'Neighbourhoods turning into battlefields' in Libyan capital


The humanitarian situation has greatly deteriorated around the Libyan capital Tripoli, where "densely populated residential areas are gradually turning into battlefields," the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has said. "It is crucial that hospitals, medical facilities, health staff and vehicles transporting the wounded are allowed to carry out their activities safely," the ICRC said. WHO's emergency medical teams are helping #Libya's frontline hospitals cope with the influx of wounded, who now number 1332. On Wednesday, the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) evacuated 325 refugees from a detention centre on the southern outskirts of Tripoli. Both the LNA and GNA have repeatedly carried out air raids against one another and accuse each other's forces of targeting civilians.
