As of 14 July 2022, a week-long uptick in gang-related violence continues to affect the Cite Soleil suburb of the capital Port-au-Prince. Gunbattles between rival groups engaged in turf wars have left at least 89 people dead and more than 75 others wounded. While some of the victims were directly involved in the fighting, many were collaterally affected, as bullets went through house walls and struck individuals who were sheltering in place. Gang members have also crippled transportation by blocking off access to the Varreaux fuel terminal, which processes more than 70% of Haiti’s fuel supply. In a related development, the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince issued on 13 July a Security Alert warning of multiple flaming barricades erected throughout Port-au-Prince, including on segments of Airport Road.
