UN mission in Libya condemn targeting Tripoli’s oil clinic
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.
