Intensification of -operated drone strikes/ AF airstrikes in the past 48 hours (a dozen on Misrata's Airforce Academy, some in Tripoli's Abu Salim district, Ein Zara & Gheryan's vicinity). The state of war around is increasingly internationally sustained by air.

Sick stuff. War crimes. But we have all ‘moved on’ from Syria.

2 reasons behind dispatching an assessment mission to Zuwara's airport: 1. the airport is used by the mission 2. the 's spokesperson claimed the repeated airstrikes on publicly (so it isn't naming & shaming, it's just shaming)

Kani's mutilation of bodies has been an underreported pattern that is one of the ugliest sides of this war (some PoWs mutilated weren't even combatants), and is also one of many reasons why many anti-LNA forces completely refuse the idea of a ceasefire with 's Kaniyat.

Your daily "blame-it-all on the 2011 intervention" piece, with the usual analytical contortionism that confines the country's history & challenges to the last 8 years...

Another LNA airstrike on Zuwara airport. LNA says there are Turkish drones there. In today's strike, LNA says they hit a hangar containing Turkish drones. But: I have it on very good authority that there are no drones in that tiny airport, which is used by the UN. Pics to follow

Not really, the LNA is referenced in the first instance because the targeting of health workers had become systematic, so it's a bit difficult to ignore since it is, after all, a war crime... the Zuwara airstrike is referenced because the LNA itself has claimed it.

Two statements calling out the today: - one for deadly attacks on medical staff - one for increasing attacks on civilian airports (referencing the self-declared strike on today)

Grad shells on Mitiga & airstrikes on Zwara airport... a disaster brews. In the meantime, states respond to this with complacency, watering down statements & shielding local proxies from criticism. Spare us your faux-outrage when the worst happens, you're equally responsible.

Once again, Grad rockets target Mitiga airport in Tripoli, killing one person. Such attacks are bound to hit the terminal at some point, and could cause dozens of casualties. One way of deterring such attacks would be to call out the perpetrators.
