The Mayor of Gharyan, Yusuf Bdiri, described the security situation in the city as dire, confirming the registration of a number of violations against the residents, including practices of harassment against citizens in checkpoints established by Haftar's forces within the city.

Bdiri warned at a press conference on Monday of the worsening health situation as a result of preventing citizens from using the main hospital in the city.

"Gharyan Teaching Hospital is overcrowded with the war dead, and could lead to epidemics outbreak," Gharyan Mayor said, pointing out that the continuation of the situation at this pace may require humanitarian intervention.
