The Italian embassy in Libya said a team of explosives' experts, part of joint Italian-Libyan mission for support and assistance, started helping Libyan military engineers in removing mines planted by Khalifa Haftar's forces in southern Tripoli.

The Italian embassy published photos for the demining work on Twitter on Thursday, saying the aim of the assistance is to avoid any new casualties in the area.

This joint Italian-Libyan cooperation was announced by the Libyan Foreign Ministry last Sunday as the Government of National Accord was working on cooperation with countries like Turkey and Italy as well as relevant organizations to remove the mines to ensure safe return of displaced people to their houses.

The Italian ambassador Giuseppe Buccino told Head of High Council of State Khalid Al-Mishri last Monday that his country was ready to assist Libya in demining efforts in south Tripoli.
