Summary

Following the onset of armed conflict on 05 April 2019 in South Tripoli, at least 3,650 families (approximately 18,250 individuals) have been displaced from their homes. Since DTM’s last update on 12 April, another 925 displaced families (approximately 4,625 individuals) were identified.

 

Clashes continued in conflict-affected neighborhoods Khalla al Furjan, Qasr Ben Gashir, Ain Zara, Wadi Rabea and Swani, reportedly with increased use of airstrikes. Prolonged outages of electricity, telecommunications and water networks, as well as reported closure of many markets in conflict-areas further add to the hardship of local populations.
