Reports of ongoing clashes in Murzuq have been confirmed by local sources between Al-Ahali and Tabu tribes.

The mass of the armed clashes has centred in Bandalwah and Magariaf neighbourhoods, according to the source, confirming that rocket shells have landed in these areas.

The source added that Al-Ahali still refuse to give access to the so-called Khalid Ibn Al-Walid battalion and the joint security room of Murzuq, which are considered partisans of the Tabu tribe.

Armed clashes have continued in the city with heavy and medium weapons throughout the Eid days, without regard to the truce called for by the United Nations mission.
