  • Rockets have hit the Rixos luxury hotel in Libya’s capital, Tripoli, early on Friday which the international government has blamed on Eastern Forces trying to capture the city.

Rockets have hit the Rixos luxury hotel in Libya’s capital, Tripoli, early on Friday in an attack which the international government has blamed on Eastern Forces trying to capture the city.

The interior ministry published pictures of a damaged room at the hotel, where lawmakers opposing the offensive by troops loyal to Khalifa Haftar have been meeting.

Although no other information about the strike was immediately available, Haftar’s Libyan National Army has been trying to take Tripoli since the beginning of April but it has been unable to breach southern defenses.

Fighting has been concentrated in southern suburbs but the Rixos is much closer to the city center, next to the former residence of Muammar Gaddafi, who was toppled in 2011.
