Chad announced shutting down its border with Libya on Monday after an armed group's convoy from the southern region entered its territory.

Chadian security minister Mohammed Ali Salah said his country closed the border with Libya until a further notice.

He added that Libya's border with Chad has become a gathering point for gangs, rebels and terrorists and whoever is caught there will be treated one of them, thus announcing disarming Chdains and banning gold digging on border with Libya, according to France 24.

Chad closed its border with Libya in 2017 and after few months it partially reopened it.

Chadian army announced in February capturing 250 terrorists as a convoy of rebels entered its territory coming from Libya, adding that over 40 vehicles were destroyed and hundreds of weapons were seized.

Libya-Chad border and other borders with Niger and Sudan have no security at all and thus allow infiltrations of terrorists and armed groups.
