Ankara, Turkey – The air dimension of the war in Libya was strategically carried out entirely by foreigners, but Turkey won the war.
In fact, there is a war in this war that Turkey and Russia are fighting and mediating.
Since the beginning of this year 2020, the coup leader Khalifa Haftar’s the so-called Libyan National Army, has started the war with the support of countries such as the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has been defeated in the face of new military technologies, especially Turkish drones.
The war in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Azerbaijan was a cross-border war in which it was conducted significantly in the air, and perhaps in the future, wars will be like this.
Important conflicts on land were fought by Libyan elements, but foreigners were confronted in the air, and strategically completely foreigners were fought, but the war was won by the Turks.
It is seen that the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) have proven to be an effective force in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Azerbaijan. From mid-January, it was clear that Khalifa Haftar’s forces would be defeated because Turkey was waging a “unique war of attrition.”
Turkish air defense and offensive elements were superior in capability, and Haftar’s forces avoided psychologically inflicting losses, which led to a change in the course of the war.
In Azerbaijan war, the Armenian forces agreed to surrender, fearing that their losses would increase and the price would be much heavier when they lost their air superiority thanks to the Turkish UCAVs and saw their tanks destroyed one by one.
The ongoing negotiations with the United Nations (UN) have been shaken by “allegations of bribery” and that the fourth round of talks are unlikely to be held, Turkey will want to preserve the gains of this process, in which it emerged victorious, and that there may be negotiations between Turkey and Russia as an alternative to the UN.
No solution that does not fully protect the interests of Russia and Turkey can be successful. Because both forces have proven what they can do militarily.
