The Interior Minister, Fathi Bashagha, and Defense Minister, Salah Al-Namroush, instructed security forces to respond to any violations in Tarhouna, sending a force from law enforcement apparatus in Tripoli Sunday to support the Tarhouna's security operations administration and security directorate in maintaining law and order. 

The Defense Minister, however; ordered forces located in Tarhouna to contain the violations and arrest anyone who would violate the law, condemning revenge cases in the city and promising to bring those who commit vendetta crimes to justice.

Al-Namroush referred to arrest orders of the Military Prosecutor against over 3000 members of the Tarhouna-based 9th Brigade and those involved in mass graves' crimes, calling for swift justice for the families of the victims.

Meanwhile, a number of victims' relatives attacked Friday, after a funeral for some of the identified bodies from Tarhouna mass graves, some of Al-Kani family' houses and burned some of their properties, leaving a trend of discontent among Libyans toward the vendetta approach outside the law.
