One civilian was reportedly injured by indiscrimante artillery shelling on Tajoura.
An Amnesty International field investigation said: “A 22-year-old man, Abdelrahman Adel Abi al-Ashhar, was injured when a rocket struck a school located near the eastern perimeters of Mitiga airport, on the evening of 29 July 2019. He told Amnesty International:
“I was standing in front of the supermarket opposite the school, it was about 8pm. A rocket hit the school and I was hit by shrapnel all over my back and legs. We heard two other rockets striking nearby just before the one which hit the school and injured me”.
Fragments recovered at the scene by Amnesty International investigators confirm that the weapon was a 122mm 9M22U “Grad” rocket.”
Other sources said the school was damaged without civilian harm.
Local reports of fighting between GNA and LNA point at one of them as the culprit.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
