Libyan PM’s residence targeted with RPGs

NNA – The residence of Libyan Prime Minister Abdulhamid al-Dbeibah was targeted with rocket-propelled grenades on Sunday in an attack that left no casualties; a Libyan minister told Reuters.

The minister, who spoke anonymously, confirmed in a message that the attack only caused some damage. The minister has not disclosed any further details.

Two citizens said they had heard massive explosions near the sea in Tripoli#39;s luxury Hay Andalus neighborhood, the home to PM Dbeibah#39;s residence.

A citizen said that after the massive explosions were heard, heavy security forces with their vehicles were deployed around the area.

Libya has had little peace or stability since a 2011 NATO-backed uprising and split in 2014 between eastern and western factions, with rival administrations governing each area.

Dbeibah#39;s Government of National Unity was installed through a UN-backed process in 2021, but the parliament in the east stopped recognizing its legitimacy at the end of that year after a failed attempt to hold national elections, which led to prolonged political deadlock.

Early in March, three key leaders said they agreed on the quot;necessityquot; of forming a new unified government that would supervise long-delayed elections.

Dbeibah has vowed not to cede power to a new government without national elections. — Reutersnbsp;
