Aodi, 14 dead, doctors forced to treat only ISIS wounded

ROME – The governments of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain and the United States on Monday said they condemn the ongoing attacks in the Libyan town of Sirte.

“The governments of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain and the United States strongly condemn the barbaric acts of terrorism that ISIS affiliates are committing in the Libyan city of Sirte,” said a news release from the Italy’s Foreign Ministry. “We are deeply worried by news that speaks of indiscriminate bombings in densely populated areas of the city and acts of violence committed in order to terrorise residents,” the news release said. “We appeal to all Libyan factions that want a united and peaceful country to unite their own forces to combat the threat posed by transnational terrorist groups that take advantage of Libya for their own objectives”.

The six governments are pleased by “the recent talks for political dialogue which took place in Geneva” and all confirm their “support to the process of dialogue guided by the Special Representative of UN Secretary General, Bernardino Leon. The terrible events that are happening in Sirte highlight once again how urgent it is that the various Libyan factions find an accord for the formation of a government of national concord that, in cooperation with the international community, can guarantee the country’s safety against violent extremist groups that seek to destabilize it”.

France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain and the United States reaffirm “once again that no military solution exists to the political conflict in Libya,” and remain “concerned for the economic and humanitarian situation that worsens day after day.

We are ready to sustain the putting into practice of this political agreement, so that the government of national concord and all the new national institutions can work efficiently and meet the most urgent needs of the Libyan people”.

ROME – The toll of dead and wounded civilians in the Libyan town of Sirte continues to rise on Monday. “Since this morning, the count has risen to 14 dead and 56 wounded, according to the Libyan doctors with whom we’re in constant contact,” Foad Aodi, president of the Italian Association of Foreign Doctors (AMSI), told ANSA. “Libyan doctors are forced to treat only the wounded from ISIS and their sympathizers, so many of the wounded die from hemorrhaging and infections”. He also said there are many “bodies being picked up from homes at this time”.
