Fezzan is a region of the former Libya north of the Murzuq desert. Originally the lower left third of the nation, the area has shrunk to be defined as the surviving oases in the midst of the desert south of Cyrenaica. The area was home to many larger towns that saw much destruction with the fall of the Libyan government. No survey of the area has been done to determine the population, but most authorities assume that it is probably no larger than five per cent of its known population in 1983 of over 200,000.
