ICRC provides medical supplies to Tripoli and Tarhuna hospitals

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – During the past three days, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) team has provided medical supplies sufficient to treat up to 250 wounded  to hospitals in both Tripoli and Tarhuna, the ICRC announced yesterday via its Facebook page.

“Our teams have so far provided enough medical supplies to treat up to 7,000 wounded since the start of violence that erupted late August.” ICRC said in its statement.

“It is essential to protect the lives of civilians and their property, and to allow first-aid crews and ambulances safe access. Red Cross and Red Crescent teams must be given safe access in order to provide emergency assistance.” ICRC concluded.

Tripoli recently witnessed violent clashes between rival militias all funded by the proposed Government of National Accord, which resulted in the killing of more than 100 people, while hundreds of others were wounded, displaced, or missing.

On the other hand, the Libyan National Army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Massmari said that LNA has nothing to do with the ongoing clashes between the militias in Tripoli, and that the army continues to fully secure all the areas under its control such as the entire region of Cyrenaica east of Libya, and large parts of the south and the Libyan west.
