The Ministry of Education of the Tripoli-based government (GNU) has announced the suspension of studies for ten days, starting next Sunday.

The ministry said the decision comes "in solidarity with students in the storm-affected areas, east of the country."

In the same context, the Hakomitna platform also noted that Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah ordered the suspension of classes at the primary and intermediate stages throughout Libya for a period of ten days due to "the tragic circumstances", which some eastern cities are going through.

According to the same source, the Education Ministry is working to provide temporary premises and redistribute students to nearby educational institutions to ensure they enroll in classes as soon as possible.
