Libya – Attacks for which Daesh has claimed responsibility (February 23, 2015)


France condemns the attack on February 20 in Qubbah which killed 46 people. We extend our condolences to the victims’ families and our support to all Libyans at this difficult time.

This heinous crime, as well as the attacks in Tripoli yesterday which notably targeted the Iranian ambassador’s residence, reflect the seriousness of the situation in Libya.

There’s an urgent need to find a political solution within the framework of the dialogue launched by the UN: Only a national unity government will be able to effectively combat the terrorist groups. We therefore call on all parties in Libya to ensure the success of the ongoing dialogue. We also call on the entire international community to support the mediation efforts led by Bernardino Leon.
