Clashes break out between militia groups in Tripoli stop briefly after mediation
According to the Libya Observer, mediation by security leaders, political activists, and a number of Tripoli and area district elders stopped clashes between rival militia in Tripoli that had been happening over the the last two days.
|The clashes are described in a recent Digital Journal article. There are disagreements among different analysts about the significance of the clashes with some feeling that there was an attempt to deal with radical Islamist militia opposed to the GNA but one main clash was between militia associated with two different ministries of the GNA itself. An uneasy calm settled on Tripoli early Saturday.|
The mediation resulted in an agreement that obliged the two armed groups in Al-Nser Park in Bab Benghashir area to leave and then hand the location to the Presidential Security Personnel of the Salvation Government before it goes under the control of Youth and Sports Ministry later.
