The United Kingdom has strongly condemned the airstrike on a field hospital in the Airport Road of Tripoli on Saturday.

“We strongly condemn reported targeting of civilians in the field hospital South of Tripoli. Civilians including aid and health workers and civilian infrastructure as hospitals and schools are not a target.” The British Embassy in Libya tweeted Sunday.

The embassy called for an immediate de-escalation in Tripoli to prevent further losses of lives.

A warplane belonging to warlord Khalifa Haftar bombed a field hospital in the Airport Road killing five medics and leaving eight others injured.
