Turkish F-16s are the ones who conducted the raid and will continue to do that for several weeks. They all know that, but elected to point fingers to UAE and Egypt….and other countries instead. Turkey with the support of Qatar both have interest in keeping the situation in Libya as is and will air raid all sides to make sure nobody has the upper hand in the internal war going in Libya. Turkey has the air fueling capacity to refuel its F-16 back and forth to conduct the air raids. It has also been confirmed that the raids were conducted by F-16s coming from the Mediterranean sea and returned back in the same direction. Neither Spain, Italy or France has any F-16s of their own. The fact that Turkey is supplying the same parties it is now air raiding with arms through Sudan force those parties to point in other directions in order not to risk losing the arms supplies purchased by Turkey and Qatar that arrives via Sudan.

SO ENOUGH IS A ENOUGH… WE IN EGYPT Know it all, We Watch What Is Happening and Keep our mouth shut in order not to interfere in Libya’s internal affairs. But if some of those Militants groups supported by Turkey will point fingers to us… WE HAVE RECORD OF EVERYTHING and We Can Make It Go PUBLIC !!!

Let us hope that the elected Government gets a grip on the situation by establishing a National Army without any ex Gaddafi thugs and that all crimes are punished by the judiciary in a just manner. Libya needs to be a country again not a failed State like Somalia and South Sudan!
