Dozens killed and injured, ambulances and hospitals targeted, in fighting in Benghazi.

According to The International Committee of the Red Cross.

‘The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Libyan Red Crescent are concerned about the humanitarian consequences of the armed violence in Benghazi.

“Dozens of people have died or been injured since the violence broke out,” said Dr Osama Azzam, the head of the health and first-aid department of the Libyan Red Crescent. “An ambulance was destroyed and its driver killed in a targeted attack. One of our hospitals came under attack and was badly damaged, which resulted in its closure. It is increasingly dangerous to take wounded or sick people to hospital for treatment. Hospitals, clinics, ambulances, first-aid volunteers and health staff must be protected.’

Meanwhile, ‘renegade general’ and former CIA man Khalifa Haftar continues to bomb the city from the air, hitting a university, among other things.

‘This can’t keep happening. The U.N. need to implement a no-fly zone to protect these people, and now’, said not a single ‘humanitarian interventionist’.

    you are right, but what shocks me is not that politicians, most of whom owe their position to the money of unsavory people, keep quiet about this massacre, but that the so called liberal press does the same. Not only, again, the NYT, which has become the voice of the USA government, but the Guardian as well. Really shocking. Same thing on Ukraine.
