The mission added, in a statement issued on the occasion of the one-year anniversary of the aggression on Tripoli, that the intensity of the war escalated, taking the form of a proxy war, and perhaps an endless war fueled by malicious external powers, which led to the expansion of its geographical scope, and civilians are the ones who pay the highest price.

The mission indicated that the humanitarian situation has deteriorated to levels not seen before in Libya, as about 149,000 people inside and around Tripoli have been forced to flee their homes since the beginning of the aggression, and more than 345,000 civilians are still in the clashes areas, in addition to 749,000 people estimated They live in areas affected by the clashes, and about 893,000 people are in need of humanitarian assistance, according to the mission.
