The Libyan Center for Freedom of Press revealed on Sunday that assaults on journalists all over Libya in the first quarter of 2016 have hit soaring numbers as they increased remarkably.

According to the Libyan Center for Freedom of Press, there have been 27 assault cases on journalists by all Libyan parties, which pushed many of those journalists to stop working.

The Documentation Bureau Coordinator, Reem Saad, said that the assaults are growing more and more amid the political upheaval and security unrest in Libya as well as amid the attempts by some parties to influence the journalists and make them follow a certain policy by force.
