UNHCHR: Attacks on civilians and infrastructure in Tripoli may be war crime

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet warned that attacks targeting civilians and infrastructure in Tripoli could be classified as war crimes.

In a statement, Bachelet called on the parties to the conflict in Libya to abide by international laws and human rights law and to fulfill their responsibilities towards civilians and infrastructure.

Bachelet pointed out that the bombing of Mitiga Airport, by Haftar forces last Monday, has obstructed the departure of many civilians from the capital Tripoli.
