Libya’s Prime Minister Survives Assassination Attempt


Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, Libya’s Prime Minister, managed to escape an assassination attempt in Libya’s capital, Tripoli, on the 10th of February. The premier was not injured during the “barrage of bullets” attacking his car, a report claims. 

The assassination attempt comes as a reactionary measure amid an ongoing skirmish for power in Libya as the Prime Minister, who has been leading Libya’s UN-backed government, faces an offer by the parliament to replace him. 

The Tobruk-based House of Representatives is scheduled to convene this week to elect a new Prime Minister, which would be a development that would cause a major blow to the efforts invested in years of turmoil within the oil-rich nation. 

Dbeibeh, however, has vowed that the government, under his leadership, will keep working to ensure that Libya does not go through a “new transitional phase,” and will not permit the “dominant political class of the past to continue in the coming years.”
