EU bans Libyan air ambulance from entering its airspace for treatment of counter-ISIS fighters

1336

The EU Aviation Authorities issued a ban on Libyan air ambulance disallowing any attempted transfer of wounded fighter to Europe for treatment after a growing number of injuries due to clashes with ISIS in Sirte.

The prejudiced decision of the EU left the Libyan fighters stranded while in a pressing need for treatment as most of them fell wounded due to the ongoing clashes against the ISIS terrorists in Sirte.

Meanwhile, reports say that the Libyan wounded fighters from Misurata forces of Albunyan Almarsous were being directed to Algeria instead for treatment.
