Violations of International Humanitarian Law remain of grave concern as indiscriminate attacks against civilians and medical facilities and personnel continue
Protecting people affected by the conflict to safer areas and negotiating a humanitarian truce remain priorities
Aid workers continue to call for safe and unrestricted humanitarian access and for humanitarian corridors to allow civilians trapped in conflict areas to move to safety
A further escalation of violence in and around Tripoli led to an upsurge in displacement, with 1,675 new displacements reported over the last 24 hours. This brings the current total of IDPs to 4,500, and numbers are expected increase further, should violence prevail.
Heavy armed clashes and artillery shelling on residential areas in Ain Zara and Khalla alForjan have translated into an upsurge in displacement numbers in and around Tripoli, which doubled over the past 48 hours to just over 6,000 individuals.
Due to ongoing conflict, access restrictions and indiscriminate targeting of first responders, only 58 out of 580 families who registered for evacuations from areas particularly affected by hostilities could be brought to comparatively safer places to date.
The escalation of fighting in Derna has reached unprecedented levels, due to the use of air raids and shelling, some of which are in residential areas, and heavy ground clashes.
At least five civilians have died since 22 May, including two children, and 11 have been injured, including four children, as a result of the increased hostilities.
