Algeria ‘deeply concerned’ over violence in Tripoli

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

ALGIERS – Algeria on Sunday urged Libyan disputing parties to put an end to armed confrontations, noting that such confrontations undermine any political settlement in the country.

“Algeria deeply concerned over recent developments in Libya, particularly the escalation of violence in Tripoli and its dire repercussions on its population,” Algeria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

“Algeria spares no effort as it has always done, to accompany its brotherly and neighboring country on the path of comprehensive dialogue and national reconciliation,” the statement added.

Tripoli recently witnessed violent clashes between rival militias all funded by the proposed Government of National Accord, which resulted in the killing of more than 100 people, while hundreds of others were wounded, displaced, or missing.

On the other hand, the Libyan National Army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Massmari said that LNA has nothing to do with the ongoing clashes between the militias in Tripoli, and that the army continues to fully secure all the areas under its control such as the entire region of Cyrenaica east of Libya, and large parts of the south and the Libyan west.
