The Mayor of Tobruk Municipality, Faraj Bu Al-Khattabiya, has stated that they began an open strike since last Wednesday, due to the repeated attacks of citizens on some projects and garden plans, which caused it to be stopped.

Bu Al-Khattabiya said that they monitored about seven attacks by citizens on lands they claimed belonged to them, while the documents prove that they belong to the Libyan state.

He also affirmed the continued suspension of work in the municipality until the security and military authorities intervene to stop the attacks, saying that the presence of the municipal council has no meaning unless its decisions are not implemented.
