The British newspaper “The Guardian” confirmed that the UAE continues to send weapons to Libya, despite the United Nations’ decision to ban sending weapons, using the Egyptian airspace and territory.
The newspaper pointed out, on Wednesday, that satellite images revealed that a plane flew periodically, from the “Quswayra” desert airport in the UAE to two military bases, in the “Sidi Al-Barani” and “Janaklis” near Alexandria.
The newspaper pointed out that the aircraft are piloted by Emirati military pilots from one military base to another, which dispels any doubt about the civilian mission of these aircraft.
The newspaper says that the “C-17” plane “became an important part of the air bridge between the Emirates and Egypt, after the pursuit of the commercial aircraft manufactured in Russia of the type” Yushin-2-76 “, which were later replaced by the” Izi wignus “aircraft, according to the newspaper.
The newspaper stated that Russia also violated the ban, after satellites recorded images of Russian MiG planes at the Al-Jufra base recently, and published by the US Central Command for Africa, using these fighters to support private military companies sponsored by the Russian government.
It is worth noting the the New York Times, published last month, mentioned a report attributed to the United Nations Committee of Experts revealing the UAE’s role in violating the arms embargo to Libya and sending 35 aircraft loaded with weapons ten days after the Berlin conference and 100 aircraft in the first half of the year.
