Tripoli Municipality: All armed factions must leave the capital
The Municipality of Central Tripoli has urged all authorities to end all of the armed formations and appearances inside the capital, asking those authorities to give the security tasks to specialized legal authorities in order to secure Tripoli and its residents.

It added that the clashes caused a lot of material damage as well as some injuries for the two armed groups, without any deaths reported, denouncing at the same time terrifying the civilians in their living areas.
“We call on all parties in Tripoli to control themselves, and we shoulder the responsibility of the clashes and their repercussions to those who started the fight.” Said the municipality, without identifying the clashing parties.
On Saturday morning, the capital streets witnessed armed clashes using light and medium weapons in the neighborhoods of the CentralTripoli Municipality.
