Indiscriminate shelling on Qasr Bani Ghashir

Qasr Bani Ghashir, a town in Tripoli, was indiscriminately shelled Tuesday, leaving behind civilian casualties and many displaced families.

No party has claimed responsibility for the attack thus far, but the incident comes in the context of the ongoing war in the capital between the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), which uses armed groups and militias in the tensions, and the eastern Libyan National Army (LNA).

This also comes along the Islamic State (IS)’s return to exploit the lack of security amid the battle and re-establish its organisation in Libya.

The war between the eastern and western rivals has killed thus far 454 people and wounded 2154, including civilians and ambulance workers, in addition to the destruction brought about on infrastructure, including schools, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
