The Tobruk municipality in the eastern Libyan region declared a humanitarian crisis in a meeting with other municipal councils’ officials in Tobruk on Monday.

The municipality said that the city is on the verge of a human disaster as water shortages continue to increase as the city’s water desalination stations has become useless and old because it needs too much renovation.

Meanwhile, protesters took to the streets in Tobruk calling on the officials and the House of Representatives to find out quick solutions to the deteriorated living conditions in the city.

The protesters warned that if the conditions are not resolved in a week time, they will shut down government institutions in the city and will ban any meetings at the HoR headquarters.
