Hostilities in Libya regained the spotlight as a recent report from Reuters suggests that the mortar bombs caused problems in the suburban area of the capital Tripoli.

The report further said that the bombs crashed down after almost hitting a clinic and adding to people’s suffering after two weeks of an offensive by eastern troops on the Libyan capital, which is held by an internationally recognised government.

Shelling could be also heard late at night in parts of Tripoli, residents said. No more details were immediately available.

Libya is one of the important crude oil producers as it is a part of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) group. Hence, any geopolitical challenges to the country could be positive for crude prices.
