Tripoli, 13 April 2017:
The former People’s Hall between Tripoli’s Suq Al-Thalath roundabout and Hay Al-Andalus was again set on fire today. It is the fourth time since 2011 it has happened, the last time being just eight weeks ago.
The reasons are as yet unknown. Some locals have accused Haithem Tajouri’s Tripoli Revolutionaries Brigade of setting alight the building which once housed Qaddafi’s General People’s Congress. Others have accused the Mobile Forces which supports Khalifa Ghwell and is firmly opposed to Tajouri.
Yet others give a more prosaic explanation. They point out that the building, taken over by Tajouri just over a year ago, was then abandoned and is used by gangs as a drinking and drugs den. Now full of rubbish, it has been the scene of frequent fights.
It is suggested these fights may the real cause for the latest blaze.
