The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – Residents and civil society organizations of Greater Tripoli issued a statement on Saturday denouncing the ongoing fighting in their city despite a ceasefire agreement signed in the city of al-Zawiya under the auspices of the UN.
The participants identified several points confined to the following demands:
1. Immediately cease armed clashes between all parties and abide by the provisions of the agreement in the city of al-Zawiya and consider all military actions war crimes punishable by international law and rejected by local and international customs and laws.
2. We condemn the work of the fraud in Greater Tripoli, which accompanied the attack on the capital, and we call on the Security Directorate to play its role.
