Dignity Operation’s warplanes strike Derna, no casualties reported
The warplanes of the Khalifa Haftar-led Dignity Operation forces have carried out airstrikes on Thursday targeting the sports compound and the residential area known as Korean Buildings in Derna city.
Sources from Derna Shura Council reported that Dignity Operation air force targeted vital positions inside the Public Stadium in Derna’s western entrance as well as the Korean Buildings area, leaving enormous material damage.
The sources added that Derna residents also heard a very heavy blast after the airstrike was carried out, which plunged people into fright and horror.
“All the positions that were bombed Thursday by Dignity Operation warplanes are civilian institutions, which are void of any military presence.” A source from Derna, who asked to remain unnamed, added.
Derna has been suffering from a very low humanitarian condition as it has been besieged by dignity Operation forces for quite a long time along with frequent bombing by Dignity Operation’s air force.
