UN Spox: Libya Needs Humanitarian Truce


The United Nations has stated that alleged attacks targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure, especially in the recent clashes in the cities of Sabratha and Surman, could constitute war crimes.

In a press conference held by UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric, the UN called on the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the Government of National Accord (GNA) to announce a ceasefire immediately, bring an end to all hostilities and reach a political solution to find a way out of the current crisis.

“Acts of revenge will further escalate the conflict and lead to a cycle of revenge that threatens the social fabric in Libya.”

Dujarric claimed that the situation was significantly worrisome and reiterated calls for the warring parties to implement a humanitarian truce to combat the threat of COVID-19.
