The Red Crescent spokesman, Asaad Jaafar, has said that rescue teams were unable to retrieve five bodies that were shot dead, including a woman, near Sidra Road, south of Tripoli.

Jaafar said in a press statement that the Red Crescent teams have been trying since Friday to recover the bodies from the firing line after receiving a report regarding the presence of three cars carrying the victims.

However, they were forced to retreat after being subjected to mass fire, but managed to save two of them who were rushed to the nearest hospital.
