And Tripoli witnessed yesterday, according to local media, great tension and skirmishes between a number of citizens and the army against the background of this issue, despite the clarification of the commander of the naval force about the circumstances of the accident, as he confirmed that “the boat sank due to the overload very quickly, and had it not been for the presence of our personnel near it, the number of victims would have been Bigger. Our personnel did their duty and they saved the largest number of boat passengers.”
