Undersecretary of Education Ministry, Adel Jumaa, announced on Saturday that schools in Al Owainiya and Zawiat Al-Bagoul villages in Mashashiya district, western Libya, have been reopened after an interruption of six consecutive years due to displacement.

Through the Information Office page of the Presidential Council on Facebook, the Education Inspectorate of Mashashiya called on preserving the educational institutions by the recruitment of teachers in order to overcome the deficit in some of the school subjects and regularize their status.

Residents of Al Owainiya and Zawiat Al-Bagoul villages were displaced by Zintan in 2011. They returned back to their homes in May 2017.
