A source at Murzuk General Hospital confirmed Saturday that the fresh clashes in the south have claimed the lives of 23 people in addition to 91 others injured; 14 of them were taken for treatment to Tripoli, clarifying that the hospital did not receive any new cases since Friday.

The source underlined that the hospital did not receive any support from the Ministry of Health, noting that patients requiring surgical intervention have lost their lives because of the lack of means and doctors.
