The Salvation Government has strongly condemned Friday's shelling on Benghazi's Al-Keesh Square protesters.

The government expressed in a statement on Saturday concern about the shelling which left 9 people dead, describing it as a terrorist act.

The statement accused Dignity Operation of being behind the shelling to mix up facts.

"This criminal and terrorist act, which was carried out by the hands of betrayal that have been destroying Benghazi for more than one year and a half, aims to mix up papers, and then accuse the loyal people of Benghazi." The statement reads.

On Friday, 4 protesters were killed and 14 others were injured in an indiscriminate shelling on an anti-Leon’s proposed government protest in Al-Keesh Square.
