Tripoli, 21 August 2017:
The home of a leading member of the Misrata Youth Movement (MYM) was shot up early this morning by gunmen who then fled.
The MYM described the attack on the home of its spokesman Rejab Zaydon as a “cowardly and treacherous terrorist act”. The MYM has been outspoken in its support for national reconciliation and its criticism of those in the city who it sees as obstructing this.
It blamed the attack of local political groups who it said were seeking to intimidate those who challenged their dominance.
“We affirm our attachment to peaceful choices in the national struggle and our right to respond by legal means” it said, adding “We invite all those involved in the movement to exercise restraint” .
