The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The UN-affiliated International Organization for Migration (IOM) said on Friday that the fighting between the armed groups of the Tripoli-based government and the Libyan National Army in and around the capital Tripoli has so far forced more than 38,000 people to flee their homes.

“There are now 38,900 displaced persons as clashes continue to rage in Tripoli, and more civilians are fleeing their homes,” IOM said in a statement.

“IOM Libya DTM (Displacement Tracking Matrix) is tracking displacement daily as well as assessing the needs of vulnerable persons which is vital in ensuring an informed humanitarian response,” the UN agency noted.
