Libya: Russian military cargo planes unloading assistance to Haftar
The Libyan army under the GNA command on Sunday said Russian-made cargo planes made new military shipments to the forces loyal to warlord Khalifa Haftar.
Abdulhadi Drah, the spokesman for the army’s Sirte-Jufra Joint Operations Room, said that carrying military ammunition, Ilyushin-type planes conducted five flights to Sirte and Jufra provinces on Saturday.
Carrying Bashar al-Assad regime’s soldiers, two more flights were made from Syria to Benghazi, the second biggest Libyan city, which is the center of the Haftar’s forces, Dirah said.
