TRIPOLI – At least 4 people were killed and 23 others injured in the clashes in Tripoli on Tuesday, a source at the Ministry of Health of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) said on Wednesday.

On the other hand, the relative calm returned on Wednesday to Tripoli after a bloody day of clashes between “al-Somoud Brigade” from Misurat on the one hand, and the Central Security Forces – Abu Salim, headed by Abdul Ghani al-Kikli (Gnewa), on the other hand.

The intensity of the clashes coincided with a heavy flight of unidentified aircraft, witnesses said.

The Central Security Forces – Abu Salim retreated in the direction of Abu Salim area after losing the areas of al-Mashrou and Jazeerat al-Fahm, according to sources.

The clashes also caused a complete power blackout to the south and west of Tripoli, down to the Libyan-Tunisian border.

The power cut was caused by damage in circles 1 and 2, south of al-Hadhba, the Spokesman for the General Electricity Company, Mohamed Takouri, said.
