The Libya Revolutionaries Operations Room (LROR) was established by the Libyan General National Congress (GNC) in 2013 and is an umbrella group of primarily Islamist militias that is deployed to provide law and order functions. Following the kidnapping of the former Prime Minister A Zeidan by LROR militias, they were relieved from the task of protecting Tripoli. Nuri Abu-Sahmayn, who created the LROR as GNC chairman, was also dismissed. The LROR returned to Tripoli on 12 November 2013 to provide law and order functions, but would report to the General Chief of Staff. The LROR is involved in similar operations in Benghazi. During 2013, the GNC established a “Joint Security Chamber” to coordinate and strengthen efforts of Benghazi’s security institutions, but the Chamber defers much of the law and order functions to militias that comprise the Benghazi branch of the LROR.Centre of OperationsThe LROR is deployed in Benghazi and Tripoli.

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions. Please write [email protected] or hit the "SUBMIT ADDITIONS" button on the page of the group profile about which you wish to comment.
