TRIPOLI: Air raids by the self-styled Libyan National Army against the capital on Saturday night killed four people and wounded 20 others, Libya’s internationally recognised unity government said, reports AFP.

But Amin al-Hachemi, a spokesman for the Government of National Accord’s healthy ministry, on Sunday warned that “the death toll could increase in the coming hours”.

A pro-GNA military source said the victims were civilians.

“Several sites were targeted by air strikes late Saturday night, causing victims among civilians,” the source told AFP.

“Most of the strikes hit areas in the district of Abou Slim... (but) none hit military targets.”
