The Libyan Army Spokesman, Colonel Mohamed Gununu, confirmed that they had monitored 15 military cargo planes, which landed at Bani Walid Airport over the past 24 hours.

Gununu said in a statement that Russian Wagner mercenaries, who fled from Southern Tripoli and Tarhuna, could be seen boarding several Antonov An-14-type military aircraft, which had been monitored landing at the airport.

These aircraft were not merely used to evacuate defeated Wagner fighters, but also to deliver quantities of ammunition and equipment, according to Gununu.

He noted that the Russians movements between Bani Walid and Tarhuna were aided by the use of four Pantsir missile Systems.
