Benghazi, 4 August 2017:
As part of Benghazi’s normalisation, plans are in hand to reopen the Suq Al-Arab market complex between Sabri and Salmani, possibly as early as next week.
During the height of the insurgency, the market was hit on a number of occasions and forced to close.
Yesterday, the head of Benghazi’s municipal guard, which monitors traders and their businesses, met with a group of merchants and members of the Benghazi Chamber of Commerce and Industry to organise its reopening. The move follows an instruction from acting mayor of Benghazi Abdulrahman Elabbar to set up a committee to oversee its rehabilitation and return to daily use.
