Libya Alerte de sécurité

Airstrike reportedly leaves at least three civilians dead in Tripoli on October 14; further attacks possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 14/10/2019, 12h00 until 15/10/2019, 11h59 (Africa/Tripoli). COUNTRY/REGION Tripoli

Event

An airstrike in Tripoli on Monday, October 14, killed three civilians and wounded two others. The strike was targeting a military intelligence camp in the Al-Fornaj neighborhood in the southern part of the capital. Several government officials reportedly attributed the attack to Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA).

Further violence, including shelling and airstrikes, is possible in the coming weeks, especially in contested areas to the south of Tripoli.

Context

The LNA launched an offensive into southern Tripoli on April 4. The advance halted 10 km (6 mi) south of central Tripoli within a week and frontlines have remained largely static since. Throughout this time, LNA precision strikes have targeted military assets operating from Tripoli's Mitiga International Airport (MJI) and Misrata International Airport (MRA). Disruption to civilian air operations has been minimal.

Advice

Individuals in Libya and those traveling via MRA are advised to monitor the situation, confirm flight reservations, avoid areas affected by fighting, maintain safe and current evacuation plans, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Libya remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
