Head of the Government of the National Accord (GNA) Faiez al-Sarraj discussed Monday with Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha the security measures taken to protect the public during Eid Al-Fitr.
Sarraj and Bashagha reviewed the security situation in Tripoli and the plan set to prevent any violations during the feast’s celebrations.
Eid Al Fitr, falling on June 5 this year, comes during the clashes between Khalifa Haftar, head of Libyan National Army (LNA), and his rival in the western region, Sarraj.
The clashes have led to the re-emergence of terrorists in some parts of Libya and affected security in the western region as high-profile terrorists were revealed to be participating in the ongoing clashes in the capital.
The names includes Mohamed bin Dardaf, who is accused of storming the United states embassy in 2012 and killing ambassador Christopher Stevens.
Dardaf died in an armored vehicle hit by a missile on the road to Tripoli International Airport last week, according to militants on social media.
