Libyan media outlets reported renewed clashes between militias affiliated with the outgoing Government of National Accord (GNA) in the Tajoura region, east of the capital, Tripoli.

There were contradictory accounts about what was really going on. Sources reported that clashes took place with heavy weapons between a battalion called the "Lions of Tajoura" and another called the "92nd Infantry Battalion." Some attributed the shooting in the area to a ceremonial appearance!

Regarding the story that talks about real clashes between two competing groups east of the capital, Tripoli, activists on social media reported that yesterday's drones were reported to be Turkish in the sky of the region.

Military equipment and tanks were also seen wandering around the streets of Tripoli for the first time, while the Tajoura area witnessed mutual military build-ups amid the closure of the city's main streets.

The Tripoli Protection Force, a security formation in the capital, had strongly condemned the "kidnapping of (notables of Tajoura), which took place this morning in the region, which caused the road to be closed and security disturbed."

On Wednesday, the Libyan Prime Minister-designate of the Government of National Unity (GNU) Abdulhamid Al-Dabaiba won the Parliament’s vote of confidence with the majority of 132 votes.

The Speaker of Parliament, Counselor Aguila Saleh, during the session, urged the Prime Minister to adhere to the road map set by the members of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) and pave the way for general elections as scheduled on December 24, 2021.
