The Fuel and Gas Crisis Committee has urged passengers of Libyan nationality not to use Dehiba-Wazin border crossing with Tunisia to exit the country to avoid falling victims to angry smuggling gangs in the neighbouring country.

The Committee said that all food and fuel smuggling routes have been cut off, sparking protests and outrage in the Tunisian side. It warned outlaw gangs from using families to exert pressure on the Committee.
