Where a number of gunmen affiliated with the Government of National Unity closed the coastal road linking Al-Khums, Tripoli and Masalata with earth mounds, and many pictures showed the spread of armed phenomena on other roads and the closure of some of the main corridors in the capital. A group of media outlets also published statements of a number of military forces, some of which declared their readiness to defend the national unity government, and others confirmed their readiness to secure the entry of the Prime Minister-designate from Parliament, Fathi Bashagha.  Prime Minister Fathi Bashagha was sworn in before parliament a week ago, and said on Tuesday that he would arrive in Tripoli within two days, pledging to perform his duties as prime minister there peacefully.

A Reuters witness, just outside Tripoli on the main coastal road to Misrata, said there were military vehicles and fighters stationed on the road, but that vehicular traffic was proceeding normally and there was no indication of clashes.  US Ambassador to Libya Richard Norland said in a tweet that he spoke to Bashagha and praised efforts to "resolve the current political dispute through negotiations, not force."  The United Nations Mission in Libya has expressed concern over reports of troop mobilization and large convoy movements of armed groups that have increased tensions in and around Tripoli. In a statement, she stressed the importance of maintaining calm and stability in the country, calling on all parties to refrain from any action that could lead to armed clashes.  and urged cooperation with the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General of the United Nations on Libya in her continuing good offices; To find a negotiating way out of the current political impasse. The US ambassador and envoy to Libya called on the Libyan parties to seize the opportunity to pursue a political solution instead of risking an escalation.  Norland declared, in a tweet via Twitter on Thursday, his full support for the message of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, in which it said that it is closely following with concern reports related to the mobilization of forces and the movement of large columns of armed groups, which led to an increase in tension in and around Tripoli.

He stressed the end of the term of the former minister in the national unity government, calling on all security directorates and all security departments, agencies and sectors not to deal with the expired government of national unity, calling for the need to abide by the instructions and orders issued to them by the Ministry of Interior of the Libyan government.  The Minister of Interior in the government of Fathi Bashagha stressed the raising of the degree of readiness to secure the state's headquarters and institutions and its vital facilities, and to prevent any security breaches that affect the security of the capital and the safety of civilians.
