Guterres warns of “deteriorating” humanitarian situation in Libya

Antonio Guthrie’s, the UN Secretary General, has warned of “deteriorating” humanitarian situation in Libya.

“I am very concerned about the serious and deteriorating humanitarian situation in Libya.” Guterres tweeted today.

“An estimated 1.3 million people need assistance, an increase of 400,000 since last year. I urge countries to support our Humanitarian Response Plan to help the most vulnerable.” He added.

Libya has been experiencing difficult humanitarian and economic conditions since the fall of the Gaddafi regime in 2011, and the country’s entry into civil wars and a struggle for power and resources.
