4. Indiscriminate shelling and airstrikes on residential areas continues, in violation of international humanitarian law, with unconfirmed reports of civilian casualties and material damages reported in Ain Zara and Al Twaisha area of Tripoli on the night of 27-28 April.

5. For civilians trapped by frontline fighting, including urban refugees and migrants, access to food is becoming a greater challenge. In many areas, markets are closed due to fighting and civilians are unable to travel safely to purchase food. Even in areas where markets remain open, prices of fresh vegetables and cooking oil have increased, as well as the cost of gas for cooking.

6. Humanitarian partners call for the fast-tracking of humanitarian shipments into Libya, to meet the urgent needs of conflict affected populations. Humanitarian community urgently calls for $10.2m to meet the needs of the growing number of people in Libya displaced or otherwise affected by the conflict.
