Dignity Operation forces have seized grass turf that was bound for a theme park in Derna, sources say.

Bayda Media Center said Dignity forces seized the shipment composed of 1300 meters of turf grass at a checkpoint in Shahat town, 85km to the west of Derna.

The first batch of 1500 meters of turf arrived successfully in the city, but this second consignment was confiscated last Wednesday on the orders of Brigadier "Yousef Al Mansouri," the commander of the operation room of Dignity forces in Shahat.

The sources pointed out that the grass had been looted by some thugs the next morning in the checkpoint and that Shahat office of the Libyan Red Crescent was also implicated in the theft.

They laid the grass in their HQs, the sources confirmed.

The theft is seen as a continuous process by Dignity operation forces to try suffocate the city of the basic necessities of life and exacerbate the deteriorating humanitarian situation there.
