One civilian was allegedly injured by LNA shelling near the Khadra Hospital in Tripoli. A woman also reportedly suffered a miscarriage because of the stress caused by the bombardment.

The Libya Observer wrote: “The attacks caused several injuries among civilians, especially the ones that targeted Al-Khadra Hospital in Al-Hadba, where many medical staffers and patients were left in utter panic and intimidation.

A nurse at the hospital, who asked not to be named, said a pregnant woman aborted due to the panic and horror she was in when the shelling hit the hospital.

The media adviser of the Health Ministry Ameen Al-Hashimi said a foreign worker was injured in the vicinity of Al-Khadra Hospital, which was targeted by Haftar’s rockets Monday afternoon.”

Tk Yahroug Kl shy also reported the miscarriage: “All patients in the green hospital went down to the lower floors as a result of the bombing, as there is a pregnant woman who was in the department aborted and her fetus died while she is now under operations.”

The Field Medicine and Support Center said that six patients had to be evacuated because of the shelling.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
