Tripoli Clashes Claim 121

15 Apr 2019 The Killid Group

Libya – World Health Organization of the United Nations says ongoing clashes between rival militias for controlling Tripoli have killed at least 121 people and landing hundreds further in hospitals.

According to the organization reported Sunday, some 561 people have been wounded since the self-styled Libyan National Army launched a major military offensive on April 5.

The fighting pits the LNA, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter, against rival militias loosely affiliated with a weak UN-backed government based in Tripoli, AP reported.

The UN said earlier this week that more than 8,000 people have been displaced by the fighting.

The clashes threaten to ignite civil war on the scale of the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Libya is split between rival governments in the east and west, each backed by an array of militias, according to AP.
