The United Nations Support Mission In Libya condemned the attack, which it branded as a “cowardly and terrorist” act, on the Foreign Ministry's HQ in the capital Tripoli.

“Terrorism will not triumph over the Libyans’ decision to move forward towards building their state and renouncing violence”, UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame tweeted on the mission's account, stressing that the attack on state institutions is an attack on all Libyans, according to the statement.
