Jan 9, 2022 | Libyan actors

Overnight on 9 – 10 January, Libyan forces under the GNU carried out a raid on a migrant camp in Tripoli, reportedly arresting hundreds of people and taking them to the Ain Zara detention centre, with reports of violence being used against migrants (including women and children). Many people were injured and some reports indicated some were killed. The migrants were part of a months-long sit-in protest in front of a now-closed UNHCR centre.
