A member of the Crisis Committee in the Ministry of Social Affairs, Khalid Masoud, said that the number of displaced families from the areas of clashes south and south-west of the capital Tripoli was 18110 families. He pointed out that the ministry has equipped 47 centers to receive displaced families.

Masoud told Alwasat, on Monday, that about 1190 displaced families have taken shelter at housing centers in the municipalities of Tripoli and cities near the capital.

He added that the ministry has equipped 47 shelters to receive displaced families, equipped with psychological support teams and food.

The southern suburbs of Tripoli have been witnessing more than two months of violent confrontations between GNA forces and General Command forces led by Khalifa Haftar.

In addition to the large wave of displacement caused by the clashes on the outskirts of the capital, the war has killed and injured hundreds of people, according to data from the Ministry of Health in Tripoli and United Nations agencies.
