An image of what is alleged to be western military forces has been captured in an undisclosed area outside of Benghazi. The nationality of the soldiers and their purpose in the region remain unknown at the time of publication.
The vehicle in the photo appears to be an Oshkosh M-ATV, a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP) introduced in 2009 and originally manufactured by the Oshkosh Corporation for the US Department of Defence, with the majority of deliveries going to the US Army.
Subsequent operators have included the armies of Bahrain, Croatia, Iraq, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, the United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, and Houthi forces in Yemen.
The M-ATV in question appears to be armed with a CROWS (Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station), and, coupled with the appearance of the solider alongside, it is considered unlikely that this vehicle belongs to a Libyan militia; the question would be which nation's special forces: the obvious answer is the US, who have commonly used the M-ATV throughout Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and elsewhere, or someone else possibly trying to disguise their country's involvement?
