Israel's UN envoy has alleged Iran sent Libyan renegade general Khalifa Haftar advanced anti-tank munitions during his push to seize Tripoli from the internationally-recognized government.
"In November 2019, imagery surfaced of four Iranian “Dehlaviyeh” anti-tank guided missile systems being employed by militias associated with General Haftar’s forces in Libya," Danny Danon charged in a letter May 8 to the Security Council and Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
"The presence of this advanced Iranian-manufactured system on Libyan soil is another grave violation of Security Council resolution 2231 (2015), as set forth in article 6 (b) of annex B, which prevents ‘the supply, sale, or transfer of arms or related materiel from Iran,’" he added.
Danon was referring to UN-imposed arms embargo on Libya.
The Dehlaviyeh, or RAAD, is an anti-tank wire-guided missile system manufactured in Iran capable of penetrating armored vehicles.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
