Intermittent clashes occurred overnight near the Jibs Gate and 7 April Camp areas south of the capital Tripoli on Friday, October 2, between General Security forces from Zintani and forces from Saraya al-Zawiya. The Joint Force has reportedly intervened to resolve the conflict and has pledged to arrest those responsible. There were no immediate reports of casualties in the clashes.
Tensions remain in the area and further confrontations are possible.
Those in Tripoli are advised to monitor local media sources for further updates on the incident and any associated security operations and heed any directives issued by local authorities.
The security environment in Libya remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas (with appropriate security protocols in place), other areas should be considered strictly off-limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
