Kufra Municipality spokesman Abdullah Suleiman has expressed his fears about the infiltration of immigrants of other nationalities, or those who fled prisons after the Sudan war, as refugees entered the city.

Suleiman said in a press statement that the Sudanese resorting to Kufra constitutes a security burden, especially since their numbers have not been accurately counted until now.

Suleiman added that the number of those who entered Kufra could be tens of thousands, noting that the city is not the only crossing for refugees, as they enter Tobruk via Egypt and from Chad to Sabha, expecting their number to reach 400,000 refugees.

The municipality spokesman explained that the aid is sufficient to cover the refugees’ needs for food and clothing, but the health situation in the city remains a concern due to its lack of infrastructure and its inability to accommodate this number, in the event of an outbreak of diseases in the city.

Early this month, the people of the city launched a civil campaign aimed at providing assistance to those displaced from Sudan, including meals and blankets.
