The agreed upon humanitarian truce started on Saturday afternoon after a late approval by Khalifa Haftar and his forces, following the Friday consent announcement by the Government of National Accord’s Presidential Council. 

However, the UN-proposed humanitarian truce was violated on day one of Eid Al-Adha as rockets fell on two different locations inside Tripoli.

The first attack was on a house of civilians. Rockets fell on the house in Souq Al-Jumua in Tripoli causing only material damage.

The second attack was again on Mitiga Airport in Tripoli leading to over 5 hours of flights’ suspension.

No condemnation by the UN support mission in Libya has been made yet.

According to sources from Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation (Volcano of Rage), the attacks were carried out by Khalifa Haftar’s forces positioned on southern Tripoli frontlines.
