Ceasefire violated again in Tripoli

'Severe clashes between 7th Brigade and TRB'

20 September, 16:45

    CAIRO - Violations continue of the ceasefire agreed in Tripoli to put an end to clashes between militias. After violations on Monday and Tuesday, others were reported by Libyan media between Wednesday night and Thursday morning in the southern part of the capital. The most severe clashes were reported on the Facebook page of Akhbar Libya between the 7th Brigade (rebels that initially sparked the fighting last month) and the Tripoli Revolutionary Brigades (TRB). The post said that the 7th Brigade had advanced a great deal, while the Alawasat website reported inhabitants as saying that they had heard mortar shelling and explosions near the airport perimeter in the southern section of Tripoli (presumably the international airport closed since 2014 due to fighting). The ceasefire violations over the previous two days were attributed by the media to clashes between the Somoud Brogade under Misurata-native Salah Badi and Ghneiwa under Abdul-Ghani Al-Kikli.
