The House of Representatives (HoR) voted unanimously on Monday to add some provisions to an existing law that criminalizes interaction with the Israeli-occupying state.

Law No. (62) of 1957 forbids any Libyan national from travelling to occupied Palestine or establishing relations with natural or legal entities affiliated with the Israeli authorities.

The legislation imposed five years of prison and a fine of 10,000 Libyan dinars for those who violate its provisions.

Furthermore, the act prescribes stiffer penalties for legal persons, such as prohibiting them from occupying senior government positions or public office, denial of civil rights, and seven years of imprisonment.

The Council also addressed all state institutions to provide full support and aid to the Palestinian people in their struggle against Israeli aggression on Gaza.
