Sources described by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as “reliable” reported that 110 Syrians were killed in Hurricane Daniel, which struck the city of Derna in eastern Libya, pointing out that more than 100 are missing, and the search is still continuing.

ANHA agency sources reported that about 62 people from Damascus, its countryside, Daraa, and Aleppo, whose names were documented, died as a result of the hurricane in Libya.

The death toll from the floods in the city of Derna in eastern Libya rose to 11,300 people, according to what the United Nations announced on Saturday in an update to the toll, citing the Libyan Red Crescent.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs added on Sunday that another 10,100 people were still missing, noting that elsewhere in eastern Libya outside Derna, floods claimed the lives of 170 people.
