Libya holds Ramadan Iftar for over 1300 illegal immigrants in Tripoli
The Libyan anti-immigration authority held Wednesday a Ramadan Iftar for nearly 1,300 illegal immigrants inside a reception center in the capital Tripoli.
The Iftar (breakfast), an evening meal where Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset, was also attended by the head of the authority, Mohamed Beshr, as well as a number of diplomats to Libya.
“This Iftar feast was intended to create a home atmosphere for the inmates, and to spread love and brotherhood during this holly month. The event also provides opportunity for the diplomats to interact with the immigrants of their respective countries,” Beshr said in a statement.
“All the immigrants, Muslims and non-Muslims, were invited to the feast, and more reception centers will host similar feasts,” He added.
