On 25 April, Muammar al-Dawi’s 55 Battalion reportedly mobilised near Bridge 27 (between Tripoli and Zawiyya) and closed part of the coastal road. Apparently, mobilisations and road closures were in response to the kidnapping of Dawi’s brother, Abdul Nasser al-Dawi. The road has since been reopened and Dawi’s kidnapped brother has been returned following tribal mediation.
