The Libyan-Parliament-designated Prime Minister, Osama Hammad inspected the reconstruction efforts in the city of Derna.

Deputy Interior Minister, Faraj Aqeim, Commander of the 166th Infantry Brigade, General Ayoub Bouseif, and Engineer Bilqasim Khalifa Haftar also accompanied Hammad.

During the visit, Hammad and his accompanying delegation were briefed on the latest developments in the reconstruction efforts, ongoing projects in the city, and the progress on the removal of debris and dilapidated buildings.

They also discussed the reopening and repair of roads and pathways, which were closed due to floods.

The Prime Minister emphasized the necessity of completing the projects as quickly as possible, while ensuring the quality of the work.

Earlier this week, Hammad issued directives to commence compensating residents of buildings at risk of collapse in the city of Ajdabiya within 24 hours.

Hammad conducted a field visit to Ajdabiya to evaluate the security and public service conditions while reviewing the progress of various service projects initiated in the city.

During the visit, the Prime Minister inaugurated various projects, including road maintenance, opening pathways, school repairs, infrastructure improvements, and the provision of water to several areas in the city.

Hammad met with the Director of Ajdabiya’s security, Major General Ahmed Al-Mismari, as well as officials from the service, security, and military sectors to discuss the city’s security situation.

He commended the efforts of the security and military units and pledged to provide the necessary resources and support for these units.

The committee established by the Parliament-designated government and the General Command of the Libyan National Army (LNA) has begun the disbursement of financial compensation, to the residents of Derna.

On 10 September, a devastating storm swept through several eastern regions of Libya, notably the cities of Derna, Benghazi, Al-Bayda, Al-Marj, and Sousse. This resulted in significant destruction, and led to the loss of thousands of lives, injuries, and missing individuals.
