WHO sends aid to Libya with sanctioned Syrian airliner 

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) used a Syrian airline under US sanctions to transport humanitarian aid to Libya.

The WHO released a photo of a Cham Wings plane it had used to transport 16 tons of drugs and supplies from its warehouses in Dubai to Libya's second city, Benghazi.

The organization's representative in Libya, Elizabeth Hoff, was sent to Syria for seven years from 2012.

The Syrian private carrier was placed under US sanctions in 2016 for carrying weapons and foreign fighters to support President Bashar al-Assad's troops against the rebels.

Cham Wings is believed to belong to Mr. Assad's brother-in-law.
