Belarusian cargo airline flies from Libya to Venezuela and beyondRada Airlines is a Belarusian cargo airline that operates a fleet of Soviet-built Ilyushin Il-62 aircraft. The airline exclusively operates cargo flights, and I’d have to imagine that the carrier’s cargo services have only gotten even more unusual recent months, given the situation with Russia. I can’t even imagine what’s going on with this particular cargo flight, and what has been transported on various segments. Rada Airlines Il-62Bottom lineA Belarusian cargo Il-62 is currently operating what must be one of the most suspicious and intriguing cargo flights we’ve ever seen. The plane flew from Tripoli to Bridgetown to Caracas to Mazatlán to Caracas to Casablanca to Ahmedabad.

Fragile ceasefire strained as rival prime ministers jostle for power amid talks in Cairo about the future political process and conduct of elections. Libya’s fragile ceasefire almost fell apart on Tuesday as clashes erupted in the capital Tripoli in response to another attempt by the prime minister of the rival government to install himself and his cabinet. The move sparked a backlash from different militias in Tripoli as gunfire broke out and the Nawasi Brigade headquarters came under attack. The Tobruk-based parliament claims that Bashagha should now be the prime minister as the term of Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, the prime minister of the United Nations-recognised Government of National Unity, has ended. Deputy Intelligence Chief Mustafa Qaddur of the Nawasi Brigade, which helped Bashagha enter Tripoli, has been dismissed.

Damage caused by last Saturday’s militia clashes in Janzour (west Tripoli) will result in power cuts and a delay in the completion of the Tripoli West Fast Track power station this summer, the Chairman of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) Wiam Abdali said today. It will be recalled that the Tripoli West Fast Track power station was meant to play a huge part in preventing the annual reoccurrence of lengthy power cuts. Incumbent Caretaker Prime Minister, Abd Alhamid Aldabaiba, had staked his reputation on the ‘‘Fast Track’’ projects. He had asked the Audit Bureau and Central Bank of Libya to ‘‘fast track’’ them and set aside the usual lengthy and financing procedures to save the country from another year of lengthy power cuts.
