics.





The violence in Libya is rooted in the empowerment of militias since the 2011 ouster of longtime leader Moammar Gaddafi as transitional governments depended on them to maintain order in the absence of a strong police force or a unified military. ...





Gharyani said militia fighters from other areas were joining the Misurata forces, adding, “Our response will be severe.”





Similar airstrikes carried out Monday also targeted camps and areas occupied by Islamist militias from Misurata and allied groups.

Officials: Egypt warplanes bombing Libyan militias



CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian warplanes are bombing positions held by Islamist militias in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi as part of a large-scale operation to rid the city of militants who have held sway there for months, two Egyptian government officials said on Wednesday.



The officials, who have firsthand knowledge of the operation, said the use of the aircraft was part of an Egyptian-led operation against the militiamen that would at a later stage involve Libyan ground troops recently trained by Egyptian forces.



The operation, they said, had been requested by the internationally recognized Libyan administration based in the eastern city of Tobruk. That elected administration was thrown out of the capital, Tripoli, by rival militias allied with Islamic political factions.



The officials said the operation also involves the use of an Egyptian navy vessel as a command center off the Mediterranean shore of Tobruk. Renegade Libyan general, Khalifa Hiftar, is not leading the operation, with Egypt dealing directly with a newly appointed Libyan chief of staff, who has visited Egypt several times in recent weeks.



The operation was expected to last three to six months, said the officials, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

5 Foreigners, 3 Guards Killed in Libyan Hotel Attack





TRIPOLI, Libya — Gunmen stormed a luxury hotel in Libya's capital Tuesday, killing at least five foreigners and three guards, authorities said.



The attack, which included a car bombing, struck the Corinthia Hotel, which sits along the Mediterranean Sea. ...



The staffer said the gunmen fired in his direction when he opened his door to look out. He said he joined the rest of the staff and foreign guests fleeing out the hotel's back doors into the parking lot.



When they got there, he said a car bomb exploded in the parking lot, only a hundred meters (yards) away. He said this came after a protection force entered the lobby and opened fire on the attackers. He said two guards were immediately killed. The staffer spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared being targeted later by militants. He said the car bomb left at least five cars in the parking lot burned and damaged some windows in the hotel's facade.



He said the hotel had Italian, British and Turkish guests, but the hotel was largely empty at the time of the attack. He said the militia-backed Prime Minister Omar al-Hassi usually resides at the hotel, but was not there Tuesday. Al-Hassi's security guards also weren't there, he said. The hotel previously came under attack in 2013 when a former prime minister was abducted there.

A group calling itself Islamic State in Tripoli Province claimed the attack, labeling it the battle of Abu Anas Al Liby, according to SITE Intelligence Group. Al Liby, an alleged al-Qaeda militant accused of involvement in the bombing in 1998 of U.S. embassies in Africa, was captured by U.S. special forces in Libya nearly two years ago and died this month in an American hospital.

Lockerbie Bombing: Two Libyans Identified as Suspects by Scottish Officials

LONDON — Two Libyans have been identified as suspects in the 1988 Lockerbie airline bombing that killed 270 people including 189 Americans, Scottish prosecutors said Thursday.

U.S. and Scottish investigators are now seeking the assistance of Libyan authorities to interview the suspects in connection with bombing the Boeing 747 over Scotland, Scotland's Crown Office said.

"The two individuals are suspected of involvement ... in the bombing of flight Pan Am 103 in December 1988 and the murder of 270 people," a Crown Office spokesman said in a statement.

The pair, who have not been publicly named, are suspected of involvement in plot alongside Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, who was the only person who has ever been convicted in connection with the tragedy.

Interesting. I just finished watching a three part documentary on Frontline called My Brother's Bomber. The film maker's brother was a passenger on that flight. He dug up more stuff than the American and Scottish officials apparently did. The film ended with the bomb maker back in Libya, supposedly sentenced to jail. This guy is likely one of the two unnamed suspects. Good luck with extradition.
I love the poorly educated!!!

At least 47 feared dead in Libyan truck bomb blast

At least 47 people were killed in Libya on Thursday when a suicide bomber drove an explosive-laden truck into a graduation ceremony at a police college in the Libyan city of Zliten.

The blast, which was reportedly heard up to 40 miles down the coast, is likely to have been the work of Islamic State militants who were blamed for dozens of terrorist attacks in Libya last year.

Survivors spoke of scenes of carnage, with many of the bodies rendered unidentifiable and around 200 people wounded.

Such was the scale of the casualties that a temporary state of emergency was declared, with appeals for locals to donate blood at local hospitals.

"It was horrific, the explosion was so loud it was heard from miles away," said Miftah Hamadi, the mayor of Zliten. "All the victims were young, and all about to start their lives."

Libya's Peace Efforts in Tatters After Deadliest Bomb Kills 50

Violence in Libya deepened as a bombing at a police training center in a coastal city left at least 50 recruits dead days after Islamic State launched an assault on the nation’s biggest oil port.

