The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The outbreak of hostilities in Tripoli since August 26 has displaced at least 3,845 families and 192,225 people, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said.

Most of the displaced civilians still find refuge with friends and relatives living in safer areas, while others hide in schools or public buildings temporarily, UNHCR said in a report released on Friday.

UNHCR and its partner, Libyan Relief and Humanitarian Aid Agency (Libaid), continue to monitor the situation; provide assistance to affected families in Tripoli and elsewhere, including al-Zawiya, Sorman, Rikdalain, Sabrata, Tarhouna, Beni Waleed and Yefrin.
