Victims Organization for Human Rights has condemned the abductions, arbitrary detention, and enforced disappearance of women from the city of Derna.

The organization confirmed in a statement Tuesday that a group of masked men from Haftar's militias had blown up the front door of Sahad's family in Bab Tobruk area in Derna, and stormed the house to arrest two women from the family.

Another four women from Sheha neighbourhood were also arrested last May by the same force, on the pretext that their husbands were operatives of armed organizations.

The organization demanded the immediate release of the women and to refer those responsible for their detention to the judicial authorities to be tried and punished, according to the statement.
