Following shifts in the frontlines of the conflict, Libya has seen a spike in new displacements. According to the IOM Displacement Tracking Matrix approximately 27,750 individuals have been forced to leave areas in Tarhouna, Bani Walid and Sirte, mostly towards the LNA-controlled East of Libya.
A group of the most vulnerable IDPs is staying in temporary shelters, mainly schools without a support network. According to the Libyan Red Crescent Society assessment, collective centres are currently hosting 3,180 person in Ejdabia, Tobruk, Shahat, Bayda, Bani Waleed and Benghazi.
Emergency assistance (food, water and non-food items) will be provided, through the IFRC Emergency Action Plan for Libya, to the most vulnerable people.
