UN worries about “change” in Libya

The United Nations support mission in Libya issued a statement on the 29th, saying that the situation in Libya has “dramatically changed” recently, and Libya urgently needs to return to the political process in an all-round way. < / P > < p > some Libyans recently marched in the capital Tripoli to protest against the political unrest and livelihood issues in Libya. During the demonstration, armed men opened fire on the demonstrators. The Prime Minister of Libya’s national unity government, Fayyad salaj, and the interior minister, FASI bashaja, initially denounced the presence of “illegal infiltrators” in the demonstrations. Salaj said the demonstration was “rioting” without the necessary permission. However, bashaja later accused the militia associated with the government of national unity for attacking the demonstrators. Salajie suspended bashaja’s duties on the 28th, demanding an investigation into whether he was “negligent” in protecting the protestors. Bashaja responded that he accepted the prime minister’s decision, but hoped for an open investigation. < / P > < p > in addition, the mission also expressed concern about the “continuing human rights violations” in the central city of Sirte, claiming that at least one civilian was killed and many were arrested. Sirte is now under the control of the armed “national army” in eastern Libya. After the fall of Gaddafi’s regime in 2011, the two major forces in Libya were separated and confronted. The government of national unity and the armed forces supporting it control the western regions such as Tripoli; the National Congress allied with the “national army” to control the eastern and central regions, the main cities in the South and some western cities. Since April last year, the “national army” has launched military operations against Tripoli and engaged with the army of the national unity government. The two sides are now facing each other in Sirte. Micro special manuscript
