Tripoli, 30 March 2015:
The Council for Research and Studies at Dar Al-Ifta has called on Sunday for the . . .[restrict]return of those displaced by fighting to Benghazi.
The group pointed out that services had all but shut down in the city for lack of personnel and therefore residents were needed to come back and perform their jobs.
The call has come after repeated pleas for help from civil society organisations within Benghazi.
In addition to the return of Benghazi residents, Dar Al-Ifta has also requested that the antigovernment based in Tripoli, respond to the needs in the East by sending both humanitarian and security personnel.
“Do not allow the forces of the ‘counter-revolution’ to dismantle the social fabric of Benghazi,” the group warned.
Meanwhile, there are no signs that clashes will stop soon, as the Libyan News Ageny (LANA) has reported that military reinforcements have arrived in Benghazi on Sunday from Ajdabiya and Brega to aid the Libyan National Army (LNA) in its war against extremists in the city.
According to a source from within the army, they received 40 armed vehicles, as well as ammunition and weapons. [/restrict]
