Libyan pro-government warplanes launch strikes near Tripoli

0

TRIPOLI: Libyan pro-government forces said they had targeted a weapons depot belonging to an Islamist-backed militia, as peace talks continued in Morocco and a United Nations special envoy met both sides late on Monday. A militia spokesman said, however, that the raid had hit a refugee camp, killing eight civilians. Military spokesman Colonel Ahmed al-Mesmari said “the air strike targeted a weapons storage facility belonging to Libya Dawn” in Tarhuna, some 80 kilometers (50 miles) southeast of Tripoli. Libya Dawn is a militia alliance that includes Islamists and has installed a rival government and legislature in opposition to the country’s internationally recognized government.
