Number of displaced civilians from Tripoli's war hits 199,925 people
[Libya Observer] The internally displaced civilian count in Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
since the beginning of the war has risen to 199,925 people, the United Nations
...where theory meets practice and practice loses...
High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) confirmed Sunday.

Most of those displaced are residing shelters, while others are staying with relatives, the UNHCR explained, adding that it had provided humanitarian assistance to around 10,500 displaced people.

The corpse count from Haftar's attack on Tripoli reached 1,048, more than 100 of them civilians, while the number of maimed reached 5,558, among them 290 civilians, according to the latest statistics of the World Health Organization.

#1 The number of causalities is well within certain "expectations" regarding this type of Muslim warfare, and the civilian numbers are low.

The humanitarian assistance rate (9% of those displaced) needs some work but overall a welcome story.

A couple of Russian client states that sponsored terror attacks against the West for decades are now in the midst of low-level civil wars? I can't say I'm particularly saddened. At the languid pace these wars are playing out, they could do this for another 50 years. At least they'll be occupied doing something other than sponsoring terror attacks against the West.
