The LNA reported that it had struck Al Qaeda in the western part of Derna. Other sources said the steam station got damaged.

One person on Twitter posted an image of a dead child but didn’t give any further details except for saying it was in Derna.

The event could be discounted as the footage of the dead child comes from an Al Ahed Media report from June 6th 2016.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
