Security Council highlights continued terrorism in Libya

The Security Council highlighted Saturday the continued danger of terrorism in Libya and the lack of security in Marzuq which may lead to conflicts in other cities.

This came during a Saturday emergency meeting that discussed the situation in Libya and condemned the Benghazi attack that killed at least three U.N. staff.

The French delegate to the Security Council urged the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the Government of National Accord (GNA) to abide by the truce declared by the U.N. Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) on Eid al-Adha and seize the opportunity to reach a comprehensive political solution.

Meanwhile, the Belgian delegate to the Security Council called for ensuring the protection of civilians and holding the violators accountable.

Few days before the Saturday Benghazi attack outside a shopping mall and bank in al-Hawari area, the Chadian opposition groups waged war in Marzuq, killing, wounding and forcing dozens to flee their homes, a source told 218 News, describing the humanitarian situation in the city, southwestern Libya, as “catastrophic.”

The source said some neighborhoods in Marzuq have been abandoned due to the shelling with mortars and heavy artillery on buildings.
