Thousands of families who fled armed confrontations in Benghazi and Derna are unable to return to their homes or to reclaim their properties for fear of reprisals by Dignity forces, Human Rights Watch said Thursday.

In its World Report 2019, the organization said that there are still 200 thousand internally displaced persons in Libya, noting that the agreement between Misurata and Tawergha provides for the return of about 48 thousand people displaced from Tawergha, but only a few hundred have returned so far, because of destruction and other security reasons.
