Local people sleep outside banks once a week to withdraw a small amount of money in the morning as cash crisis worsens.

Libya's Grand Mufti Sheikh Sadiq Al-Gharyani has urged Libyan people to stage mass demonstrations to demand their rights as the country’s economic crisis is going from bad to worse with no government solution in sight.

“The people in general are complaining and feel imminent danger because of conspiracies and plots by the international community and some of our people,” he said in his weekly program on Tanasuh TV on Wednesday.

The Mufti referred in his comments to the ongoing severe cash shortage and crowding outside the banks, which add to the woes of citizens.

Local people sleep outside banks to withdraw a small amount of money in the morning as cash crisis worsens.

The banks have already limited withdrawals to just LYD 500 per person. Withdrawals usually occur once a week.

“Which is better, to queue outside the banks for months or go to the squares to demand your rights?” he asked.

He criticized Khalifa Haftar and Fayaz Sirraj’s meeting in the UAE while the war machine of Dignity Operation goes on in Derna, Benghazi and Sabha.
