Libya continues the closure of Ras Ajdair border for third day


Libya has closed Ras Ajdair border with Tunisia on Thursday in protest of the attacks on Libyans traveling to Tunisia by Ben Gardane residents from the Tunisian side.

Media spokesman at the border’s checkpoint, Hafith Muamar, said that the bad treatment that Libyans are receiving from Tunisians is the main reason for the closure of the border.

Muamar added that the shutdown will continue until Libyan and Tunisian authorities find radical solutions to the bad treatment and provide road safety for the Libyan travelers entering Tunisia.
