(Reuters) - Tel Aviv has deepened its ties with Libya's powerful man, Marshal Khalifah Hafter, the Middle East-based Middle East newspaper quoted an Israeli source familiar with the matter as saying on condition of anonymity.
The source claimed, according to the British site, "the Israeli army bombed planes military sites for the Libyan terrorist in favor of retired brigade Khalifa Hafter."
He noted that Israel bombed Sirte on 25 August 2015, in response to a request from Hafer during his visit to Amman, where he secretly met with a number of Israeli security officials, the newspaper said.
The report, published by the Middle East, "Haftar met agents of the Israeli intelligence mediated by the UAE."
The report added that Marshal Hafer "promised in return for the signing of oil deals and arms deals with Israel," pointing out that the meetings were mediated by the UAE.
The report pointed out that "Haftar received sniper rifles and night vision devices from Israel," and may be due to the middle of 2014 at the start of the military campaign launched by the forces of the brigade, "Khalifa Hafter"
