Misurata Municipality slams Tripoli clashes as outlawry and criminality

The Municipality of Misurata has issued a statement denouncing in the strongest terms the violent clashes that took place in Tripoli on Friday between forces from the Salvation Government and forces from the Government of National Accord.

The statement, issued on Saturday, said those clashes were done by a group of outlaws aiming at destabilizing the country and hindering the daily lives of the residents of the capital with the coming of the holy month, Ramadan.

“We call on all the parties to go back to their senses and do all what it takes to regain peace and stability in the country.” Misurata Municipality indicated.

It also stressed that it condemns using force and military clashes for gaining political achievements at the expense of the Libyan people.

“All military presence among residential areas in the capital must retreat and get out of the areas where they can jeopardize the lives of the innocent civilians.” The statement says.

It also called on the Presidential Council to assume their responsibilities to retain peace ans stability in Tripoli and all over the country as per the Libyan Political Agreement signed in Morocco, Skhirat, in December 2015.
