Displaced families in Tripoli receive aid from Libyan Red Crescent as clashes continue

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The Libyan Red Crescent in Tripoli announced yesterday via its Facebook page that it provided displaced families in the areas of Ein Zara and Abu Slim southern Tripoli with 200 food baskets. The families evacuated their homes due to continuous clashes between rival militias.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has previously revealed that at least 5,065 families have been displaced since clashes erupted on August 26th.

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, including Benghazi, Derna, and Tobruk, and large parts of the south and the Libyan west.
