Algeria has decided to grant new humanitarian assistance to Libya to residents of border areas.

The Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated on Tuesday that the aid to the people of the border areas is an extension of the ongoing solidarity work by Algeria towards Libya in order to help the population meet some of their urgent basic needs.

Algeria has provided 30 tons of humanitarian aid to the residents of Libya along the border with Algeria, according to a statement issued by the Algerian Foreign Ministry in February 2017.
