Tripoli: Dead and wounded by shelling of Haftar forces, and the United Nations regrets the violations


The Libyan National Accord government announced that one person was killed and several wounded as a result of the bombing of the forces of retired Major General Khalifa Haftar last night on Tripoli.

The Ministry of Health in the Government of National Accord confirmed that a Moroccan worker was killed after leaving the evening prayer in a mosque near the Maitika International Airport, while three people - including two children - were seriously injured, due to the fall of a random shell fired by Haftar's forces.

The ministry added that four other civilians were injured as shells landed in the Al-Qassaba, Al-Hadba, and Arada areas.

On the other hand, the United Nations Support Mission in Libya expressed on Saturday "its deep regret and condemnation of the continuing blatant violations of the arms embargo in Libya, even after the commitments undertaken by the countries concerned in this regard" during the Berlin conference held on January 19 this year.

The UN mission added in a statement that the truce led to a marked decrease in hostilities in Tripoli, and gave the civilians an urgent need, but "this fragile truce is now threatened by the continued transfer of foreign fighters, weapons, ammunition, and advanced systems to the parties by some countries, among them Countries participated in the Berlin conference. "

The United Nations Mission confirmed that over the past ten days, many cargo planes and other flights were seen landing in Libyan airports in the western and eastern parts of the country, to provide the parties with advanced weapons, armored vehicles, advisers and fighters.
