Tawergha News Items Database

In 2011, the village of Tawergha was raided by rebels and militiamen from Misrata who humiliated, imprisoned and brutaly tortured 1300 men, many of whom were massacred as they needed black scapegoats for the crimes committed by the regime of Gaddafi during his attempt to end their revolt.

The town of Tawergha was ethnically cleansed and the 40,000 inhabitants were violently evicted. Their houses and shops were looted and set on fire and the infrastructure and community buildings destroyed.

Even today in the refugee camps the population of Tawergha are easy targets and fair game. The rebels and militia members have no problem with entering the camps while randomly shooting people without sparing the lives of women and children or the elderly and then abduct boys and men for torture.
