Libyan rival armed groups reach ceasefire in southern Tripoli
Bani Walid Social Council has brokered a ceasefire to halt violent clashes between rival armed groups in Tripoli after leaving over 15 people killed.
The Bani Walid Delegation met with the Tarhouna and Tripoli elders’ councils and reconciliation council’s members in Tripoli on Monday and ended up with an agreement to a ceasefire and withdrawal of all troops outside southern Tripoli.
The clashes have been ongoing since last Wednesday between the Seventh Infantry Brigade and the Tripoli Protection Force, which is affiliated with the country’s UN-backed Government of National Accord.
The deal calls for the withdrawal for 15 kilometers from current positions of the forces of both sides as well as exchanging prisoners and remains of those killed in the clashes
