Drone Strike Rocks Formation Of Libyan Military Cadets Killing Dozens

first published on June 1, 2020 by

Security camera footage from January 2020 shows a deadly drone attack against military cadets at a Libyan military academy in Tripoli, which resulted in the death of 30 students, with an additional 33 wounded.

The footage is deceiving in relation to the reported numbers, as the troops are tightly packed into formation, making them hard to count. The attack was reported as an “airstrike” by BBC, and it was carried out by rogue general Haftar’s opposition forces. It’s not clear if it was some sort of improvised suicide drone, or if a drone fired a munition.
