Military operation of Benghazi brigades in Libya’s oil region draws mixed reactions
3/3/17

Benghazi Defense Brigades (BDB) launched early on Friday a surprise attack on Dignity Operation forces in the oil crescent region in central Libya and took control of Sidra port and Ras Lanuf Airport, in addition to Ben Jawad and Nofaliya towns.

The attack is part of a military operation called “Return to Benghazi” aimed at facilitating the return of Benghazi IDPs to their city.

The operation was met with mixed reactions. In Tripoli and Misrata, demonstrations were held Friday evening to support the operation.

This incident is further proof of Heftar's incompetnece. How can this 75 year old failure of a man even conceive ruling the entirety of Libya when his shaky control over the pockets in the east is crumbling before our very eyes?

I hope that this sends a strong signal to his foreign backers to reconsider their position, and contemplate compromise.

Oil prices increase as conflicts in Libya, Iraq intensify
3/5/17

Seeking Alpha – A new set of geopolitical conflicts buoyed oil prices higher today after yesterday’s sell-off pushed WTI below its 50-day moving average.
Conflicts in Iraq and Libya were the main reason for the rise in oil (NYSEARCA:USO) prices today, while consensus continue to overwhelmingly focus their attention on US shale production and rig counts.

Oil markets are prone to geopolitical risk factors that are hard to forecast. Namely, Iraq is having issues again with Kurdish factions.

Since the OPEC production cut deal started, secondary sources peg Iraq as the least compliant member out of OPEC. Our estimate and secondary sources put Iraq’s production cut at only 80k to 100k b/d, which is far less than what it promised to cut.

Forces of east Libya's Haftar concede oil port loss
3/4/17

The forces of eastern Libya's renegade general Khalifa Haftar conceded the loss on Saturday of a key oil export terminal they seized last year as fighting for the country's resource wealth intensifies.

The capture of Ras Lanuf and the other three eastern oil ports in September enabled Haftar to keep up his challenge to the authority of the UN-backed government in Tripoli and demand a major role in a replacement administration.

Russia senses an opportunity in Libya
3/6/17

Libya’s civil war has reached its climax in the battle for the oil terminals, and it is a battle Khalifa Haftar, commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), is winning. This reality has profound implications for the future of the country, partly because of a dramatic new development — the entry of Russia into the diplomatic mix.

The battle began last week when militias based in central Libya drove 100 miles across the desert to attack Libya’s hub oil ports, Sidra and nearby Ras Lanuf. Those terminals link to the massive Oil Crescent, home to the bulk of Libya’s oil. Quite simply, who controls this Crescent controls Libya.

“War drums are heard in Libya once again after a period of efforts aiming at peaceful solution to the crisis,” the French radio added, indicating that this is colser to reality in Libya now since the last efforts to hold a meeting between the Head of the UN-proposed government’s Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sirraj, and the commander of the eastern Dignity Operation forces, Khalifa Haftar in Egypt had been turned down.

“France and the western Powers thought that Haftar’s grip is strongly weighing in into the Libyan crisis, however; we were surprised to see his forces fail to hold their position and lose them to the BDB forces.” The radio reported.

Saraya Defend Benghazi (BDB)


The Saraya Defend Benghazi is an Islamist Militia group formed in June 2016 to oppose Libyan National Army and Haftar forces in Benghazi. The group has a similar ideology with that of al Qaeda, with the majority of its fighters also aligned to the Shura Council of Benghazi Revolutionaries. The founding statement of the group, however, states that it is not aligned to any specific group in Libya.

Libya’s eastern forces on the march to retake oil ports
3/10/17

Eastern Libyan forces have launched a counter attack to try to regain key oil ports captured last week by Benghazi militias, with reports of fighting in the desert as armoured brigades move forward.

Jets from the Libya National Army (LNA) struck the ports of Ras Lanuf and Sidra on Friday afternoon, according to eyewitnesses in Ras Lanuf town. The offensive by the LNA, commanded by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, was launched on Thursday night after a meeting of tribal elders in the eastern town of Benghazi endorsed it and pledged troops from the eastern region’s militias.

"The mood was angry, it was urgent, they signalled support [for the offensive]," said one attendee at the meeting.

US accuses Moscow of aiding warlord in battle for Libya oil ports
3/11/17

The fighting between Haftar’s forces and militias from western Libya is focused on Sidra, Libya’s biggest oil port, and nearby Ras Lanuf, its key refinery. Together they form the gateway to the vast Oil Crescent, a series of oilfields stretching hundreds of miles through the Sahara containing Africa’s largest reserves. Haftar’s forces have launched airstrikes against militias around the oil ports themselves, with social media showing pictures of corpses and burning vehicles. No casualty figures have yet been released.

Capturing the glittering prize of the Oil Crescent has become the focus of a bitter civil war now in its third year and US officials fear that Russia has now entered the conflict, with Haftar the likely beneficiary.

Not for the faint of heart.

Anyway, they tried to tell people in government and only Dennis Kucinich would listen. Our government harassed the Moriaritys and told them to shut up. They didnt and they lost everything but they're committed to telling the truth of what happened and their story is 100% believable and documented.

Libya government forces overrun Tripoli militia HQ
3/15/17

Tripoli (AFP) - Forces loyal to Libya's UN-backed unity government seized the headquarters of a rival militia on Wednesday in a third day of intense fighting for control of Tripoli.

