In a video statement read by an unnamed counter-terrorism force commander broadcast on Al-Jazeera, the force accused Haftar of “supporting ISIS”.

The Wefaq government filed a complaint against the UAE before the UN Security Council in September for "hostility and supporting attempts to overthrow the legitimate government."

At the end September the government of al-Wefaq accused the "Emirates Airline" of bombing "vital civilian targets" in the city of Sirte (450 km east of Tripoli); in support of the eastern forces led by Haftar.

The UAE is silent about the accusations.

Since April 4, Haftar's forces have been pursuing a faltering offensive to control the capital Tripoli, the seat of the Wefaq government.
