Sarraj urges GNA to provide basic needs for Tripolitans amid clashes

Prime Minister Faiez al-Sarraj reviewed on Sunday the consequences of the unrest in Tripoli and the actions that should be taken to supply hospitals with basic needs and aid displaced people.

In a meeting with ministries and officials of the Government of National Accord (GNA), Sarraj urged that food, medical supplies, fuel, and basic services, including electricity and telecommunications, should be provided to Tripolitans.

Since the beginning of the fighting on April 4, the capital has lost access to power, as the forces have been hitting key overhead power cable alongside the lack of basic human needs, such as clean water, nutrition, health care, education, and shelter due to the shelling.

The ongoing clashes have killed more than 440 people and displaced nearly 60,000, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

The UN Security Council called Friday on warring Libyan parties to recommit to political talks and agree to a ceasefire after more than a month-long offensive on the capital.
