An old woman killed by Haftar’s airstrikes on civilian neighborhood in Tajoura

The spokesman for the Emergency and Ambulance Apparatus Osama Ali told Libya Alahrar on Sunday that an old woman was killed and several of her family members were injured in airstrikes by Khalifa Haftar’s warplanes on Sherfat Al-Mallaha near Mitiga Airport in Tripoli.

Likewise, the Head of Public Relations Office at the Municipality of Tajoura Fathi Belashaher said a student at Hurriyah School was injured in airstrikes by Haftar’s warplanes on a farm near the school, which is located in Aby Al-Ashahar, Tajoura.

Haftar’s forces have been intensifying airstrikes on different residential areas in Tripoli. Two days ago, five civilians were killed and over 15 others injured in airstrikes on Ain Zara and Tajoura by Haftar’s forces.

 Meanwhile, the UNSMIL said in a statement that it had documented airstrikes by Haftar’s forces on December 26 in Al-Zawiya, saying they killed two civilians and injured eight others leaving public and personal property destroyed.

Prior to the above incidents, UNSMIL and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) announced that at least 284 civilian deaths and 363 injuries have been documented in 2019 as a result of the armed conflict following the start of Haftar’s offensive on Tripoli on April 04.
