The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has called for the release of all arbitrarily detained individuals in the Bouhadi area of Sirte, stressing the imperative to conduct any security operations in full respect of the rights and freedoms of the population.

UNSMIL is following closely reports of restrictions on freedom of movement of civilians as part of security operations in Qasr Bouhadi, near Sirte, the UNSMIL tweeted.

The Mission said that it had received worrying reports that these restrictions are preventing access by civilians to hospitals, schools, shops, and other essential facilities, calling for the restoration of freedom of movement by civilians so that they can access essential services.
