The Libyan Center for Mine Action (LibMAC) celebrated on April 04 the International Day for Mine Awareness in Janzur. 

The event was organized under exceptional circumstances with limited resources and remote support from the International community and the Arms and Ammunition Advisory Section (AAAS) of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) and the United Nations Mine Actions Service (UNMAS) due to the prevailing security conditions in the country. 

The event focused on raising the awareness of children on the dangers posed by mines and Explosive Remnants of War (ERW), taking into account the ongoing-armed conflict. 

Libyan Boy Scouts marched through the streets of Janzour, carrying banners and waving Libyan flags before joining the gathering that was planned to mark the day.
