Libya has expressed its strong condemnation and denunciation of the targeting of civilians in the northern Gaza Strip, which resulted in the death of dozens and the injury of hundreds.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of National Unity held the international community fully responsible, and called on to take all urgent measures to protect civilians against criminal violations in the Gaza Strip, with the necessity of an immediate ceasefire.

The statement renewed the firm and supportive position of the State of Libya towards the Palestinian people until they regain all their legitimate rights that enable them to establish their independent state.
