Relatives of Libyans detained in Saudi Arabia block fuel pipelines in Al-Zawiya
The relatives of the Libyan nationals who are detained by Saudi Arabian authorities have blocked the pipelines of cars and aircraft fuel that lie between Al-Zawiya oil refinery and Tripoli in protest of the silence and negligence of the Government of National Accord (GNA) toward their case.
Saudi Arabian authorities detained in late June two Libyan military officials from western Libya – Al-Zawiya city.
The two officials are police captain, Mahmoud Ben Rajab, and the central security brigade of Al-Zawiya, Mohammed Hussein.
The GNA in Tripoli urged Saudi Arabia also in late June to investigate and explain the arrest of two Libyan nationals at Jeddah airport.
In a press statement, the Libyan foreign ministry said that it was continuing to follow up the arrest of two Libyan nationals at Jeddah airport in Saudi Arabia on their way back home after performing Umrah rituals.
