The Ministry of Health has reopened Hadhba Hospital in Tripoli after one day of closure due to rocket attacks. The ministry suspended work at the hospital on Thursday after it was hit by three rocket attacks in a week by Haftar's militias.

The attacks destroyed a drug store, an operating room, and other departments, according to the ministry.

The attack forced the ministry to evacuate the hospital, especially after the occurrence of injuries among the staff.

"Such cowardly act deserves a universal condemnation," the ministry stressed, noting that targeting health facilities amounts to a war crime, as defined by international covenants and laws.
