The members of the House of Representatives (HoR) condemned on Thursday the airstrikes on security and services locations in Janzour, western Tripoli, in addition to the airstrikes on Dawa Al-Islamiya Commission HQs and the targeting of an ambulance in Wadi Rabea.

The HoR denounced, in a statement, the silence of the international community - especially the UN - toward the crimes and violations committed by Khalifa Haftar and his "outlaw and terrorist forces."

They also added that they are following closely the deterioration of human rights conditions due to violations made by Haftar's forces against Tripoli residents.

Meanwhile, a warplane from Haftar's Air Force hit Wednesday night security locations in Janzour, few kilometers away from the headquarters of the UNSMIL.

Haftar's forces shelled also Wadi Rabea hitting an ambulance driven by the Head of Emergency and Ambulance Apparatus Nasser Daw, who was trying to evacuate trapped families. Daw's legs were amputated due to the injury.

Haftar's forces have targeted residential areas, detention centers of migrants and ambulances as well as government institutions and electricity stations in many frontlines in southern Tripoli and in Tajoura in eastern Tripoli.
