The spokesman for the Municipal Council of Sirte, Mohammed Al-Amil, stated on Tuesday that the council had contracted the Danish DanChurchAid (DCA), a humanitarian non-governmental organization, on a plan of action to remove mines and remnants of war from the neighborhoods of Sirte.

“The DCA will initiate awareness-raising programs on the dangers of war remnants according to their plan of action in the city.” He said.

According to Al-Amil, Sirte mayor urged DCA demining experts to communicate with security authorities in the city to conduct a complete survey of the neighborhoods, especially after the city is witnessing occurrences of explosions of mines and bombs planted by ISIS before they were defeated in the city.

DCA has been working in Libya since 2011 and has offices in Tripoli, Misrata and Benghazi.
