Forces aligned with the Government of National Accord (GNA) conducted security operations in Tarhouna on Wednesday, November 4, to apprehend alleged criminal suspects linked to Libyan National Army (LNA) forces. Reportedly, forces from Brigade 444 were ordered to apprehend suspects believed to be involved with kidnap, torture, and extortion activities. Sources indicate that the security operations resulted in several suspects being detained, but others are believed to have fled. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
Further security operations are to be expected in the region over the near term.
Those in the aforementioned area are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate further 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.
