Since the last update of IOM Libya’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in February, the security situation around Abu Qurayn, especially near al-Washkah area, reportedly remained tense as shelling and artillery fire continued to be reported in the first week of March. DTM identified an additional 372 internally displaced families (approximately 1,860 individuals), bringing the total number of internally displaced persons from Abu Qurayn and Sirt to at least 930 families (approximately 4,650 individuals) who have been forced to leave their homes due to armed conflict since the last week of January.
