UN Condemns Terrorist Attack in Libya


On Monday, the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) condemned the Islamic State (IS) claimed terrorist attack in Sebha. The suicide bombing killed a number of military officers and injured others, according to local authorities.

In a statement, UNSMIL Head, Jan Kubis expressed his deepest condolences to the families of the victims, and wished a speedy recovery to the injured.

“This is a strong reminder that the high mobility of dangerous elements and terrorists only enhances risks of furthering instability and insecurity in Libya and the region,” said Kubis.

“We reiterate our calls for the urgent need to start a process to unify the military and security institutions in Libya, in order to enhance the borders’ security and address the threat of terrorism and criminal activities.”

Notably, IS media reported that one of its members, Mohamed El-Muhajer stormed a checkpoint with an explosives-laden car.
