Libya’s Interior Ministry completed on Saturday the preparation of a joint security and military plan to secure the capital Tripoli, a few days after the deadly Islamic State (IS) suicide attack on the Libyan Higher Commission of Elections.

According to a statement issued by the ministry, the announcement of the plan came after a broad meeting of senior military and security officials, including Libyan interior minister and the military chief of staff.

The meeting also focused on the security arrangements, mainly a unified security plan between all the military and security services aimed at securing the city of Tripoli and its outskirts, the statement said.
