Libya - August 2022

Deadly fights between militias broke out in Tripoli

Violence erupted between armed groups in Libya on 26 and 27 August as forces affiliated with Bashagha attempted to take control of Tripoli and oust the Dbeibah-led government, shattering hope for a peaceful solution. Continued delays in holding elections and growing tensions between rival Libyan forces pose a security threat that has raised increasing concerns. The United Nations (UN) voiced “deep concern” over growing tensions between rival Libyan forces, calling for “immediate” moves to calm the situation.
