On 4 April, the Special Deterrence Force (Rada) held an Iftar in Mitiga to commemorate the repulsion of the Libyan National Army’s (LNA) attack on Tripoli launched on 4 April 2020. Many militia leaders from Tripoli, Zawiyya and Zintan reportedly attended and agreed to unite ranks, and fight corruption and injustice.

On the same day, clashes broke out between rival armed groups in the al-Fassi area of Zawiyya, resulting in a child being killed in his home after being hit by stray bullets.
