At least seven people were killed, and 33 injured after an air raid hit a factory in Wadi Rabi south of Tripoli on Monday.
A spokesperson of the National Heart Center Hospital in Tripoli said: "We received this morning, at around 11am, 33 injured people after the air raid on the biscuit factory in Wadi Rabi as well as seven people who were killed, four of them were Libyans, one Nigerian, and two from Bangladesh and we have of course proceeded with the necessary medical treatment for the wounded in the National Heart Center."
Footage shows destruction caused by the air raid, burnt vehicles and debris.
Reports say the air raid in southern Tripoli is part of ongoing fighting between forces loyal to Libya's Government of National Accord (GNA) and General Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA).
Haftar's campaign to capture Tripoli from the UN-backed GNA was launched in early April and was met by the resistance of local armed groups backing the UN-recognised government.
