Medical syndicates have criticized the decision of the Libyan Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah that allowed a raise of salaries for teachers, saying it's an unprecedented selective measure.

The syndicates said Saturday that the Prime Minister's decision was provocative and raised lots of questions, referring to their decisions to suspend a strike in last June as a good gesture in response to Dbeibah's request to include the raise of the medical staffers' salaries in the first chapter of the budget.

They indicated that the decision of the government distinguished one type of public sector employees to the others, saying that it was a very wrong policy.

The syndicates hinted at organizing strikes at all medical facilities across Libya if the government didn't activate 2019-approved decision of raising the salaries of medical staffers.

The Libyan Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah passed Thursday a previous order that allows a raise in teachers' salaries starting this month.
