14 Fearing a wider uprising in the city, General Carlo Caneva, commander in chief of the expeditionary force, asked Rear Admiral Borea Ricci to land a few detachments of sailors. On the afternoon of October 23, while the panic was beginning to subside in Tripoli, the Italians recovered from their surprise and began to undertake the merciless reprisal that went on for a number of days; that reprisal would be the object of harsh condemnation from a number of foreign journalists accredited to the military command of Tripoli.

In order to break the siege of the Arabo-Turks upon Tripoli, the chief of the Italian army’s general staff, General Alberto Pollio, sent increasingly massive reinforcements to Caneva between November and December 1911. The specific breakdown was as follows: 55,000 men from all branches of the armed services, 84 pieces of field artillery, 42 mountain cannons, 28 siege cannons, 8,300 beasts of burden, 1,500 transport wagons, new squadrons of reconnaissance airplanes and bombers, and a certain number of poison gas grenades that were not used.
