The Head of the Presidential Council (PC) Fayez Al-Sirraj, held a meeting Thursday - the second in four days - in an endeavor to find out a rescue plan for the south, which has been plunged into lawlessness and lack of services.

The meeting reviewed the measures taken in the south as per the recommendations of the PC, which aimed at activating the role of the state institutions and improving services.

"The south is our priority and I am following the issue on a daily basis as the region is very vital to the security of the whole country." Al-Sirraj said.

He also called for bridging the gap among the conflicting parties so they can all work for the interest of Libya and for the protection of the south from the security violations.

The meeting was attended by PC member Ahmed Hamza, High Council of State's (HCS) first deputy Naji Mukhtar, House of Representatives members Abu Salah Shalabi and Mohammed Adam, and HCS member Hassan Habib.

Last Monday, Al-Sirraj ordered the allocation of 100 million dinars to resolve the issues of the south, including the health, education, electricity, and cash issues.
