Afrasianet - Libyan media reported that violent armed clashes erupted between rival militias in the west of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, and resulted in deaths and injuries.

Local sources stated that the confrontations erupted in the Al-Shurafa area in the city of Al-Zawiya between armed militias, one of which is called the "Constitution Support Force", which is loyal to the outgoing Prime Minister, Abdel Hamid Al-Dabaiba. Pictures circulating from Libya, a few days ago, showed clashes between armed groups on the airport road in Tripoli. Celebrations of Belhaj's arrival The return of the leader of the "Libyan Fighting Group" Abdel Hakim Belhaj to Libya, after an absence of 5 years he spent between Turkey and Qatar, has raised widespread controversy and questions about the role he can play in this critical stage in the country, on the impact of political and institutional division and mutual accusations and threats between competing camps.

Belhaj arrived in the capital, Tripoli, from Doha, and was received by a number of his supporters, relatives and comrades in the Libyan Fighting Group, as he appeared while he was in the protection of armed men. Upon his arrival, Belhaj called, in a statement, for dialogue and support for the peaceful path out of the current crisis, and said that he would continue to hold meetings with all actors in the Libyan cause "away from any political interests related to power-sharing, or threatening the unity of Libyans", which is an announcement of an expected return to these.

The dialectical character of the scene and political activism. Pashaga among his forces Armed militias failed to bring the Prime Minister-designate from Parliament, Fathi Bashagha, to the capital, Tripoli, through the land border crossings with Tunisia, after other militias rejected this plan and confronted it. And in details. A huge military force affiliated to the western military region, led by Osama al-Juwaili, turned to the "Dhiba-Wazen" border crossing with Tunisia to receive Bashagha and arrange and secure his entry to the capital, Tripoli, but the armed militias affiliated with the city of Nalut realized this plan and closed the "Takout" crossing leading to the gate On the border with Tunisia, the forces loyal to Bashagha prevented passage and expelled them, which prompted them to withdraw and return.

Al-Hajam stressed his rejection of anyone who wants to involve them in interests and struggles for power and not to allow any party to destabilize security, noting that what the military force is doing in the western region is "rejected", calling for the need to keep it away from conflicts and political quarrels and pay attention only to military matters, considering that ""

The solution is to hold parliamentary and presidential elections to end the outlawed bodies that dominate power today.” Also, huge convoys of armed militias loyal to the outgoing prime minister, Abdel Hamid al-Dabaiba, moved simultaneously from several different cities in the Libyan west towards the capital, Tripoli, while Tripoli militias declared a state of general mobilization and closed several roads with earth mounds, in order to prevent the advance of militias loyal to Bashaga and their entry to the area.

Capital. Meanwhile, a number of militia leaders and princes in the city of Misurata and the capital, Tripoli, called, in a statement, the heads of the two rival governments, to maintain the conflict politically, and to spare the capital Tripoli and the western region any military conflict, in order to reach power, and asked all security parties to remain neutral and not be drawn into Behind any call that leads to destabilization.

There is fear, inside and outside Libya, that fighting will erupt between militias supporting Dabaiba, who refuses to give up power before elections, and those loyal to Bashagha, who is looking to enter Tripoli to carry out his duties, in case the latter tries to force him into the capital in order to seize power.
