Egypt, UAE, Jordan, and Belarus provided military support for Haftar, SIPRI says

Stockholm International Peace Research Institute ( SIPRI) said Khalifa Haftar had received armored vehicles from Jordan and UAE as well as figter helicopters from Belarus and Egypt.

SIPRI said the fighter jets and drones that were supplied to Haftar by the UAE had been used in Libya’s conflict, including the aggression on Tripoli.

It indicated that the intervention of the UAE in Libya was part of its foreign policies that include military intervention in Yemen.

SIPRI said that despite the violation of the UN arms embargo in Libya, which has been in effect since 2011, no country has been sanctioned for such violations.
