The Daily Express says that US, Italian, and British diplomats gave notice to Haftar that his weapon systems that brought down the US drone would be destroyed if they were to be used again.

The newspaper spoke about UN concerns driven by satellite images showing Hawk surface-to-air missiles used to bring down the US drone, though Haftar did apologize for downing the plane, saying that it was an "error".

According to the newspaper, countries of Britain, the US, and Italy have supplied the UAE and Jordan with a set of military equipment provided they were not sold to a third party, but it is believed that the Hawk Systems had reached Libya from one of these countries.
