WHO: 562 dead in Libya since April

The death toll has risen in the fighting since early last month in the Libyan capital of Tripoli between the Libyan army forces led by Marshal Khalifa Hafter and the forces of the National Reconciliation Government led by Faiz Al-Sarraj, according to the World Health Organization (WHO.)

The death toll from the armed conflict in Tripoli has risen to 562, including 40 civilians and 2,855 wounded, including 106 civilians, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on its Twitter account.

Since the fall of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's regime in late 2011, Libya has suffered a sharp split in state institutions, between the East run by the House of Representatives and the army led by Khalifa Hafter, while the Presidential Council of the Reconciliation Government headed by Faiz Al-Sarraj, the internationally recognized government, with the confidence of the parliament while at the same time receiving support from Turkey and Qatar.
