The World Health Organization (WHO) in Libya announced on Tuesday that trucks carrying basic medical supplies making their way to Tarhuna and Bani Walid were bombed by Turkish drones last April.
WHO added that it had sent basic medical supplies to the city of Tarhuna, which had been the scene of intense fighting during the past month.
WHO went on to state that supplies have been regularly targeted by drone strikes leaving people facing acute shortages of medicine, food and fuel.
The organization pointed to the displacement of more than three thousand people from their homes, with humanitarian organizations unable to reach them. This comes at a time where help is needed more than ever, especially given the global COVID-19 pandemic. “Plans to establish 100 isolation beds have had to be put on hold”.
The organization indicated that it had received generous support from the German government for these shipments.
