An official in the Libyan National Accord Government announced that a Russian cargo plane with Syrian mercenaries on board had landed at Bisirt airport (north-central), to fight in the ranks of retired Major General Khalifa Haftar.
This came in a brief statement by the spokesperson for the Sirte Al-Jafra Editing Operations Room, Brigadier General Abdul Hadi Dara, which was published by local media, including the “February” channel, through its Twitter account.
The Libyan military official said: “A Russian cargo plane landed at Al-Qardabiya airport in Sirte, with a large group of Syrian mercenaries on board, not Russian,” without further details.
And last Wednesday, Drah announced the landing of two military cargo planes carrying military equipment at an air base in the city of Sirte, which is under the control of Haftar’s militia.
Drah said at the time: “The Sirte and Jufrah regions are witnessing military build-ups of Haftar’s militia and the Russian mercenaries, and they have not stopped for a while.”
Since last August 21, there has been a ceasefire in Libya, which Haftar’s militia violates from time to time.
The oil-rich country has been suffering an armed conflict for years, so with the support of Arab and Western countries, Haftar’s militia, the internationally recognized Libyan government, has been fighting over legitimacy and authority, which resulted in civilian deaths and injuries, along with tremendous material damage.
