Army spokesman Muhammed Kununu explained in a statement that a drone strike destroyed the Russian-made Pantsir type air defence system and Chinese-made Wing Loong II type armed drone which were supplied by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Haftar.

On Friday, Kununu said the Air Force had targeted a military vehicle carrying a number of militiamen linked to Haftar who had been on their way to support the “terrorist militias” in their aggression against Tripoli.
