#FreeGanfouda: Evacuate 133 Families from Ganfouda Libya Armed Conflict


Ganfouda, a south suburb in Benghazi, Libya, has been under siege by General Khalifa Haftar's "Operation Dignity." The UN-backed Government and Human Rights Organizations have documented from 126 to 133 civilian families who are currently being held captive in Ganfouda. The continuous attacks from sea, land and air by General Haftar and his militias have resulted in demolished homes and over 30 deaths and counting - a situation that amounts to genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The families have not been able to leave as safe passage has been denied by Haftar's forces and the Government of National Accord has been unsuccessful in evacuating the families and the United Nations Special Mission to Libya (UNSMIL) has remained silent as these crimes against humanity continue .

As you consider signing this petition lives are being lost due to medical conditions, hunger and air strikes. The families are not requesting to leave Libya as refugees, but simply to be evacuated to the capital Tripoli by sea for the safety of their children. These families have been deprived of rights that must never be denied to any human being, like the basic right of safety, clean water, food, and medication.  

Evidence has been documented of war crimes against civilians in Ganfouda. This matter is extremely time sensitive. Your support is greatly appreciated to save all the trapped civilians in Ganfouda.

We call the United Nations Security Council to act NOW! and to intervene. We call on the UNSMIL to speak out and facilitate a ceasefire and the immediate evacuation of the families to Tripoli.
