TRIPOLI – Undersecretary of Diwan Al-Jumah Municipality, Riad Al-Tahir Biram, said that seven Grad rockets landed at dawn on Saturday at civilian houses in the coastal town of Rafah, which lies within the administrative borders of the town of Souq al-Jumaa, adjacent to the air base of Mitiga, east of the capital, Tripoli.

Biram stated that one person was injured as a result of the incident, which also caused considerable damage to the houses and cars of the residents.

Tripoli has witnessed deadly clashes since August 26th which resulted in the death of more than 100 people, while hundreds of others are injured, displaced and missing. UN Support Mission in Libya recently brokered a cease-fire agreement between rival militias funded by the proposed Government of National Accord; however, clashes erupted again in southern Tripoli since Tuesday morning.
