The UN encouraged all parties involved to stop violent attacks and to allow humanitarian aid access to populations in need.
UN’s claim comes days after two of the most active armed gangs clashed each other for controlling over the southern entry to the capital since June 1, forcing over 2,500 people to leave their houses and take refuge in squares, churches and public sports centers.
The situation got worse this weekend as other armed gangs at the northern exit of Port-au-Prince, took the main access roads, seized a police station, and bereaved some citizens of their belongings, while patrolling vehicles passage.
On Monday, several areas of Port-au-Prince dawned under tension due to alleged actions by armed groups trying to mug businesses down the road to airport, while shootings were heard in low-lying areas of Delmas commune and Gonaïves station.
In a video livestreaming on social networks, customers of a bank can be seen trying to protect themselves from shootings outside the bank.
