East Libyan forces blamed for deadly air strikes in Tripoli, south

East Libyan forces blamed for deadly air strikes in Tripoli, southLibya’s internationally recognized government on Monday blamed rival, eastern-based forces for air strikes in the capital and the southern desert which it said had caused civilian casualties, most of them women and children. The Government of National Accord (GNA) did not say how many people had been killed and injured in the strikes, but military forces aligned with the GNA said 14 people had died. The strikes mark the latest escalation in an air campaign as the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA) presses its military offensive on the outskirts of Tripoli and seeks to retain control over desert areas in the south.
