UN condemns Haftar’s attacks on civilians in Tripoli
The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) on Thursday condemned the attacks on civilians in Libya, a day after indiscriminate shelling killed 4 children in southern Tripoli.
“Four young women and girls aged between 14-20 killed, and five others, including a 11-year-old child, were injured yesterday in a senseless indiscriminate shelling affecting a civilian neighborhood in Ain Zara, reportedly by LNA forces (Libyan National Army),” the UMSMIL said in a statement.
“Appalled by this bloody attack, which comes hours after the international calls for a humanitarian pause, UNSMIL reiterates its strong condemnation of such indiscriminate attacks affecting civilians and renews its call for an immediate cessation of hostilities,” the statement said.
