Member of the Local Council of Tawergha Abdul-Nabi Abu Arabeh received on Monday at Tawergha IDPs camp in the Airport Road in Tripoli the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi, accompanied by the head of the Libyan Relief Agency.

The Local Council of Tawergha clarified in a statement posted on its Facebook page that Grandi’s visit examined the humanitarian conditions experienced by the IDPs in the camp, without giving further details.

Representatives of the cities of Misrata and Tawergha signed earlier this month a peace treaty which ended 7 years of displacement of Tawergha residents since 2011.
