Air strikes targets armed groups in Tripoli

Sudden Libyan National Army (LNA) air strikes targeted alleged armed groups locations in the areas of Salah Al-Dien, Khallet Alforjan, Ain Zara and Zatarna Monday night in Tripoli.

This is; however, not the first attack by the LNA forces late at night. Other strikes were reported to be carried out during the past period at the same timing in Tripoli.

According to the Government of National Accord (GNA) Interior Minister Fathy Bashagha, more than 300 have been killed and about 2,000 others were wounded since the beginning of war in the capital.

The LNA launched an offensive against Tripoli, the seat of the GNA, on April 4 with the aim of “liberating the city from militants.”

At least 278 people have been killed and more than 1,300 wounded in the clashes, according to a toll released last week by the World Health Organization.
