OCHA Libya | Tripoli Clashes Situation Report No.23 (10 May 2019)

 

HIGHLIGHTS

 

The international humanitarian community strongly condemns the apparent direct attack on a clearly marked ambulance on 8 May, injuring two paramedics and leaving the Director of Tripoli’s Ambulance and Emergency Medical Services in critical condition – the latest in an alarmingly high incidence of attacks on first responders and medical staff.

 

An airstrike on the night of 7-8 May injures two persons inside the Tajoura detention centre; UNHCR reiterates calls for the immediate evacuation of refugees and migrants detained in conflict areas.

 

The humanitarian impact of Tripoli clashes is felt in the south of Libya, as supplies of essential goods such as food and fuel are disrupted, exacerbating already existing scarcities.
