Foreign Minister, Mohamed Sayala has deplored the statement of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, which he said included several inaccuracies.

Sayala said that Bachelet's statement equated the aggressor, who is trying to overthrow the legitimate authority, with the victim, who is defending the land and the legitimacy.

"Bachelet has clearly ignored the attack of Haftar's forces on the illegal immigration centre located in Qasir Bin Ghashir area, which left several injuries among the migrants," Sayala said.

"She also ignored the government's efforts to protect these migrants despite the hostile circumstances," Sayala added.