The attack in Zliten was “massive,” according to Said Muftah al-Himady, head of the local council, adding that given the enormity of the explosion a van or truck was probably used to carry the explosives. Al-Jazeera said it was likely carried out by Islamic State, whose presence in Libya has been steadily growing since the country fractured between two rival administrations in the summer of 2014.

If the group was behind the strike, then “the big question now is whether it will make the clock tick faster for any western intervention,” said Mattia Toaldo, a Libya analyst at the European Council on Foreign Relations in London. Any response is likely to be restricted to a “symbolic intervention such as drone strikes or special operations on the ground,” he said.

The United Nations has been trying to forge a unity government to stem the spiraling unrest in Libya, that began with the ouster and death of Muammar Qaddafi in an uprising in 2011. The chaos has helped fuel Europe’s refugee crisis and allowed Islamic State to carve out a presence just as it has been stripped of territory in Iraq and Syria by local forces and U.S.-led airstrikes.

Libya Officials: French Special Forces on Ground Fighting IS

BENGHAZI, Libya — French special forces have been helping Libyan troops fight Islamic State militants in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi for two months, two Libyan military officials said Wednesday.

The French combat squad, consisting of 15 special forces, carried out four military operations against IS and other militant groups in Benghazi, the officials told The Associated Press. They said that French forces work with Libyan troops to pinpoint IS militant locations, plan operations and carry them out. They had also been training Libyan forces, they added.

According to the officials, the French forces were setting up an operations room in Banina air base in Benghazi alongside British and U.S. teams. They said that in addition to the special forces, a French intelligence unit is working with Britain and the U.S. units to collect information on the location of IS militants and their numbers. ...

The Libyan officials said the presence of Western forces was not welcomed by ultraconservative Salafist factions, who are allied with Libya's eastern army and perceive the foreign intervention as an "occupation."

Libya’s Unity Government Defies Air Blockade to Reach Tripoli

CAIRO — The Libyans who lead a United Nations-backed unity government traveled by sea early Wednesday to Libya’s capital, Tripoli, as part of a bold if risky effort to break the country’s two-year political stalemate.

Prime Minister Fayez Serraj and six other members of the presidency council, which is supposed to pave the way for a new government, arrived from Tunisia by boat at a naval base in central Tripoli. The landing defied an air blockade led by rival groups that had restricted the city’s airspace over the weekend. The blockade also drew strong criticism from the United States.

Eager to establish his authority, Mr. Serraj told a hastily convened news conference that he would broker a cease-fire among Libya’s myriad factions and confront the Islamic State, which has expanded aggressively along a coastal stretch of the country in the past year.

But hours later, an eruption of heavy gunfire in central Tripoli signaled that some groups opposed his arrival, and raised the prospect of a fresh wave of violence in the capital.

Khalifa al-Ghwail, the prime minister of Tripoli’s unrecognized government, called on his supporters to stand against the “infiltrators.”

Gaddafi’s cousin is plotting a comeback of sorts from a Cairo apartment

Every week, a group of men who once supported him gather here to discuss Libya’s future and their own fates. Presiding over the meetings in Cairo is Gaddafi’s cousin, whose apartment this is.

“He inhabits the hearts of millions,” Ahmed Gaddaf al-Dam said, glancing at one of the pictures.

Gaddafi’s overthrow and death six years ago reversed the fortunes of his clan and allies, who thrived under his patronage for more than four decades. Tens of thousands of his loyalists fled into exile when he was killed, many to neighboring Egypt. They have remained ever since, yearning for a role in shaping a new Libya.

With Gaddafi’s sons wanted, in exile, in jail or dead, Gaddaf al-Dam has emerged as the main spokesman for the family and tribe. He represents the hopes of Libyans who once had privileged lives, and the anxieties of many others who fear the return of those who backed Gaddafi’s authoritarian rule.

As insecurity and violence grip Libya, Gaddaf al-Dam now senses an opening. He and his supporters are cultivating ties with influential tribes and former rivals disillusioned by the political inertia, seeking to undermine Libya’s weak Western-backed government.

Islamic State Hits Libya's Election Headquarters, Killing 14

Suicide bombers linked to Islamic State killed at least 14 people in an attack on the headquarters of Libya’s elections commission, striking a target central to planned votes this year that could help edge the country back toward stability.

Gunfire erupted as the attackers targeted security forces guarding the building, said Khaled el Mannai, deputy head of public relations at the commission. While one kept watch on the entrance, another “roamed through offices showering people with bullets. When police reinforcements reached the area, the attackers blew themselves up inside,” he said.

Interior Minister Abdel Salam Ashour said at least 14 were killed, and the Health Ministry said another seven were wounded. The Site Intelligence Group said Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attack in the capital Tripoli reflects the challenges security forces face in rooting out militants who seized footholds in Libya amid the chaos that followed the 2011 ouster of Moammar Qaddafi. Islamic State had controlled the central city of Sirte, hoping to use it as a launchpad for attacks in Libya and neighboring countries. But it was driven out by forces loyal to the United Nations-backed prime minister, with the help of U.S. airstrikes.

