Haftar continues to breach Libya’s ceasefire by targeting civilians; UNSMIL condemns

The spokesman for the Libyan Health Ministry Fawzi Awnis has confirmed that one Moroccan national is killed and three people injured as Khalifa Haftar’s militias targeted a mosque in the vicinity of Mitiga Airport in Tripoli with a Grad rocket.

Awnis told Libya Alahrar TV that three civilians had been injured as another indiscriminate shell fell on a cafe in Al-Gassi, Al-Hadba in Tripoli.

The Moroccan national, Abdelhaq, was killed by Haftar militias’ shelling. He had been living in Sherfet Al-Mallah for over 20 years.

According to Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation, the shell fell while the mosque-goers were leaving Al-Gambri mosque near Mitiga Airport.

It added that two workers at Al-Safwa Hospital in Al-Hadba were injured by random shelling by Haftar’s militias, saying they were sent to Abu Salim Hospital for medical treatment.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) condemned the random shelling on the civilian areas in Souq Al-Jumua and Abu Salim, causing civilian injuries.

UNSMIL also said in a statement it deeply regrets the continued blatant violations of the arms embargo in Libya, even after the commitments made in this regard by concerned countries during the International Conference on Libya in Berlin, held on 19 January 2020.
