Tripoli, 27 July 2014.
A Grad missile hit a farmhouse in the southern Tripoli suburb of Kremia this morning, killing . . .[restrict]23 Egyptians who were staying there.
It is not known who fired the missile. Both the forces fighting each other, the Misrata-led revolutionaries and the Zintanis and their allies have blamed each other.
This comes just days after the Egyptian Foreign Ministry warned Egyptians against any travel to Libya. The Foreign Ministry has now advised all Egyptians to move to safer areas inside Libya or to the Tunisian border.
This is the third incident since May in which Egyptians have been killed in the midst of armed clashes in Libya. Two Egyptians were killed in Benghazi on 19 July when a mortar fire hit their home. An Egyptian was killed in the Salaheddin area of Tripoli in May when a rocket hit the house where he was staying.
Libya is a common destination for Egyptians seeking work. However, the country has become increasingly dangerous for Egyptians, who have at times been the intentional target of violence over the past year.
