One civilian was reported killed in an LNA airstrike on Ain Zara.
Tripoli Al Izz wrote: “The death of the young Karim Qashout, born in 1997, one of the staff of the coast of sweets after the bombing of his house in Ain Zara.”
February TV said: “One person was killed and members of his family were injured when the Haftar militia bombed his home in Ain Zara.”
Tarek Alwan tweeted about the death of his relative: “The death of the son of my cousin Karim Qashout as a result of indiscriminate shelling by the forces of Haftar, born in 1997 young man and polite working in the coast of sweets.”
An Amnesty International investigation later concluded: “Fragments examined at the scene by Amnesty International investigators confirm the weapon was a Chinese Blue Arrow 7 guided missile, launched from a Wing Loong drone that was operated by pilots from the UAE on behalf of the LNA. This was a precision strike which, in the absence of any evidence to the contrary, targeted a civilian by his home in an attack which could have endangered other civilian members of his family. Direct attacks against civilians may constitute war crimes.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
