Drah: Russian aircraft brought Syrian mercenaries to Sirte

A Russian cargo plane carrying Syrian fighters landed in Libya’s Sirte province, controlled by warlord Khalifa Haftar, the Libyan army under the Government of the National Accord (GNA) said on Saturday.

The aircraft arrived at Al-Gardabiya airbase in Sirte, according to the spokesamn for the Sirte-Jufra Operations Room Abdelhadi Drah.

On August 21, the Libyan Government of National Accord announced a ceasefire and ordered its military to stop operations against Haftar’s militias.

However, the Libyan army has since reported several breaches of the ceasefire by Haftar’s militias.
