The Head of the Social Council of Wershiffana tribes Al-Mabrouk Bu Emid has said that the field and humanitarian conditions are very intricate and delicate, adding that the bodies of the fighters are thrown on the roads. 

Bu Emid added in a phone call with Alnabaa TV Channel on Wednesday that Brigade 301 Infantry fighters are approaching Aziziya district with the Tripoli Revolutionaries Brigade fighters, saying there are clashes taking place between them and Wershiffana brigades since the early morning. 

“A delegate from Wershiffana went to Sooq Al-Khamis on Wednesday to meet with a delegate from Zintan as part of a gathering, however; it could be of little significance as Tripoli, Misrata and Al-Zawiya as well as Tarhouna brigades have already joined in the fighting alongside Zintan Military Council, which of course complicated the issue.” Bu Emid explained. 

Wershiffana has been plunged into clashes since last Wednesday between forces led by the commander of the military zone in western Libya Osama Juwili, who is appointed by the Presidential Council of the UN-brokered government.
