Tripoli, 21 March 2016:
The Abu Sleem unit of the Rada (“Deterrance” Forces) have claimed that today’s fighting in . . .[restrict]central Tripoli’s Bab Ben Ghashir district was the result of an attempt by a militia to take over the branch of the Jumhouriya Bank in the district. It says it has now secured the area.
It did not name the unit.
The main Rada organisation, however, has said nothing about it on its Facebook page and is not answering the phone.
Most banks in Tripoli have kept their doors closed to the public because they have no cash. There is considerable anger in the city as a result.
Bab Ben Ghashir is now quiet and roads in Tripoli now all open. [/restrict]
