|Comments:|| Following an intensification of conflict in southern Tripoli, Tarhuna and Sirt, since the 7th of June 2020, nearly 25,000 people have been forced to flee their homes, according to the Libyan Red Crescent Society updates and IOM’s Displacement Tracking Update.
The majority of those displaced are in the east of the country, particularly Ejdabia (6,050 people), Benghazi (5,250 people), Al Bayda (1643 people) and Tocra (402 people), although other people have fled to the west, particularly Bani Waleed (4,750 people). Some of those recently arrived IDPs in the East had previously been staying in Sirt and Ashshwayrif, before moving further east. |
