The World Health Organization (WHO) in Libya condemned the bombing of two field hospitals, one in Al-Sawani and the other in Ain Zara, south of Tripoli, on Thursday evening.

The World Health Organization, in a tweet through its official account on Twitter, said that the shelling of the field hospital in Al-Sawani injured a doctor and paramedics, while the organization did not mention the damage caused by the bombing of the Ain Zara hospital.

"The armed conflict threatens health care in Tripoli," reiterating the call that medical personnel should not be targeted.

Violent confrontations in the southern suburbs of Tripoli began between forces of the government of national accord and the LNA  on April 4th, leaving 607 dead and 3261 wounded, including 117 civilians, according to the World Health Organization.
