Sources close to Libyan Prime Minister Fathi Bashagha confirmed to my channel Al-Arabiya and Al-Hadath that he had arrived in Tripoli on Monday night.
The Nawasi Koutoubia, one of the largest armed groups in Tripoli, greeted Bashagha’s arrival in the capital.
Before Bashagha’s arrival, the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity of Libya, Abdel Hamid Dabaiba, ordered that the drones be put on alert and ready for any emergency and use live ammunition against any suspicious movement, in the context of armed clashes. between the factions in competition that took place in the capital, Tripoli, and some areas of the western country in recent days.
In a letter addressed to the Commander of the Air Force corner in his government, Al-Dabaiba demanded to declare the drone flight operations room alert and monitor any armed movement within greater Tripoli (the concentration point west of Jisr 17, south of Jisr Al-Sabi`ah and east of Al-Quwai`a gate), “and authorized the operations room to ‘directly deal’ with live ammunition any suspicious movement that could destabilize and prove this with aerial photographs and coordinates”.
Dabaiba set the duration of the alert at one week, starting yesterday Monday, but did not clarify the reason for this alert, but it is believed to be related to the security tensions that the capital, Tripoli, and the cities of the West are experiencing. of Libya witnessed in recent days, caused by armed militias vying for influence.
The decision comes hours after armed clashes broke out in the Janzour area, southwest of the capital, Tripoli, between the “Farsa Janzour” militia of the Ministry of Defense and the “55 Brigade” of the “Support for Stability” loyal to the Ministry of the Interior, which resulted in deaths, injuries and material losses in shops and buildings, along with other clashes in the city of Sabratha.
These repeated clashes in the capital, Tripoli, and in some cities in western Libya have embarrassed the Dabaiba government, which is facing internal and external pressure to cede power to the parliamentary mandated Fathi Pashaga government.
