Libya’s Al-Sarraj, UN envoy discuss latest developments

ALGIERS, The latest developments in Libya were discussed between Chairman of the Presidential Council of the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) Fayez Al-Sarraj, and UN special representative for Libya Ghassan Salame and his deputy Ambassador Stephanie Williams.

During the meeting, the two sides also dealt with the UN efforts aiming to halt the ongoing attacks, media reports said on Saturday.

The forces loyal to Khalifa Haftar, Libyan National Army (LNA) commander, continue carrying out randomly air strikes at houses and infrastructure as well as a school, Al-Sarraj’s media office quoted him as saying. Al-Sarraj informed Salame about human rights violations committed by Haftar’s forces, referring to the recruitment of children to fight beside the latter’s ranks.

Meanwhile, Salame stressed his rejection of any attacks on civilians and civil facilities, saying this poses a grave violation to the international humanitarian law.

He affirmed that the UN efforts aiming to end this war have not been stopped yet, according to the media.

Some areas near Libya’s capital, Tripoli, have been witnessing clashes since Hafar’s forces have launched attacks to control the capital, which has been in the hands of the internationally recognized GNA.
