An air attack by forces loyal to renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar near the Libyan capital killed five doctors, the UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) said on Sunday.

“The field hospital located on the airport road [southern Tripoli] was hit by an air raid,” said health ministry spokesperson Lamine al-Hashemi.

“Five doctors were killed and seven other people, including rescuers, [were] wounded” in Saturday’s attack that al-Hashemi said was carried out by “a Haftar warplane”.

The general, whose Libyan National Army (LNA) enjoys the backing of France, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Russia, launched an offensive in early April to seize control of Tripoli.
