      Good morning everybody hi

      quote-In Tripoli, the Russian embassy was bombarded and an attempt was made to penetrate its territory, ITAR-TASS was informed in the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

      According to international law, the diplomatic mission of any state is protected by all means and means of the host country. Power in the host country guarantees safety.This is a blatant case, in my opinion, the Foreign Ministry should vigorously protest and present a note to the Libyan ambassador to Russia. Through the UN Security Council, to condemn the gangsters' extremists.

      The organizers are famous, the CIA, Saudis, Qatar.
      The Marines must be put on guard at the embassy. And water the animals if that.

        This is unlikely. There was rather a test of the pen of the Libyan revolutionaries. That is, an independent test of a pen of some kind of small gang to raise authority. It is a pity that none of the attackers was killed or investigated ...

    When there are a lot of weapons in the country that are not controlled by anyone, then such attacks will continue. Spring damn, turning into quiet madness.

      You can’t act with them diplomatically, since you don’t have anyone to talk to, it’s generally necessary to get our diplomats out there, until better times, who will not find and will not look for the perpetrators, remember the beating of our diplomat in Qatar, and that someone was punished, it is necessary to break off diplomatic relations with them, and in the event of any provocations, launch missile strikes on them, turn it around more efficiently, but they will talk they will condemn us, but then they will get used to it and understand Russia it’s impossible to offend you, Israel’s policy is an example punch, punch, and p he wanted to puke on all UN resolutions.

    And that our Foreign Ministry thought that the Libyans would say thank you to him for having thrown Libya to pieces at the time.

    What the Libyan Interior Ministry said about the shooting;

    Libyan law enforcement agencies have speculated on the reason for the shelling of the Russian embassy in Tripoli. According to them, the attack could have been in protest against the killing of a Libyan officer committed by a Russian citizen.
    According to preliminary data, a Russian citizen who arrived in Libya through the Tunisian border shot and killed a Libyan officer in his house in the suburbs of Tripoli, as well as injuring his mother. The woman wrote an appeal on the walls, in which she spoke negatively about the uprising in Libya, which led to the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
    Nothing is known about the woman’s motives, nor is it clear where she is. According to the American agency Associated press, she can take refuge in the Russian embassy. "Most likely, the attackers thus expressed their protest against the killing of an aircraft mechanic by the Libyan army," the Libyan Interior Ministry said.

      Russian citizen who arrived in Libya through the Tunisian border,

      It turns out that she crossed the border illegally. If it were legal, they would write that it came to Libya in transit through Tunisia. Yes, and in general, who prevented her from entering directly?
      Conclusion - illegal! wink

      shot dead a Libyan officer in his house in the suburbs of Tripoli, and also injured his mother

      It turns out that she arrived in Libya only for this purpose.
      The conclusion is a killer! wink

      Where did you see the killer, and even the one who left the witness alive, who instead of rushing off even the appeal on the walls writes in large print?
      And she still did not draw graffiti? wink
      Quote: Russ69
      According to the American agency Associated press, she can take refuge in the Russian embassy

      And where does the Associated press get such data? All the more reliable. Did they follow this woman?
      And why, after his deed, did not disappear from the territory of Libya at all? After all, she already has experience of illegal border crossing. wink
      Quote: Russ69
      Most likely, the attackers thus expressed their protest.

      A protest is when they shout and carry banners. Or is shooting now also considered only a protest?
      Maybe let's go - we’ll protest at the Libyan embassy?
      wink

      This was what we had to start with. And in general, was there a “boy”? Well, here, "was there a woman"? wink

      And the conclusion - this whole story is bullshit and provocation!

    What conclusion can be drawn from what happened? .. No Gaddafi - no order ...
    Fortunately, none of the diplomats and embassy workers was hurt ... But for some reason I am inclined to think that this is far from the last anti-Russian trick of the "liberated from tyranny Libyan people" ...
    And we still supply them with modern weapons in the form of self-propelled anti-tank systems ("Chrysanthemums") ...

    Interestingly, the American embassies guard their marines, and the Russian Federation has some kind of "own" protection?
