 Libyan air strikes continue to cause casualties, and the United Nations will provide assistance to 340000 people


Since 24 December 2019, at least seven civilians have been reported killed and more than 25 injured in air strikes, according to the report. In the last two weeks, more than 1500 people have been reported displaced in and around Tripoli.

The United Nations and its humanitarian partners are providing assistance to these people, including food, non food and medical supplies. Some 3500 people have access to food and non food items, and more than 2500 will receive assistance in the coming days.

The United Nations says 11 health facilities have access to medical supplies, including trauma supplies and surgical kits, in response to the growing demand for treatment as a result of hostilities.

In addition, since the beginning of the conflict in April 2019, the United Nations and its humanitarian partners have provided assistance to more than 226000 people in Libya. In 2020, the Libyan humanitarian response plan will seek US $115 million to help 342000 people in need.

After the fall of Gaddafi regime in 2011, the political situation in Libya continued to be turbulent. Since the beginning of April 2019, the armed Libyan national army in eastern Libya has been close to the capital Tripoli, and has been engaged in fierce war with the government of national unity army recognized by the United Nations, which makes Libya fall into a greater political and humanitarian crisis.
