The Address | Benghazi – Libya
LIBYA – Overall, Libya’s infrastructure continues to deteriorate at an alarming rate. Basic services, including in health, water and electricity, are eroding. The situation of water production is particularly fragile. With nearly four wells being disabled every month, the western branch of the Man-Made River, which is the primary supplier of water to the north-west, is in imminent danger of collapse, UN SRSG, Ghassan Salame, remarked to the Security Council.
On 13 January, the forces of the Libyan National Army (LNA) entered Sabha. Whilst there were some minor incidents, the arrival of LNA forces was generally perceived as a positive and stabilizing development, Salame said.
