The death toll of the attack on the High National Elections Commission (HNEC) in Tripoli’s Ghout Al-Shaal has reached 16 and injuries reached 19, according to the field hospital official Mohammed Damja, who talked to local media.

The attack was conducted by three suicide bombers, two of whom exploded themselves causing a huge damage to the building, leaving it almost completely destructed.

“The data section has been damaged, Oh my God,” a personnel at the scene in the building said in one of the circulated footage of the attack.
