Two airstrikes in the Western town of Zuwara this morning have reportedly left at least four . . .[restrict]people dead and a number of others seriously injured.
The airstrikes are believed to have been carried out by aircraft operating under the Libyan National Army (LNA), and came a week after airstrikes on Tripoli’s Mitiga Airport. One hit a warehouse, said to be used for storing food, reportedly killing four. Sources say that at least 14 people, including workers from the warehouse, were injured in the attack.
The warehouse caught fire after the bomb hit and Tripoli-based news agency LANA said that firefighters were called to the scene to bring it under control.
It is not yet clear where the second bomb fell, but reports circulating this morning variously claimed that either a chemicals factory or the port had been hit.
One local resident told the Libya Herald that the airstrikes had left residents in the city in a state of panic.
Just days ago, the LNA warned that it would continue attacks on ports and airports under the control of Libya Dawn and told people to stay away from Tripoli’s Mitiga Airport, and Mirsata Airport and sea port. [/restrict]
