Summary

Since the onset of armed conflict in the southern areas of Tripoli on 4 April 2019, the number of people affected has significantly increased, with at least 7,515 families (approximately 37,575 individuals) displaced from their homes.
In addition, around 3,332 migrants remain in detention centers in conflict affected areas, and are among the most vulnerable populations at risk. Furthermore, there is a significant population of urban migrants also present in the affected areas. Urban migrants in the context of the ongoing conflict also constitute a particularly vulnerable group and their protection remains a concern.
