Overview of position: On the 3rd of April 2019, the Libyan National Army (LNA) initiated a military incursion into western Libya, with the objective of taking control of Tripoli.

Armed clashes have been particularly heavy in the southern districts of Tripoli, killing and wounding civilians, displacing thousands of families and critically impact access to basic services, water, and shelter.
