Death toll of Tripoli fighting rises to 443: WHO

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – A total of 443 people have been killed and 2,110 others injured in the fighting between the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the militia coalition supported by the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) in and around the capital Tripoli, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Wednesday.

“443 people are dead and 2,110 others wounded due to violence in Tripoli, Libya,” WHO tweeted.

“As the crisis continues and the number of displaced people approaches 60,000, WHO is working to coordinate ongoing health services for them,” WHO added.

LNA, lead by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, launced a military operation in April to cleanse Tripoli of terrorist and criminal militias.
