Rocket attacks on the Libyan capital Tripoli have killed at least two civilians. Rescue workers reported four more people were injured on Tuesday evening. At least seven violent explosions shook the city center of Tripoli. According to eyewitnesses, dense clouds of smoke rose from the suburb of Abu Slim in the south of the capital.

It was the first time that the city center of Tripoli was affected by the fighting. At first, it was unclear who had fired the rockets. The battles for the Libyan capital, meanwhile, seem to be getting heavier.

Residents of downtown Tripoli reported that the thunder had been more intense at midnight than in previous nights.

The renegade Libyan General Khalifa Haftar had launched an offensive on Tripoli in early April. In a fierce fighting, more than 170 people were killed and 750 others were injured, according to UN data.

The advance of Haftar’s soldiers has been bogged down for two weeks in the outer areas of the capital.

The North African country in a state of chaos since the overthrow of the ruler Muammar al-Gaddafi in 2011. The government in Tripoli is weak and has no control on large parts of the country. Haftar supports a counter-government in eastern Libya. While western states support the government in Tripoli, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt are confessing to Haftar.
