The spokesman for the Libyan Anti-terrorism Force Colonel Abdelbasit Teeka has condemned the targeting of field hospitals on frontlines by ” rogue UAE drones that are backing war criminal Khalifa Haftar and his militias.”
The media office of the Volcano of Rage Operation reported Teeka as saying that the area – where field hospitals are – credentials and position details were given to the UNSMIL to avoid them any airstrikes and shelling, yet the airstrikes and shelling were doubled this week.
Teeka held the UNSMIL accountable for the attacks on the field hospitals on frontlines and accused it of being an accomplice to Khalifa Haftar by providing him with the positions of field hospitals of the frontlines.
“This is a war crime and we will file a lawsuit against war criminal Haftar in all international courts.” He indicated.
The field medical center in Tripoli said one medic – Salim Efneis who works at the ambulance and emergency department and has been exerting efforts to help injuries from both sides of the war – was killed after an airstrike hot a field hospital in Salah Al-Deen I’m southern Tripoli at Thursday dawn.
