On April 6th, and continuing into April 7th, clashes continue in Southern Tripoli.

Reportedly, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s forces, the Libyan National Army (LNA), shelled Al-Khadra hospital in Tripoli with more than 20 Grad Missiles, and most of the damage was sustained in the neonatal intensive care unit and the maternity unit.

Meanwhile, the LNA said that in response to the attack by the Government of National Accord’s forces on the Alwitiya airbase on March 25th, so far 339 soldiers had been killed.

The LNA, furthermore, continued heavily shelling the Mitiga international airport, which serves as a sort of Turkish headquarters, for its troops and the fighters it has deployed from Syria.

Reportedly, 4 Turkish officers were killed in the shelling and their bodies were airlifted out of the country.

At the same time, undersecretary of the GNA Ministry of Communications Hisham Pushkoyat said that Haftar’s forces are targeting Mitiga airport, causing severe damage to its civilian facilities.

The GNA further responded by destroying two ammunition depots of LNA in Wadi Rabea, south Tripoli, according to the spokesperson for the Libyan Army Mohammed Ganunu.

    LNA forces suffered a lot of losses the past few days.
    Mitiga was not hit, but they did hit a hospital which shows how desperate they are.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    There are no good guys in Libya, just puppets of various vested interests and NATO oil theft enterprise.

      I really miss Gaddafi. He was a good guy. He even provided free electricity to his people and spent poor people cars.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Qaddafi made his fair share of mistakes, but compared to what’s going on and the global parasitic scramble for Libyan oil, he kept the tribal country together and stable. That is why I am a firm supporter of Dr. Assad. without him Syria will fall to Zionist scum and Turkeys.

        • xTheWarrior22

          He may not have been perfect, but still the best guy in for Libya, exactly like Assad in Syria like you said. Assad may not be a democrat, but it doesn’t matter, as long as he cares for his people and protects them. Hussein also kept Iraq stable, but he was a very harsh and brutal leader, but still better than the lawlessness today.

      Soros/hitlary/odummer/eu-epp/hato are getting their sorry asses kicked outta libya,
      the other will prevail and there will be no more cheep/free oil to europe nor usa from there!

        Oil is growing increasingly worthless now anyway.

  • Ashok Varma

    US and NATO overthrew a stable Kaddafi government for oil, which is worthless now. Karma bites.
