A group of Bazina Street locals in Misrata city, from where Fathi Bashagha comes, have given the House of Representatives-designated Prime Minister 24 hours to evacuate all armed vehicles and fighters affiliated with him from the area and keep it outside the conflict.
The locals denounced Monday the killing and intimidation in Tripoli and what is happening as well in Misrata, including blocking roads, especially Bazina road by people from outside the area, not to mention the presence of mercenaries among civilians.
