TRIPOLI – Health Ministry affiliated with the proposed Government of National Accord announced on Sunday that at least 115 people have been killed and 383 injured in month-long clashes between rival militias in Tripoli.

In addition to the fatalities, The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said 5,065 families were displaced in the capital since 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-Massmari 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.
