Local media quoted sources from the city of Tobruk stating that two people were killed after clashes broke out between two families in the city.

According to the source, the two fighting sides clashed about who holds the office of the director of social security.

The local people fear the dispute may evolve and called on the authorities to take immediate action to prevent any tribal alliances that might escalate the situation, according to the source.

The authorities in the eastern district did not issue any statements about the accident, amid unverified reports claiming that a third person has also died as a result of the clashes.

The security situation in the eastern region is growing worse since it fell in Haftar's hands, with the continuing influence of his militias, which include outlaw groups and extremists.
