Heightened security measures are expected to be implemented in Tripoli and other Libyan cities ahead of events commemorating the 2011 Libyan Revolution on Sunday, February 17. Associated transportation and business disruptions are to be anticipated over the coming days.
According to local sources, such events often alter typical patterns of security activity in Tripoli. Terror groups have historically exploited periods of heightened threat in Tripoli to move assets into place for attacks while attention of security forces is directed elsewhere.
Individuals in Tripoli and elsewhere in Libya are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations and large public gatherings as a precaution, remain vigilant for militant activity, report suspicious objects and behavior to the police, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
