Tripoli, 13 August 2014:
At least five civilians were wounded with unconfirmed reports of a number of . . .[restrict]deaths last night following heavy shelling of several districts in western Tripoli.
Five wounded were taken to a private Tripoli clinic with reports that other injured civilians were transferred to the Zawia and Abu Sleem hospitals.
The worst of the shelling took place in Ghut Shaal, where last night the sky was illuminated for miles around by blazes started by the explosions. Most residents in the district fled their houses for fear of the fires and the fighting. The majority of the shells were reported by locals as being fired from the positions of Misratan-led forces.
Ghut Shaal largely supports the Zintanis in the current conflict.
Missiles also fell on Janzur, Swani Road and Airport Road. The bombardment continued into the early hors of the morning.
Military sources on the ground told the Libya Herald that Western Libya Shield forces had again tried to enter the area around the Warshefana town of Zahra. According to Warshefana sources, three members of Western Libya Shield were killed and 12 others captured.
The claim has not been confirmed.
