Tripoli, 22 September 2015:
Fighting in the centre of Zawia between rival factions has this afternoon left at least . . .[restrict]six people and over 18 wounded according to local residents. They said that one of the two factions supported the General National Congress, the other the House of Representatives. The latter, they alleged, had launched a revenge attack following the withdrawal of the last three Misratan brigades based west of Tripoli.
Civilians are said to have been caught up in the missile attacks between both sides.
The clashes were not unexpected. There were predictions yesterday that there would be fighting in the area because of the Misratan pullout and, last week, the Zintanis said that they would not get involved in any clashes along the coast. [/restrict]
