The Deputy Head of the Stability Support Apparatus, Ayoub Abu Ras, has denied in a media statement on Monday the deployment of any of their forces in Tripoli.

Abu Ras added that many leaders from Misrata, Al-Zawiya and Tripoli met on Sunday in order to contain the tension and end any potential disputes which may arise on account of the incident which broke out in the context of an alleged attack on the convoy of the Minister of Interior of the Government of National Accord (GNA).

He confirmed that the entire matter has now been transferred to the Public Prosecutor and all competent authorities for investigation.
