Tripoli armed groups agree to leave the capital after a decade-long control, according to Libya’s interior minister, Imad Trabelsi.

Following negotiations, regular forces will now police the city, with only emergency police, city officers, and criminal investigators remaining.

The move aims to address recent deadly clashes in the city and the longstanding security vacuum since Muammar Gaddafi’s overthrow in 2011.

The agreement signals a significant step towards stability in Libya, with plans for other cities to follow suit.

The departure of armed groups, including heavily armed militias, will end their visible presence and checkpoints on roads, reducing the risk of further violence.

This development underscores the ongoing efforts to establish a unified government presence and restore security across the country.
