Tripoli, 23 March 2015:
The Libyan National Army (LNA) bombed Libya Dawn’s operations room in Tarhouna, 90 kilometres south east . . .[restrict]of the Tripoli, this morning. Another report says that the location was also an Dawn training camp and that there were a number of deaths. There has been no confirmation about casualties
Eye witnesses in Tarhouna told the Libya Herald that they had seen flames rising from the camp.
Local residents said that Libya Dawn leaders had arrived in Tarhouna yesterday trying to encourage young men in the town to join the battle west of Tripoli in revenge the death of leading Dawn commander Salah Bourki, who was originally from Tarhouna and who was killed two days ago by LNA forces.
Meanwhile, the media office of Libya Dawn announced that Zintan airport was targeted in an airstrike this morning in reprisal for the attack against the Tarhouna camp. They claim that the aircraft used in the attack had flown from Zintan airport.
There has been a number of claims about air raids by both sides that have turned out to be inaccurate, and in some cases apparently deliberately misleading.
The last definite air attacks in the west of the country by the LNA were on Saturday. Yesterday, LNA sources claimed to have hit a number of targets in the capital, including two near Tripoli International Airport. But no such strikes appeared to have occurred. [/restrict]
