The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – The Libyan Organization for Peace, Care, and Relief appealed yesterday to conflicting militias in the area of south Tripoli to open safe corridors for the exit of the besieged families in the areas of conflict and the adjacent areas, especially the area behind the Yarmouk camp.
The Organization noted in a statement that all humanitarian organizations were unable to reach these places to remove the people because of the intensity of the fire and the continued clashes.
Tripoli recently witnessed violent clashes between rival militias all funded by the proposed Government of National Accord, which resulted in the killing of more than 100 people, while hundreds of others were wounded, displaced, or missing.
On the other hand, the Libyan National Army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Mesmari said that LNA has nothing to do with the ongoing clashes between the militias in Tripoli, and that the army continues to fully secure all the areas under its control such as the entire region of Cyrenaica east of Libya, and large parts of the south and the Libyan west.
