Media reports: UAE drone attacks military academy in Tripoli

At least 28 students were killed and dozens injured on Saturday in an airstrike on a military academy in the Libyan capital Tripoli.

"An air raid on the military school of Tripoli killed 28 cadets and injured dozens more," Health Ministry of the Government of National Accord (GNA) affirmed.

Media reports said the attack was carried out by a UAE drone earlier sent in support of Haftar forces.

More than 280 civilians and more than 2,000 fighters have been killed since the start of Haftar's assault on Tripoli, according to the United Nations. The fighting has also displaced some 146,000 people.

The UN Security Council last month renewed its calls for a ceasefire in Libya and urged foreign actors to honor an arms embargo on the country -- which Jordan, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates have regularly violated, according to a confidential UN report seen by AFP.
