Four civilians, all of them from the Bin Zakri family, were reported killed because of if indiscriminate artillery shelling on their house near the Airport road in Tripoli.
Dr Suad Diab, a well-known doctor from Tripoli, her husband Ali Eltaher Bin Zakri and their two children Mohammed Ali Bin Zakri and Riham Ali Ben Zakri reportedly died after a shell hit their home just behind Libya Mall.
Ewan Libya wrote: “Media sources confirmed the death of a family of four after a shell fell on their house near Tripoli airport.”
Other sources published similar reports.
The Tripoli Protection Force militia accused the Somoud Brigade which supports the 7th Brigade of conducting the shelling.
Two sources, Radaa Abuslim and Alwasat, however, contested the claims and said the story was untrue, citing the Ministry of Health.
A local medical source told Airwars that the family’s death currently can’t be confirmed.
The case will be updated once there is more information available.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
