Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohamed Siyala has told the UN Security Council that while the world is fighting the coronavirus epidemic, residential neighbourhoods in Tripoli are under fire, the last of which was the Old City of Tripoli.

"Haftar's continued bombing has crossed all lines," Siyala stressed in a letter addressed to the UN Security Council.

He pointed out that the bombing exposes the cultural heritage and historical buildings in Tripoli to the danger of destruction, calling on the Security Council to assume its responsibilities to deter and condemn the aggression against Tripoli.
