Tripoli, 4 March 2016:
The Tripoli home of maverick Misratan politician Abdurrahman Sewehli was hit by a rocket today . . .[restrict]in a likely response from those who deplore his support for the Government of National Accord.
A visibily angry Sewehli called a press conference to condemn the rocketing as the work of terrorists. UNSMIL chief Martin Kobler said that the assault was an unacceptable act that could not be tolerated. He added that the attack on Sewehli was an attack on all supporters of the Libyan Political Accord.
At around noon, the RPG slammed into Sewehli’s house in the Ben Ashour district near the Swiss embassy. It caused no casualties and the assailants were not identified.
Sewehli, a member of both the House of Representatives and of the rump of the GNC, has recently been deeply critical of GNC president Abu Shamain. Last December, he accused the GNC leader of hypocrisy, narrow self-interest and political insanity in obstructing the Libyan Dialogue.
The GNC-appointed Tripoli administration of Khalifa Ghwell has warned that those backing the GNA would “face the consequences”. [/restrict]
