UN condemns violations against ceasefire in Libya

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The United Nations Special Representative’s Office for Libya has condemned the attacks on Mitiga Airport in the Libyan capital Tripoli.

In a statement via its official social networking account, the UN Office of the Special Representative condemned the anti-ceasefire violations launched on January 12 as well as attacks against Mitiga Airport, which is like a window that opens to thousands of Libyans worldwide.

The statement also said the violations were committed as the UN with three different negotiating tables tried to end the conflict in Libya and find permanent solutions to the crisis and problems of the Libyan people.

The UN statement did not share information about the attack on the capital’s airport and the perpetrators of other anti-ceasefire violations.

The militias of Khalifa Haftar, the leader of the illegitimate armed forces in eastern Libya, have been targeting Mitiga airport, the only civilian airport in the capital, for three days. Also in the aftermath of the attacks were trips to the airport, which is set for the fifth time on the target of the attack this month.
