PARIS, France – Several citizens in Libya are becoming innovative as war and insecurity continued in the country after the murder and overthrow of the country’s former dictator Muammar Ghaddafi a few years ago.
Since Ghaddafi’s ousted, the country became militarized with multiple armed groups that are opposed to the UN-backed Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA).
The militarization and continuous battle are costing the transitional government a lot of resources in the acquisition of arms and ammunition.
Recently, a Libyan worker initiated a project to manufacture weapons to be provided to Tripoli frontline troops loyal to the UN-backed Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA).
The worker (name withheld for security concerns) piloted the project at a local factory in Misrata, Libya.
Since early April, the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) has been engaged in a deadly armed conflict against the east-based Libyan National Army (LNA), which is trying to take over Tripoli and dethrone the government.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO0, since the fight started more than a thousand people got killed, an estimated 5,700 injured and more than 120,000 people forced to flee their homes.
