The Deputy Head of United Nations Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has condemned an attack on the oil clinic in Tripoli, as fighting continues between the UN-backed government forces and the east-based forces of Khalifa Haftar.

Stephanie Williams expressed relief that there were no injuries in the attack, but noted that shelling of civilian targets may constitute a war crime, UNSMIL said on Monday.

Williams made her remarks at a meeting in Tripoli with Mustafa Sanallah, the Chairman of the state-owned National Oil Corporation (NOC).

Tripoli Oil Clinic belonging to the NOC was hit by shells on Friday, causing a fire in the facility without any human casualties, according to a statement by the NOC.
