Haftar forces shell drug depots in Tripoli

Forces loyal to the Libyan General Khalifa Haftar have attacked several drug storage facilities in the Sawani area, south of Tripoli, the UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) reported yesterday.

The GNA said in a statement that the bombing had targeted the drug stores at a hospital, dubbed Al-Khadra, which contains medical supplies and equipment used for coronavirus patients.

On Thursday, the health ministry suspended operations at Al-Khadra after it was attacked three times in 72 hours by Haftar’s militias. The attacks were reported to have destroyed the hospital’s drug store and operations’ rooms. Operations at the hospital were resumed on Friday for coronavirus patients, according to local sources.

Peshmerga: Daesh formed new courts and imposed royalties in Iraq

Minister of Kurdistan Regional Guard Brigades in northern Iraq, Shoresh Ismail, said on Sunday that the terrorist group Daesh had formed new courts and re-imposed royalties on civilians in areas which lack the presence of security forces.

On Tuesday, Daesh militants launched an attack on the Peshmerga forces in the Koljo district of the Sulaymaniyah Governorate, killing two Peshmerga members.

“The terrorist group Daesh has rearranged its ranks in areas where there is a security vacuum, especially the disputed-over areas between Erbil and Baghdad,” added Ismail in a statement to reporters on the sidelines of his visit to the same district on the outskirts of Sulaymaniyah Governorate.

Ismail expressed his regret for not being able to coordinate with the Iraqi forces, which “has created a perfect opportunity for the group to re-emerge in those areas.”

He stressed that Daesh “has imposed royalties and reconstituted courts and to penalise people. It has also received support from some parties and managed to provide financial compensations to its fighters.”

Yemen’s Ministry of Culture: Houthi Militia bombed archeological fortress

Yemen’s Ministry of Culture said on Sunday that the Houthi militia had bombed the historical and archaeological Al-Qobaa fortress in Hajjah Governorate, northwest of Yemen.

The ministry condemned what it called the criminal act against the heritage and civilization of Yemen, according to a statement published by the official Saba news agency.

The statement described the attack as “a clear violation of all international covenants and agreements for the protection of cultural heritage.”

It added that the destruction of Yemen’s cultural heritage signifies the destruction of humanity’s cultural heritage because Yemen has played an important role in the formation of human civilization. The responsibility, therefore, was for humanity to exert firm and serious pressure on the militia to stop its absurd acts.
