The spokesman for the Libyan Health Ministry Fawzi Awnis has confirmed that 14 people are injured due to the indiscriminate shelling of Khalifa Haftar’s terrorist militias on Al-Zawiya Hospital in Tripoli.
The shelling that came in the early hours of Thursday also targeted Tareeq Al-Soor, leaving civilians in panic and destroying a number of their properties.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Minister of Health, Mohammed Haythem, said the damage done to Al-Zawiya Hospital could lead to its shutdown, which is a massive healthcare problem amid the spread of Coronavirus.
