Tripoli, 12 August 2014:
Three missiles were fired into Zawia yesterday around sunset today, one of which hit a house . . .[restrict]causing significant damage but no injuries to the occupants.
It is not known where the rockets were fired from or by whom. A leading Warshefana militia commander has denied that any of his forces were responsible. He told the Libya Herald that an investigation into the incident was nonetheless underway, adding that Zawia officials had also launched a separate investigation.
Zawia and the Warshefana agreed a peace deal last week under which the former would cease to support the Misrata-led Operation Libya Dawn in Tripoli. According to the Warshefana commander, both sides have continued the prisoner exchange under the deal.
Meanwhile, the Libyan Revolutionaries Operation Room forces that have gathered in Zawia aiming to launch an assault on the Warshefana are still there. However, no one else is reported to have joined them. They are apparently awaiting an order from the Chief of Staff to attack. This is unlikely to come given that he is under investigation by the House of Representatives.
