A house collapsed in the area of Balkhair in central Tripoli without causing any human casualties, according to eyewitnesses.

The building collapse caused damage to some cars parked nearby, as well as other forms of material loss, according to the same sources.

Such incidents have occurred in the same area significantly, in recent years, due to the decrepit state of homes in Balkhair area, which have been built for some time now.

For his part, the Mayor of Central Tripoli, Abdul Raouf Beit Al-Mal, said that the municipality does not have the means to maintain these old buildings, noting that most of these houses are not accommodated.
