On July 26th, a video was published on Twitter purportedly showing mercenaries from the mythical Wagner PMC, flying out with a helicopter from Benghazi, Libya.

Following a geolocation check, the supposed mercenaries were, in fact, flying over Benghazi, Libya.

The video was recorded near Benina Airport, Benghazi. The individuals in the video took off from Benina Airport and flying towards southwest.

Furthermore, US Africa Command accused Russia of sending arms to the Libyan National Army (LNA) in Libya.

“Russian military cargo aircraft, including IL-76s, continue to supply Wagner fighters. Russian air defense equipment, including SA-22s, are present in Libya & operated by Russia, the Wagner Group or their proxies”

Declassified imagery from African Command also supposedly showed presence of Wagner group mercenaries in Sirte.

Meanwhile, hostilities are potentially about to begin around Sirte, as the Government of National Accord and its Turkish support are moving troops towards the city.

The Libyan National Army (LNA) spokesperson, Brigadier General Ahmed Al-Mesmari said that Misrata airport had been entirely turned into a Turkish military base that is to be used to “seize the oil Crescent areas.”

He also said that both Turkey and Qatar had no wish to rescue Libya from the crisis, but rather deepen it.

“We will continue to work to save Libya from Turkish occupation and colonialism,” he vowed on behalf of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s forces.
