The embassy of the United States has voiced concern over the kidnap of doctor "Al-Siddiq Khalfallah Ben Dalla" in Tripoli.

The US embassy shared a tweet from the UNSMIL calling for the immediate release of the abducted doctor who was kidnapped Tuesday afternoon in 11 Yonyo (June) neighborhood in Tripoli.

UNSMIL urged for the unconditional release of the doctor and expressed concern over the rising number of crimes across Libya at the hands of armed groups which are committing violations without fear of punishment.

The doctor's son said his father was abducted as he was returning from Al-Muwasa hospital in Tripoli by an armed group (four people wearing military uniforms) near 11 Yonyo road.
