Russian military planes arrive from Syria to Libya’s east to support Haftar

The spokesman for the Libyan Government of National Accord’s (GNA) Sirte-Jufra Operations Room Abdelhadi Drah said they had depicted six flights on Russian military cargo planes coming from Syria’s Lattakia to eastern Libya’s Labreg and Benina airports.

Drah told Libya Alahrar that over the last two days, four Russian Ilyushin EL76 aircraft arrived in Labreg in Al-Baydaa and they could have brought onboard Syrian mercenaries and weapons to back up Khalifa Haftar.

“We’re waiting for the end of the political negotiations for surrendering Sirte and Jufra to the GNA and in the meantime are ready to repel any attacks. If the surrender didn’t happen, we’ll liberate the two areas from Haftar’s militias and exact control of GNA on the entire country.” Drah added.
