Heavy fighting broke out in Libyan capital on Monday between rival groups under the Presidential Council’s fragile authority.

Armed groups of the 7th Brigade - a.k.a Kanyat - from Tarhuna city advanced early in the day in Khallat Furjan, Ein Zara, Wadi Rabea and Salah Eddine districts in southern Tripoli in a bid to gain more control in the region.

The 7th Brigade has been stationed in Tripoli’s southern Gasir Ben Ghashir district for more than a year by orders from the Presidential Council to protect the southern borders of Tripoli.

While advancing, the 7th brigade exchanged heavy fire with a coalition of armed brigades made up of Tripoli Revolutionaries Brigade, Misrata’s 301 Brigade, Bab Tajoura Brigade, Ghanewa Brigade and Nawasi Brigade.

The fighting has left on civilian dead and three others wounded due to indiscriminate shelling, according to initial figures released by Tripoli Security Directorate.
