The deadly attack comes as rival Libyan government and Islamist forces fight for control of Benghazi
A rocket hit a medical center in Libya's eastern Benghazi on Friday, killing three people, medics said.
Seven other people were wounded when the rocket hit a center for dispatching ambulances, medics said. It was unclear who had fired it.
Forces of Libya's official government and Islamist groups are fighting for control of Benghazi, creating chaos that has gripped the oil-producing nation four years after the toppling of Muammar Qaddafi.
The battle for the country's second-largest city has been raging for a year, causing destruction, but neither side has scored a decisive victory.
