The President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Peter Maurer said that civilians in Libya are suffering as a result of the war, which affected residential neighbourhoods, health facilities, and schools, according to Maurer.
Maurer explained in a statement at the end of his visit to Libya that one out of four Libyans have been affected by the conflict, which entered its ninth year.
The aggression against the capital led to the closure of 13 health facilities and 220 schools, and the disruption of health services and education, in addition to an increasing scarcity of essential supplies, according to the Red Cross official.
