Libya: 2.4 million people need humanitarian aid (UN)

“The fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 plunged Libya into the chaos of rival militias battle for control of the country, indulging wars cannot thank you”.

The United Nations has made the case of Libya on the occasion of the World Day of humanitarian aid, claiming that millions of Libyans and migrants were victims of a worsening humanitarian crisis of the day.

“More than 2.4 million people in Libya in need of humanitarian assistance”, according to Martin Kobler, the UN envoy for Libya, in a statement on Friday.

“They lack medicines, vaccines, and are faced with precarious hospital services. Nearly 300,000 children are out of school and almost 350,000 Libyans have been displaced across the country”, he added (…)

The fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 plunged Libya into the chaos of rival militias fighting for control of the country, delivering power to wars without thank you.

Fighting has recently concentrated around the city of Sirte, where the forces of Libyan unity government (GNA, supported by the UN) lead from the May assault against the troops of the terrorist group Daesh (IS).
