Clashes between unknown armed groups in southern Libya – Sabha – have broken out today with both sides using heavy weapons, reported local media in Libya.
 
Sources from the city told the press Thursday that the possible reason behind the unknown fighting could be revenge and personal or tribal disputes.
 
Sabha is located in southern Libya, where lack of security and government services have led to complete lawlessness.
 
Sabha went through bloody clashes in November 2016 when the tribesmen of Awlad Sulaiman and Gaddadfah clashed over the act of a monkey which took the a scarf of a girl off on the street, leaving over 17 dead and 60 injured in two weeks of fighting.
