A spokesman for the self-styled Libyan National Army is calling for the U.N. to open an investigation into the airstrike on a detention center in Tajoura that killed at least 44 migrants.

Ahmed al-Mesmari denies the LNA targeted the center and said the U.N. should investigate — in cooperation with the LNA — the airstrike and other attacks.

He says other attacks include an airstrike allegedly by Misrata militia on Wednesday south of Tripoli that killed children.

Al-Mesmari says: “This operation is a terrorist operation carried out by the militias. We are targeting legitimate targets in Tripoli.”
