The head of Derna Local Council, Awad Lairaj, stated on Wednesday that the residential neighborhoods in the city were bombarded by MiG 21 aircraft, pointing out that a state of panic and fear hit the people as a result of the continuous bombing of the eastern Sahel and neighbourhood 400.

He added that the areas that came under air bombing were all civilian targets, which is forcing families to flee and become displaced.

Lairaj expressed anger about the silence of state authorities about this shelling and the military escalation, which are engendering lives of civilians.
