Israel’s permanent representative to the United Nations (UN), Danny Danon said that Iran has sent advanced weapons to warlord Khalifa Haftar in Libya.

He added in a letter to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Wednesday, that Iran had violated the UNSC’s decision to prohibit the sending of any weaponry to Libya.

He added, “The videos and photographs showed the use of anti-armor missiles by Haftar’s militias, which were manufactured by Iran”.
