Battle for Tripoli: Over 600 people killed in two months

WHO called more than once for a ceasefire in Tripoli.

A total of 607 people have been killed and 3,261 others injured in the fighting in and around Libya’s capital Tripoli, the World Health Organization (WHO) said.

“The toll of the Tripoli crisis is now 607 dead, including 40 civilians, and 3,261 wounded, including 117 civilians,” WHO tweeted.

Khalifa Haftar launched an offensive against Tripoli on April 04 in an attempt to seize power and control the Libyan capital Tripol.

Fierce clashes have been raging since then with over 90.000 people displaced and numerous properties – both public and private – destroyed.
