Tripoli - The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is aware of erroneous reports that IOM Libya has suspended its operations.

IOM Libya has not suspended activities in Tripoli and continues its emergency operations on the ground targeting all populations affected by the conflict.

We are monitoring the security situation very closely and coordinating our responses with other UN agencies and humanitarian actors in Libya.

“We are deeply concerned about the safety of Libyans and migrants caught in the clashes,” said IOM Libya Chief of Mission Othman Belbeisi.

“Our operations continue to ensure lifesaving support is provided to displaced populations and migrants in Tripoli and across Libya.”

IOM condemns violence against all Libyan civilians and migrants and it remains our priority to provide needed humanitarian assistance to conflict-affected civilians.
