A member of Derna People’s Gathering, Huwaidi Al-Qaziri, said that the city's western border at Karsa road is currently open, but Dignity Operation militias are continuing to close the border from time to time.

In a press statement, Al-Qaziri accused the Presidential Council of not giving any attention to the crisis in Derna, adding that the Council can - if it has the will - to communicate with international organizations to enter basic materials through the city's port.

He said that the humanitarian situation in the city had grown worse as a result of the siege.

Earlier, Chief of Derna Security, Yahya Osta Omar, confirmed the reopening of the road between Derna and Athrun town in both directions.
