The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) condemned on Tuesday the attack on the headquarters of the Foreign Ministry of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) which left three people dead and nine injured.

In a statement, UNSMIL said it “strongly condemns the cowardly terrorist attack on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, today, in Tripoli. It expresses its deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a speedy recovery to the injured. ”

The statement quoted Ghassan Salamé, Head of the Mission, as saying, “terrorism will not triumph over the Libyans’ decision to move forward towards building their state and renouncing violence. We will not accept any attack on a state institution, especially one committed by a terrorist group. We will work with the Libyan people to prevent terrorist groups from turning Libya into a haven or an arena for their crimes.”

“The Mission is following up with the authorities in Tripoli the course of this tragic incident and stands ready to support.” UNSMIL concluded.
