Derna residents protest Operation Dignity siege
Nearly every resident in the eastern city of Derna took to the street on Friday to protest the continuing siege slammed on their city by Khalifa Haftar’s Operation Dignity forces.
The protesters held slogans condemning the siege of their city and the brutal treatment of the residents by the Operation Dignity forces, who are ringing the whole entries of the city from all directions.
“We also condemn the random shelling and bombing on our city by the Khalifa Haftar forces, which so far led to the destruction of many houses and properties not to mention the killing and injuring of plenty of civilians.” One protester reported.
The protesters also called on Dignity Operation forces to release the residents they kidnapped by force from the city and from its suburbs.
Meanwhile, Khalifa Haftar Operation Dignity continues its siege on the city of Derna for more than 6 months now and disallows people from going out or back in to the city on the basis of fighting terrorism and Al-Qaeda links in the city.
