Benghazi, 22 February 2014:
Unknown assailants fired an RPG at the Tunisian Consulate in Benghazi this evening causing some limited, . . .[restrict]superficial damage to its outer wall.
Spokesman for Benghazi Joint Security Room, Ibrahim Sharaa, told the Libya Herald that the RPG was fired from a vehicle at around 10pm and most probably targeted, but missed, the car of diplomatic police stationed outside the consulate. No one was injured in the attack.
The Tunisian Consulate in Benghazi was attacked by Ansar Al-Sharia in June 2012 allegedly for insults said made by Tunisian artists against Islam.
Diplomatic buildings have been subject to frequent attacks by armed groups since the revolution. The French and Russian Embassies were attacked in Tripoli last year as well as the infamous attack on the US diplomatic premises in Benghazi in September 2012 which claimed the life of ambassador Chris Stevens.
