On 1 April 2021, gunbattles occurred between rival gangs in multiple districts in the capital Port-au-Prince, including the impoverished Bél’Air neighborhood. Suspected members of the G9 gang raided Bél’Air to reportedly attack members of other gangs who refused to switch allegiances. Residents reported hearing heavy gunfire from automatic firearms for several hours. Additional clashes also occurred in the Delmas 2 and Delmas 6 neighborhoods. The gang violence in Port-au-Prince has been ongoing since 30 March, during which at least one person has been killed and several others have been injured. Several houses in the city were set on fire during the fighting. The G9 gang has conducted three violent incursions into Bél’Air since October 2019.
