Armed individuals hijacked a tanker truck transporting gasoline to Delmas then set fire to another this Tuesday, June 4, 2024, a resident of the area confirmed for the Loop Haiti editorial staff.

According to our contact, the first incident took place in Delmas 3. Bandits stormed a tanker truck, forcing the driver to deviate from his initial route to head towards Delmas 18. Under threat, the driver had no choice but to comply with the demands of the criminals.

A second truck, traveling near the airport crossroads, was the target of projectiles. According to our source’s testimony, the situation degenerated when police officers, in an armored vehicle, intervened to prevent a new vehicle capture.

Remember that since the end of February, armed gangs have taken control of several neighborhoods in the capital, Port-au-Prince. The criminals burned down houses and exchanged fire with police for hours. Terrified by these scenes of violence, thousands of people were forced to leave their homes in several neighborhoods.

More than 310,000 people were internally displaced in the country as of December 2023, according to data communicated by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). More than half of the people currently displaced in the country were displaced in 2023, according to the latest assessment of internal displacement in Haiti carried out by the organization which maintains that these data illustrate the constant worsening of the security and humanitarian situation , particularly in the capital Port-au-Prince.
