On 21st May 2017, a joint statement was issued by the USA, UK, Russia and China regarding the horrific Massacre at Al Shati Airbase on 18th May. Misrata Militias who were responsible for the attack assisted by Al Qaeda in one of the worst War Crimes in Libya of 2017 first denied the attack until footage was released. Since then they have announced the attack was to finish the UN backed Government of National Accord in Tripoli and more recently that it is in ‘alliance” with Tripoli.
Despite the protests of the US and UK though, it appears that Misrata is still fully supported by the USA and co-ordinated by them as further leaks reveal the employment of Mercenaries via Ukraine to staff the Misrata Airbase with staff and technicians.
2 days ofter the notorious Al Shatri Massacre Jufra, film and photographs emerge of a Foreign Mercenary Pilot with Misrata Militias in Libya in direct Contravention of UN Law. Employed by Qatar.

Observatory | Libya – revealed images and film were leaked of pilots and foreign professionals employed in the functions of a military character at Misrata air base. Just a day after President Trump announced he wishes Qatar to buy “Lots of shiny new Weapons” from the USA. Figures released this month reveal that in 2015 alone, Qatar funded Daesh in Libya to the tune of 1 and half billion $.
The leaked footage obtained from the Sunday Observatory shows ” Sky Fighter ” on the group site “Flickr” called ” Espacio UAE ” belonging to someone who identified himself as a member of the group who were present before deleting the account, showed active armed operations and maintenance of a “Mirage Fighter F-1” and a technician speaking a foreign language after maintenance operations.
A spokesman of Army General Command announced on may 2nd, the arrival of a group of mercenaries to Misrata, Libya via the airport at Tripoli, consisting of 9 technicians from Ecuador, rockets from Georgia and a pilot carrying Ukrainian citizenship.
According to one report, the mercenaries checked into Misrata via Mitiga Airport in violation of United Nations Resolutions on arms in Libya, saying that it’s not the first time this type of action has been carried out by the city of Misrata, “Militias aligned with the Government of National Accord”, and the use of mercenaries in the process of flying and fleet maintenance.
It has been revealed that since February 2015, Ada Angeles company based in Ukraine, specialising in providing spare parts for airplanes, helicopters, have been advertising for pilots and technicians with experience in aircraft “f-1 Mirage” to work with full-time salaries in Africa, a reported range of 15 thousand to 20 thousand $ per month, including Pilots.
And this is not the first time. Previously it is known of the existence of professional mercenaries in Libya, employed by Libya Dawn Militias from many countries including Columbia and S.Africa. In a report and interview with them after their departure from Libya they arrived via Istanbul airport after being engaged in Doha, Qatari capital, as the site posted pictures of them during aerial bombing targets in Zintan and the western region and other photos during maintenance operations within Misrata air base.

22nd May 2017 – Civilians in the Al Shatri Airbase region of Jufra demonstrate against Misrata presence in the South and outrage at the massacre.
This is falling on deaf ears though as a convoy of Misrata Militias travels south toady to support their butchering terrorists at Brak Al Shati Airbase just days after the massacre of at least 140 people and the theft of half a billion in food and medical aid for the entire region in what was supposed to be aid for Ramadan.
