The ceasefire agreement brokered by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) in September 2018 led to a decrease in hostilities in Tripoli.
However, sporadic fighting continued in parts of Libya and children fell victim to indiscriminate attacks, including during exchanges of crossfire in densely populated areas. The lack of access for monitoring actors, owing to the security situation, severely inhibited the verification of grave violations against children.
