The US “Bloomberg” agency revealed a secret report prepared by the United Nations, that mercenaries belonging to two companies based in Dubai, UAE, are fighting with Haftar militias in their aggression against the capital, Tripoli.
The report quoted diplomats in February that the mercenaries belonged to the company “Lancaster 6 DMCC” and the company “UPS Capitol Asset Limited FZE”, and they traveled to Libya in June last year.
Bloomberg added that the companies supply Haftar with helicopters, drones and cyber capabilities, through a complex network of imaginary companies.
The Bloomberg report confirmed the mercenary team led by a South African citizen, noting that the team soon withdrew suddenly from Libya on two boats to Malta, and United Nations investigators did not specify the reason for the sudden withdrawal of the team.
It is worth noting that the British Guardian newspaper said, in early March, that the UAE sent to Haftar more than 5 thousand tons of military supplies to support his militias despite the United Nations resolution to ban the supply of weapons.
