The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has renewed its call to halt all hostilities, demobilization of forces, and stopping the influx of foreign fighters and weapons.

"While the whole world is engaged in fighting the spread of COVID-19, which has overwhelmed several well-resourced countries, attacks and counter-attacks in Libya continue to inflict further suffering and civilian casualties," UNSMIL tweeted out on its account on Wednesday.

Haftar's forces continued their shelling of Tripoli's neighborhoods throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, causing civilian casualties and heavy material losses.
