WHO uses US-sanctioned Syrian airliner to send “medical aid” to Benghazi

The World Health Organization (WHO) in Libya has published a photo on its Twitter account for the US-sanctioned Syrian airliner, Cham Wings, saying its planes were used by WHO to bring “medical aid” from Dubai to Benghazi.

WHO indicated that the Cham Wings plane was charted to transport the medical supplies to the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi as part of the organization’s assistance to Libyan cities against the Coronavirus pandemic.

Cham Wings has been accused by the Libyan Government of National Accord, as well as by many international organizations and was indicted in a report for the panel of experts of the sanctions committee on Libya of the Security Council, of opening an air bridge from Syria to Benghazi, transporting mercenaries and weapons for Khalifa Haftar’s forces.

Cham Wings – owned by the Syrian regime – was also accused by the GNA’s Interior Ministry of opening a direct air bridge between Damascus and Benghazi, bringing shipments of Captagon (Fenethylline) drugs to  the eastern Libyan city.
