Event

Protests following days of electricity outages in the Zliten area (Murqub district) lead to demonstrators blocking the coastal road on Wednesday evening, September 23, and again on Thursday, September 24. Youths have reportedly vowed to continue blocking the road until power is restored. Demonstrators also bemoaned a general deterioration of living conditions. Protests over similar issues were witnessed in Tripoli, with roads being blocked on Wednesday night, including Al Shat Road, and cars being set on fire in the Souk Al-Jumaa area in the early hours of Thursday.

Further protests are expected across Libya in the near term. Due to protesters erecting road blocks, transportation disruptions are expected in the vicinity of any protests. Demonstrations are expected to be closely monitored by security forces and clashes between protesters and law enforcement officials may occur.

Advice

Individuals in Zliten, Tripoli, and across Libya are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
