The answer is yes.
In particular, look at the images - they were drawn by people who know the
difference between a Maqaf and a hyphen.
The first is normally either space or Maqaf. Most compounds which use Maqaf

The second is a hyphen.
Hyphen-Minus is often used for both because of historic computer
In English I would use space and hyphen.
