Sources from Brak Shaati in southern Libya said Saturday that explosions had been heard at the town’s military base.
The sources told Libya Alahrar TV that a group of Russian Wagner Group mercenaries came from Jufra and entered Brak Shaati base, saying they had been working on securing the base.
The sources believed Wagner mercenaries had been making trials on different weapons inside Brak Shaati base as they continued to expand their presence from Jufra airbase toward the south, especially Sharara oilfield, Brak Shaati base and Temnehent airbase.
Meanwhile, Russia’s Wagner Group mercenaries suffered on September 23 a helicopter crash on Sokna road near Sabha. Four mercenaries were killed in the helicopter incident.
