On 21 September, Tripoli’s Nawasi Brigade brokered a meeting between the 444 Brigade and the Stability Support Apparatus (SSA) to resolve tensions between the two armed groups, culminating in an agreement to release prisoners taken in the clashes between the two groups in September and resolve their differences. The commanders of both groups, Mahmoud Hamza of the 444 Brigade and Abdul Ghani al-Kikli (aka Ghinaywa), of the SSA, were both in attendance. The talks were allegedly facilitated in part by Turkey. On the same day, the SSA is alleged to have attempted to gain access to the 7 April Camp. The militia camp is currently controlled and used by the 301 Battalion.
