A fighting in Ras Hassan street in Tripoli, Libya’s capital, left two men killed after Iftar on Thursday. 

The spokesman for the Special Deterrence Force Ahmed Salim told local news that their security personnel interfered in the brawl and contained the situation.

Tripoli and most Libyan cities have been seeing such brawls over the last years since weapons are spread and up for grabs for every one after the breakout of February revolution in 2011.
