Pentagon Says Russia Flew 14 MiG 29s And Su-24s To Libya

Warzone/The Drive: Russia Now Has At Least 14 Combat Jets In Libya As Satellite Images Reveal New Details

It’s now clear that the Kremlin has launched a major airpower intervention into the country.

The U.S. military’s top command for operations in Africa says that Russia has sent at least 14 combat jets to Libya and that Russian military pilots are flying them. It has also released additional satellite imagery shot last week showing two MiG-29 Fulcrums at Al Jufrah Air Base in the center of that country. This comes a day after it first revealed evidence that the Kremlin had sent the aircraft to bolster forces fighting on behalf of strongman Khalifa Haftar against Libya’s U.N.-recognized government.

U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) Tweeted out the new imagery and information on May 27, 2020. The satellite images are dated May 20, a day before the first reports began to emerge that Russian MiG-29s, as well as Su-24 Fencers, had touched down in Libya.


WNU Editor: Here is an easy prediction. The war in Libya is about to escalate significantly.
