DTM Libya – Tripoli Flash Update #20 (27 June 2019)

Since the last update of the IOM Libya Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) on 11 June, the security situation in conflict-affected areas in south Tripoli reportedly remained volatile. DTM identified an additional 2,190 displaced families (approximately 10,950 individuals) since the previous report, bringing the total number of internally displaced persons to at least 20,975 families (approximately 104,875 individuals) who have been forced to leave their homes due to armed conflict since the start of hostilities on 04 April 2019.

Furthermore, over 3,760 migrants remain in detention centers in Tripoli and nearby areas and are also considered to be at high risk of being affected by the conflict.

The majority of displaced households were identified in different neighborhoods of Tripoli, the Nafusa mountains and various locations along the coastal line of Western Libya. IDP families displaced to locations close to areas of conflict remain at risk, along with host community members providing them with shelter.

DTM conducted a rapid profiling exercise of displaced families, covering over 6,000 IDPs. A slight majority of sampled IDPs were female (51%), while almost half of the surveyed population were children under the age of 18 (48%).
