At least two civilians have been killed and three others injured in an airstrike south of the capital Tripoli.

Moreover, the forces loyal to east Libyan strongman Khalifa Haftar are responsible for the attack.

Meanwhile, the office of the Government of National Accord (GNA) forces stated Haftar’s warplanes targeted residential area in Al-swani.

In addition, the forces also bombarded ammunition belonging to Haftar forces in Wadi Al-Rabi, south of Tripoli.

However, Amnesty International released a statement in which it accused both sides of “utter disregard” of the laws of war and possible war crimes committed.

“Warning parties have killed and maimed score of civilians by launching indiscriminate attacks and using a range of inaccurate explosive weapons in populated urban area”.

After all, two-seats of power emerged in Libya since the ousting of Late leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Usually, one in eastern Libya is mainly supported by Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

Whereas, another one in Tripoli enjoys United Nations and International recognition.
