The residents of Tajoura suburb, east of Tripoli, demanded in a televised statement on Friday the immediate release of their sons detained by the Special Deterrence Force, and to hand over the wounded to their families to complete their medical treatment, holding the Deterrent Force accountable for the safety of their sons.

The residents warned that they shall not be liable for what might happen if their demands are not met immediately, stressing their willingness to defuse tension between Souq Al-Jumua and Tajoura, and the promotion of the rule of law, in addition to activating the security services in order to provide security for citizens.

Mitiga airport witnessed bloody clashes last week over demands by a brigade from Tajoura to release some prisoners whom the brigade says were “arbitrarily detained by the Special Deterrence Force.”
