UN agency condemns airstrike on migrant center in Libya 1

 

An airstrike that hit a migrant detention center near the Libyan capital of Tripoli has left at least 40 people dead and another 200 injured, a health official in the country's UN-recognized government told CNN.
"I expect the death toll to go up given that there are critically injured people being treated in hospital," Malek Merset, a spokesman for the Ministry of Health, said.
Satellite images taken of the detention center in Tajoura, a coastal town east of Tripoli, showed extensive damage to several buildings in the complex. Photos taken on the ground captured piles of rubble left where structures had been, while emergency crews worked to remove both the wounded and the dead.
Libya's Government of National Accord (GNA) condemned the "horrific crime," blaming renegade Gen. Khalifa Haftar, leader of the Libyan National Army (LNA), whose forces have been waging an assault on the capital for the last two months.

    People would stay in their own countries if they had equal opportunity and financial security. Of COURSE they want to flee depravity and corruption. 🌹

      thats right..trump has given him his 100 percent support..so the fucker goes and kills civilians…must make trump so proud….as a matter of fact ,trump is going to dress like him in his soviet style military parade tomorrow…i hope the uniform doesn’t clash with his bone spurs..
      In the Bloomberg piece, it says “President Trump indicated in a phone call with Libyan strongman Haftar last week that the U.S. supported an assault on the country’s capital to depose its United Nations-backed government, according to American officials familiar with the matter”…it continues.. “The revelation that the U.S. President had tacitly recognised Haftar and addressed him as “Field Marshal” in the statement, as a Libyan leader abruptly undermined the country’s internationally-recognized government led by Prime Minister Fayez Al-Sarraj.”

      @Casey Corbett :- See my comment.
      But I’ll say it again …Haftar is an American/ Libyan, and his forces are partially funded by the U.S.A.

      @camping buddy I got that and was previously aware of that, it’s the laughing out loud at innocent people dying that rightfully rubbed me the wrong way.

    This makes me sick, as it should all of us. This is not a time for egocentrism, this is not about us or America. Those were Human beings, some of them children who became pieces of shrapnel. This is absolutely horrifying, and sick. This is a war crime, and those responsible must be held accountable.

      @National Autistic Socialism You make me want to kill myself, like seriously, you make me feel intensely hopeless and suicidal.

      @Casey Corbett Look around the comments section, I’ve seen dozens praising the attack and people say they wanted more of these people dead. Don’t be so naive, obviously there is a great hatred towards these people the likes of which we haven’t seen since the 1930s.

      @National Autistic Socialism What did you think is making me suicidal? These are completely innocent people, just trying to make a better life for themselves. There were kids there, kids.

      They said that economic struggle is a reason to be an asylum seeker. That’s false and wrong.

    But for the bomb, the description of conditions at the detention centers for migrants over there, sounds similar to the southern U.S. detention centers. Don’t they? Maybe we need UN there as well!

  7. This is what happens when the life of a dog is more valuable than that of a man because of his race and his economic state . Who cares anyway ?

    How bad must your circumstances be if you flee TO Libya

    Was nobody able to identify the types of aircraft involved in the attack? That could provide a clue of who was responsible.

  10. Another country that the US messed up and left in shambles.

      Todestanz prime example of what happens when a globalist in power runs unchecked. The destabilization of Libya belongs solely to Obama and hiLIARy.

      What’s sad is that most AMericans are in the dark about what’s going on.

    • Todestanz
      American democracy reached Libya too

    • TheOne WhoWelds
      Obama and Hilary started it and trump has continued it till today ….. Exactly like killing civilians with drones that obama started it and trump has continued it till today…. Just stupid people would be amused with the fight between republicans and democrats…. Our Medias keep lying and keep amusing people with left & right….
      Thats why I’m gonna vote for the only honest candidate and that’s TULSI GABBARD

    Too late, shame, this could have never being happen if Gaddafi were alive.

    Militias in Tripoli use immigrants in war. The Libyan army is fighting these militias so that we can have a homeland in which we live, not a homeland that we hope to escape.

  19. French, saudis and emirates did the attack with the help of US military advisers….
    Seems, CNN doesn’t like to say the facts….

    No doubt UN is concerned regarding human suffering, but should not the source and distribution of weapons be the main target of their concerns!