It has since been making a comeback, aided by the feuding of two rival administrations and dozens of regional militias.

Libya chaos intensifies with drone massacre and rebel advances
Fears UN-backed government may be overrun as key territory lost to Libyan National Army


https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/ ... 1578408440
The nine-month assault on the UN-backed Libyan government has moved closer to a bloody climax, with the Tripoli administration reeling from the loss of key coastal territory to rebel forces, and a lack of international condemnation of a drone strike that massacred 30 of its military cadets.

Russia and the United Arab Emirates were continuing to pour arms into the country in support of the Libyan National Army rebel forces, led by Gen Khalifa Haftar.

The main European countries involved in Libya – France, Germany, Italy and the UK – are meeting in Brussels to discuss the crisis in an emergency session but have so far been incapable of an effective intervention to bring the warring sides together. Italy especially is determined that Libya should not slip off Europe’s agenda due to the attention devoted to the Iran crisis.

Fears that the UN-backed Government of National Accord, led by the prime minister, Fayez al-Sarraj, might be overrun militarily have led to a controversial Turkish promise to save the government from collapse by sending Turkish troops. The troops are being sent not to fight but to ensure a ceasefire, Ankara claims.

Libya conflict: Turkey sends troops to shore up UN-backed government
6 January 2020

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said troops have begun moving into Libya after parliament approved the move last week.

He said their mission was to ensure stability for the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli.

The Libyan government is fighting an insurgency by rebel forces under Gen Khalifa Haftar, based in eastern Libya.

Gen Haftar is backed by Egypt and the UAE, while the UN-backed government is supported by Turkey and its ally Qatar.

Rebel forces have been trying to capture Tripoli and were blamed for an air strike on a military academy on Saturday that killed at least 30 people. They denied any involvement.

Saudi Arabia and Egypt denounce Turkey’s decision to start sending forces to Libya
Libya's Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj made a formal request to Turkey for military support last week

Saudi Arabia and Egypt condemned Turkey’s decision to send troops to Libya in support of the Government of National Accord.

The kingdom’s foreign ministry said “the recent Turkish escalation in Libya” and the Turkish parliament’s approval of a troop deployment to Libya is a breach of UN Security Council decisions, state news agency SPA reported.

It said that “the kingdom affirms that this Turkish escalation poses a threat to the security and stability in Libya and a threat to Arab and regional security, as it is an interference in the internal affairs of an Arab country in flagrant violation of international principles and covenants”.

Egypt said any such deployment could “negatively affect the stability of the Mediterranean region” and called on the international community to respond urgently to the move.

Meanwhile, forces loyal to Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar said yesterday they had taken control of the strategic coastal city of Sirte in a rapid advance preceded by air strikes.

Holding Sirte would be an important gain for Field Marshal Haftar, who since April has been waging a military offensive on the capital, Tripoli, home to the GNA.

Turkey Starts Military Deployment in Libya as International Pressure Rises
By Dorian Jones
January 06, 2020 04:46 PM

ISTANBUL - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared Monday that Turkish forces would do their duty in Libya after being deployed to support the country's besieged Government of National Accord.

On Sunday, Erdogan confirmed the start of a military deployment to Libya.

"There will be an operation center [in Libya]. There will be a Turkish lieutenant general leading, and they will be managing the situation over there. [Turkish soldiers] are gradually moving there right now," said Erdogan. "The goal of the Turkish Armed Forces is not to fight, but to ensure a cease-fire in Libya."

The GNA is currently under siege by forces led by Libyan General Khalif Haftar, who controls eastern Libya. Last month, the Turkish Parliament sanctioned the deployment of military forces to Libya, following Erdogan's November signing of a military cooperation agreement with the GNA.

Ankara also agreed to a maritime agreement with Tripoli that extends Turkish control over a critical part of the eastern Mediterranean Sea.

Turkey is currently embroiled in an increasingly bitter competition with regional countries in the search for hydrocarbons across the Mediterranean Sea. The rivalry is now extending to control over the distribution of natural gas.

As Libya’s international proxy war deepens, U.S. and Europe jolted back into crisis talks

BERLIN — When top American and European officials gather in Berlin for a one-day summit on Sunday, they will try to persuade Libya's warring sides — and their main international backers — to reach a cease-fire, respect a U.N. arms embargo and pave the way to a political resolution.

The United States and Europe are hoping to regain their credibility and have a greater say in Libya’s future — as their rivals Russia and Turkey extend their influence into North Africa and the Mediterranean Sea.

In a sign of Washington’s growing concern, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will attend Sunday’s summit, making him the most senior U.S. official to attend a high-level meeting on ending the war in Libya.

Libya has become the center of one of the world’s most internationalized proxy wars, a contest over lucrative oil and gas resources, territory, ideological and geostrategic ambitions. By aiding the rival sides, more than a half-dozen countries are openly breaking the arms embargo, and some are committing possible war crimes.
