One civilian was reported killed and several others injured by LNA shelling on the Qerqarish neighbourhood of Tripoli. It later turned out the actual cause was a gas explosion.
Hona Souq Al-Khmies posted: “Our confirmed outcome for Qargarsh now:
The death of Ramadan Qurbaj.
His brother’s injury.
An Egyptian worker was injured.”
The Libya Observer tweeted: “One person killed, others wounded in a rocket attack by warlord Haftar’s armed groups on #Tripoli’s densely-populated Qarqarish district, medical sources say.”
Desert Rose later responded to a tweet mentioning the incident: “It was a gas cylinder that exploded ! Either leakage or filling up of gas cylinder! Not any darn missile Alhamdulilah..”
Wolfram Lacher said: “Deleted tweet re: reported shelling on Gargaresh as it appears it was a gas explosion. Indiscriminate shelling on Abu Slim continues.”
