The sources stated that there were two crowds of protesters in the Martyrs Square, Friday evening. The two sides were raising two different slogans against each other. The sources added that one of the two crowds were in Algeria Square then moved to Martyrs Square.
It is worth mentioning that there was a demonstration, on Friday, in Tripoli carrying banners demanding the armed formations to leave Tripoli. They also called for activating the role of the army and police to secure the capital city.
