#AceWorldNews – LIBYA (Tripoli) – September 07 – Libya accused Sudan of arming terrorists and expelled the country’s military attaché on Saturday, a government statement said.
The Libyan government added that a Sudanese military transport plane under the control of a militant group had entered its airspace, with the intention of supplying a “terrorist group” with ammunition. “This work from the Sudanese state violates [the sovereignty] of the State of Libya and interferes with its affairs,” the Libyan statement said, claiming that Sudan is actually “supporting a terrorist group.
According to Libya, the Sudanese plane was on its way to Tripoli-Matiga airport after making a refuelling stop in the Libyan desert oasis Kufra near the border with Sudan.
Sudan has confirmed that it sent a military plane, but denied it was meant to support non-state militant groups, stating that the plane was carrying equipment for a joint Libyan-Sudanese border force.
