LIBYAPROSPECT – Tripoli

The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, expressed, on Saturday, his concern about the number of the violations of the ceasefire that was signed by the armed militias in Tripoli on 4 September under the supervision of the UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame.

On Friday, Guterres called on all sides of the conflict to “refrain from any actions that would increase the suffering of the civilian population.”

Guterres stressed that all those who violate the agreement are responsible for “the violation of international humanitarian law and international human rights law,” adding that they must hold responsibility.

It is worth mentioning that the Government of National Government (GNA) in Tripoli called on the UN to take a concrete and practical step to protect the civilians and end the clashes in Tripoli.
