The European Union and the United Nations condemned on 29 July the attack by Khalifa Haftar’s forces on a school in Tripoli.

The European Union condemned the attack in a statement, saying: “The interest of the Libyan people must be put first by de-escalating the situation and resuming dialogue in order to identify a lasting political solution to the conflict as part of the UN-led process”.

Fighting in Libya “shows no signs of abating”, the head of the United Nations Support Mission told the Security Council, reminding of the worsening humanitarian conditions, and warning that the instability and influx of foreign weapons is fueling a proxy war in the north African country.
