Two Ukrainian IL-76D cargo planes have been destroyed in a recent airstrike by the Government of National Accord (GNA) on the Al-Jufra Airbase controlled by the Libyan National Army (LNA), according to reports in social media.

Russian miltiary blogger Diana Mihailova says that these aircraft weere involved in weapon deliveries to Lbya that violate the UN ban. She linked the supposed destruction of planes with the recent decision of Ukrainian aurhorities to cease the certificate of Europe Air, which has several IL-76D aircraft [UR-BXS, UR-CMC, UR-CRN, UR-CRP and UR-EAB].

Earlier pro-GNA media said that the GNA’s air force carried out multiple drone attacks on Al-Jufra Airbase destroying an ammunition depot and an IL-76 transport aircraft involved in deliveries of UAE-funded weapon supplies to the LNA.

Meanwhile, the LNA claimed that its air force had carried out an airstrike on the airbase in Misrata.

The LNA advance on Tripoli kicked off a new stage of the Libyan conflict. This stage is marked by an intense usage of airpower by both the GNA and the LNA and deeper and deeper involvemed of foreign actors in this neverending war.

    Operation “Timber Sycamore” continues… https://www.voltairenet.org/article204373.html

    Dick Chenie, and his private military companies, operating under Haliburton, KKR, ESS and so many others. Didn’t he do well, changing the US legislation for the US Forces, to enhance the private military industry, that he was heavily involved in. I wonder how much he has fleeced from the US tax payer, to keep them up and running, accountable to nobody?
