An armed man opened fire on a patient in Al-Jala Hospital in Benghazi on Tuesday.
The hospital said on its official Facebook page that a visitor to one of the patients fired shots at another patient near the admission office, causing panic among the medical staff, the patients and the visitors. The hospital did not give further information.
The hospital confirmed that such an incident has been repeated several times inside the hospital without any precautions or deterrents put in place.
A similar operation took place just one day before at Benghazi Medical Center after an altercation quickly turned into a shooting that caused a number of people to be wounded.
