Tunis, 1 December 2017:
Civilian casualties in November resulting from hostilities in Libya fell to 16, UNSMIL has said. It is less than half the October figure of 38 casualties which included 23 deaths. It is the lowest figure for casualties since February which saw 11 civilian casualties.
Victims last month included five men killed and five injured, one women hurt, and one boy killed and four children wounded (three boys and one girl).
Benghazi bore the brunt of the casualties with five deaths and five injuries while Khoms saw four injured, Sirte one death and the Wirshefana area one injury.
However these figures do not include seven killed in Khoms when a member of the local military council and his relatives reportedly shot dead seven men from another family in their homes. This, however, was seemingly a revenge killing, and as such a civil criminal act, not the result of the conflict in the country.
