The LCW stated that the man and his family had been taken from their home after pro-Haftar militias attacked the hose in Benghazi before releasing the man’s children and wife.

They added that the man is being kept in a prison in Benghazi under the control of Haftar’s militias.

the LCW called on the recently confirmed government of national unity to take the necessary procedures to put an end to the lawless actions of these militias operating outside of the law without consequences.

According to experts and analysts, Benghazi is experiencing security deterioration and abuses by pro-Haftar elements due to the recent change of power in the country and the appointment of the new government.
