Tripoli, 25 December 2014:
There are unconfirmed reports that two people have been killed in shooting tonight at a Misrata . . .[restrict]hospital between guards and relatives of injured fighters who have been brought from the front line near the Es Sidra oil terminal.
It is understood that when security personnel at Misrata Central Hospital turned anxious relatives away, the relatives came back with weapons and a deadly fire fight broke out in which two people died.
It has been suggested that local feelings are running high. Casualties appear to have been heavy in the latest assaults by Libya Dawn forces on the eastern oil terminals.
The Misratans are reportedly using a single air ambulance to ferry between eight and ten dead or wounded fighters from Sirte’s Ibn Sina Hospital to Misrata. The helicopter is said to have made nine flights today.
Meanwhile Misratans used social media to deny claims that for the first time the Libyan Airforce has mounted a raid on a military facility actually in the city itself.
Reliable sources have told the Libya Herald that there were two airstrikes this afternoon at points some 15 kilometres to the east of the city. There are no details of the targets nor the damage inflicted.
