"There are no Russian citizens among those killed and injured. The staff of the Russian Embassy in Libya has been working in neighboring Tunisia in the recent several years over remaining terrorist threat in Tripoli", Maria Zakharova said at a press briefing. She also called on Russian nationals to refrain from visiting Libya over the poor security situation in the country.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), at least 58 people were killed and 275 more were injured in the recent outbreak of violence in Libya.
Last week, Haftar ordered an offensive to retake Tripoli from the GNA-backed forces. The LNA has already recaptured a number of settlements on its way to the capital, including the Tripoli International Airport, located around 20 miles away from the capital. The forces loyal to the GNA announced a counteroffensive on Sunday, dubbed Volcano of Rage, to repel the National Army.
