Death toll increases to 115 in Tripoli clashes

Clashes in Khalit Al-Furjan in southern Tripoli (Phot: Social Media)

At least 115 people have been killed and 383 injured in month-long clashes between rival factions in Tripoli, Libya’s health ministry said Sunday.

At the Frontline in Tripoli’s southern residential areas of Wadi Rabea and Fatma Zahra, shelled houses, torched vehicles, destroyed shops and deserted streets attest to the intensity of the clashes in the capital.

Meanwhile residents in southern Tripoli continue to bear the brunt of the infighting, with many forced to flee their homes.
