30 Killed in Attack on Military Academy in Libya

Turkey has Approved Deployment of Troops to Support UN-Recognized Government


At least 30 people were killed in attack on a military academy in Libya capital, Tripoli.

The Saturday attack left thirty-three other people wounded.

According to reports by the health ministry, a majority of the victims were military students from different cities across the country.

The victims of the attack were not immediately identified.

The Libyan National Army (LNA) led by renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar has been on an offensive against the United Nations-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA).

The number of attacks, which are characterized by air raids and shelling, have been on a rise in the past weeks.

There are fears that the clashes could escalate after Turkey’s parliament voted to allow a troop deployment to support the GNA.
