Interior Ministry warns against “mobilizing” calls in Tripoli

The Interior Ministry of the Government of National Accord warned against what it described “a return to square one” referring to the recent calls for “mobilization” of troops and individuals in Tripoli with the aim of destabilizing the country, according to a Saturday statement by the ministry.

The statement added any attempt to harm Tripoli’s security would not be acceptable and the ministry would prevent the spread of chaos and intervention in the lives of citizens.

The ministry reassured the Libyan people that the police efforts would continue to empower the state and the rule of law.

In late December 2018, a journalist in Tunisia – the first country to face the Arab Spring – has set himself on fire, triggering a protest against unemployment and poverty in the country, bringing to the mind the very start of the 2011 revolt that spread then in several Arab countries.
Political instability in Libya after the ouster of Muammar Qaddafi’s regime has led to the spread of organized crimes including trafficking of weapons and drugs alongside illegal migration and terrorism through the lawless, vast deserts of Libya’s southern borders.
