Tripoli, 19 July 2014:
A grenade attack on a central Tripoli police station is the most . . .[restrict]recent in a string of bombings in the capital.
Last night unidentified men destroyed a car in front of a Tripoli police station when they threw a grenade from their car as they drove by, eye witnesses have said. No one was injured as a result of the blast.
The night before in the early hours of the morning a huge car bomb exploded on a roundabout by Bab Al-Aziziya which connects to the Airport Road. The explosion could be heard from many miles around. There are unconfirmed reports that the bomb was being prepared at the time of its explosion, killing the man who was working on it. It has been suggested that the bomb was intended to be used on the Airport Road.
Five days ago Tripoli’s Counter Criminal Agency defused six massive car bombs. Investigators said the bombs which weighed 200 kilos each would have caused significant human and material losses had they been detonated. They were found by Qaaqaa’s border patrol guards near their base in Salaheddin district.
Two car bombs more exploded not far from the same headquarters in the early hours of Sunday morning, just before the first clashes began at Tripoli International Airport.
