UNHCR teams visit the city of Tawergha

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TAWERGHA – Teams of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and other UN agencies visited on Thursday the city of Tawergha.

According to a tweet by UNCHR, the teams met with Head of Tawergha Municipality, Abdulrahman Shikshak, and discussed with him plans for “the upcoming winter campaign and assessed the needs of the returnee population regarding access to water, electricity, health care and education.”

Virtually the entire population of the town was forced to leave after its takeover by forces from Misurata in 2011. A number of refugee camps crowded with Tawergha’s former residents were subjected to raids and arbitrary arrests by militias ever since.
