ISIS claimed early Wednesday responsibility of the attack on the Libyan foreign Ministry in Tripoli.

Reuters reported that Amaq news agency – the terrorists’ news wing – had posted a statement saying three of its members carried out the attack, adding that they killed two people inside the Foreign Ministry.

Three ISIS attackers stormed Tuesday morning the headquarters of the Foreign Ministry in Tripoli, killing two employees and a Presidential guard before two of them had been gunned down and the third exploded himself.

The Health Ministry said 21 people had been injured.
