Video shows UAE officers guiding militia in Libya
Video footage released Tuesday by the UN-recognised government showed Emirati military officers training forces loyal to eastern warlord Khalifa Haftar in Libya.
The Emirati officers appeared in the video training Haftar's forces on using Russian-made air defense systems.
A UN report has earlier revealed that two UAE companies were suspected of violating the UN arms embargo in Libya by supplying fuel for combat use to the renegade General Khalifa Haftar.
Libyan officials in Tripoli allege that the UAE had continued to fly munitions and military equipment to Haftar’s forces despite an agreement among foreign powers to end all interference.
