In coordination with other humanitarian actors DTM Libya conducted a rapid assessment on 16 August 2018. The DTM rapid assessment aims to complement efforts undertaken by other organizations and did for this reason not include any protection-related data collection. On 10 August 2018, 370 Tawerghan families previously residing at Triq Al Matar Camp in Tripoli were displaced, following a forced eviction from the IDP camp by a local militia. The majority of households were displaced to other areas in Tripoli, most dispersed in urban areas in private accommodation while 65 households gathered in informal settlements at Al Jibs/Al Dawa al Islameya. The most frequently mentioned priority need was shelter, cited by 72% of families surveyed in urban areas. Furthermore, more than two thirds of surveyed households are in need of food assistance, followed by WASH, Cash and NFI needs.
