GNA urges ‘effective’ UN action to end Tripoli violence

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The proposed Government of National Accord has called on the UN to take “concrete and effective” action to protect civilians and halt fighting near the capital that has killed more than 100 people since late August.

In a statement late Friday, GNA called on the UN Support Mission in Libya to “present the Security Council with the reality of the bloody events in Libya so that it can … protect the lives and property of civilians”.

The latest casualties brought the death toll to more than 100 since clashes erupted on the capital’s southern outskirts on Aug 26, and despite a ceasefire deal reached on Sep 4, renewed fighting erupted this week.
