Aug 18, 2021 | International actors

On 18 August, following military activity in Al-Shwayrif, the UN Support Mission for Libya (UNSMIL), called on Libyan parties ‘to refrain from any mobilization or deployment of security elements and troops that may be perceived as an escalation and may undermine the implementation of the 23 October 2020 ceasefire agreement’. The Mission urged all parties to respect the demarcation agreed in signing of the ceasefire in order to create a ‘peaceful and conductive environment’ for the holding of elections on 24 December 2021.
