The death toll mounted, as the latest round of shelling by forces loyal to General Khalifa Haftar, killed four more people and injured 23 people here on Tuesday. The death toll now stands at 125 people deceased.
The World Health Organization had previously said that at least 121 people were killed while scores of others were injured ever since clashes broke out between Haftar's Libyan National Army and the Libyan armed forces.
Libya has been largely divided into two factions ever since the death of dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The LNA-backed parliament controlled the east of Libya, while the UN-backed interim Government of National Accord (GNA) governs Libya's western region from Tripoli.
