The family’s home lies close to the headquarters of the army’s special forces unit in Benghazi, which is backing a rogue general who has vowed to crush Islamists in the city, a security official said. The 20 family members all suffered shrapnel wounds when the rocket hit their home in the central Abuhdima neighbourhood, Al-Huari hospital spokesman Hani al-Aribi said. Rogue general Khalifa Haftar launched an assault on Islamists in the city last Friday in which at least 79 people were killed.
