Two men stand at the scene of an overnight rocket attack, which no group has claimed responsibility for so far, in the Libyan capital of Tripoli on April 17th, 2019. A number of rockets struck parts of Tripoli late yesterday after strongman Khalifa Haftar launched an offensive earlier this month to take the Libyan capital, witnesses and journalists said. At least seven powerful explosions rocked the city center. Shortly afterwards, witnesses said, columns of smoke were seen above the district of Abu Salim in the south of the city, which was hit by a number of rockets.
