Summary

Since the last update of IOM Libya’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) on 11 August 2019, the security situation in Murzuq reportedly remained volatile. DTM identified an additional 525 internally displaced families (approximately 2,625 individuals) since the previous report, bringing the total number of internally displaced persons from Murzuq to at least 1,285 families (approximately 6,425 individuals) who have been forced to leave their homes due to armed conflict since the beginning of August. Furthermore, around 270 migrants from Niger, Chad and Nigeria were reportedly also displaced from Murzuq.