The capital has seen exchanges of rocket and artillery fire between unity government forces and a militia loyal to former prime minister Khalifa Ghweil.
***
Heavy fighting has also rocked the east of Libya where forces loyal to military strongman Khalifa Haftar announced their recapture of two key oil ports on Tuesday.

Haftar's forces mounted a day-long assault by land, sea and air to retake the ports of Ras Lanuf and Al-Sidra which had been seized by a rival, Islamist-led force earlier this month.

Haftar and his ally, Libya's elected parliament in the eastern city of Tobruk, are hostile to the GNA, the result of a 2015 UN-backed deal.

An interview in Russian state media Tuesday indicates that one of Libya’s rival governments is looking increasingly to Moscow as a patron, a move that’s concerning U.S. military commanders in the region.

Aguila Saleh, speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR), told RIA Novosti, a Kremlin-controlled news agency, that he’s asked Russia to help train Libyan National Army fighters led by General Khalifa Haftar and has invited Russian lawmakers to visit eastern Libya.

“Most of our officers were trained in Russia and many speak Russian, and they know how to use Russian equipment,” Saleh is reported as saying. He promised Libya will pay $4 billion in Gadhafi-era military debt owed to Russia and added the Kremlin has promised to help “in the fight against terrorism.

Kremlin Rejects Reports of Russian Military Deployment Near Libyan Border

Kremlin officials and Russian lawmakers are denying published reports that Moscow has deployed a team of special forces and drones to a military base in Egypt near the Libyan border.

The denials came Tuesday, following multiple reports that Russian military activity had been spotted near the Mediterranean coastal town of Sidi Baranni, 100 kilometers from the Egyptian-Libyan frontier.

Those reports, quoting anonymous U.S. officials, say increased Russian involvement may be part of a push by Moscow to support renegade Libyan military commander Khalifa Haftar.

Can Russia resolve the conflict in Libya?
3/16/17

As the Libyan National Army loyal to General Haftar regained control of the two oil ports of Ras Lanuf and Es Sider early this week, news reports suggesting Russia has deployed private military contractors in security operations near Benghazi, an area under Haftar's control, have been denied by Russian official sources.

Russia's support for Haftar, who has refused to acknowledge the UN-backed Tripoli Government led by Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj, has frustrated Western attempts to implement a political solution that would include all Libyan factions, including Islamists, in a power-sharing deal.

Relying on sponsors such as Russia, Egypt, the UAE and France, Haftar has succeeded in creating a stalemate that has gradually eroded Sarraj's chances of governing the country under the label of the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) signed in 2015.

"Russia's relationship with Haftar is the result of a very simple equation. Russia backs Egypt, Haftar's main supporter," said Pavel Felgenhauer, a Moscow-based military analyst. "General Haftar has declared war on terrorism and this coincides with Russia's main objective in the region: wiping out the terrorist threat posed by the Islamic State," Felgenhauer told Al Jazeera.

Gunmen stormed Tripoli’s Martyrs’ Square on Friday and dispersed by force a protest that was supposed to call for an end to militias in the capital and demand activation of police and army institutions.
The protesters marched peacefully demanding all illegitimate armed brigades to leave Tripoli following three days of fighting and tension in some neighborhoods.
Later, supporters of Khalifa Haftar sneaked into the protest and changed its course. They started glorifying him and his self-styled army and chanting racist slogans against the city Misrata. Shortly, the gunmen stormed the square and started firing automatic weapons into the air to disperse the protest.

Milad al-Zwai, spokesman for the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA), said on Saturday the siege at the "12 blocks" ended when rival fighters tried to escape at dawn.

He said 23 of them had been killed and six arrested while five LNA troops were killed and six wounded.

Libya, the time to avoid escalation is now
3/17/17

Western Libya is too divided now to even think of negotiations for a comprehensive deal with Haftar: in Tripoli militias nominally loyal to Serraj have defeated those loyal to the rival National Salvation Government of Khalifa Ghwell but could soon clash with armed groups from the city of Misrata, who also nominally back Serraj.

At this point none of the belligerent parties can militarily defeat the others, but each side thinks it can win and is unwilling to back down. It would not be unlikely to see a faction deciding to block all exports rather than compromising with its opponents. In this situation a political deal on the future institutional asset of the country that brings together all these actors may prove elusive for weeks if not months, while in the meantime fighting on the ground escalates and Libya slides into division and fiscal collapse. This does not mean a political process is not needed, but rather that other matters take precedence.

Libya is producing 621,000 barrels a day after Waha Oil Co., which feeds Es Sider, began pumping again at its Waha field on Saturday, he said.

“Both ports are ready to restart exports,” Alaokali said.

Rebuilding The Arch: Breaking Libya For The Best
3/28/17

A common theme among many postcolonial countries in the Middle East is the difficulty of placing various religious and ethnic groups under the same state’s flag. Libya is different, as its people are overwhelmingly Sunni Arab. Nevertheless, tribal politics have instilled serious divisions in the country. The friction coalesces around two of the three primary regions of Libya, Cyrenaica in the east and Tripolitania in the west (the third historic province of Libya, Fezzan, is to the south of Tripolitania and tends to align its views with its northern neighbor). While the Qaddafi years represented a period of oppressive centralized control for all factions of Libya, the events since the revolution have caused these long-repressed tensions to bubble to the surface.
In the face of this growing sectionalism, Libyans should urgently adopt a constitution that provides a basic formula for co-existence. The pre-Qaddafi 1963 constitution offers just such formula. Splitting Libya along the traditional Tripolitania/Cyrenaica border would be a viable last resort if the constitutional solution remains elusive.
