UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — At least 121 people have been killed and 561 wounded since the start of the offensive on April 4 by the forces of the Libyan leader, the World Health Organization (WHO) said.

On the other hand, the organization’s office in Libya, in a tweet on Twitter, condemned “repeated attacks on medical teams” and ambulances in Tripoli.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that 13,500 people were married, of whom 900 were received at shelters.

Heavy fighting has been taking place since April 4 in the southern suburb of Tripoli between forces loyal to the internationally recognized Accord government and the forces of Marshal Khalifa Hafter, a man in the east of Libya.

The Libyan National Army, launched by Haftar, launched an offensive to take control of the northwestern capital.

In addition to land battles, the two sides launch air strikes daily and exchange accusations of targeting civilians.
