Ras Ajdir (Libyan-Tunisian border) – More than 5,730 Moroccan nationals have fled the ongoing violence in Libya until March 5, thanks to the voluntary evacuation operation led by Moroccan authorities.

The cell also issued 740 “engagement acts” for Moroccan citizens blocked at this border crossing to allow them pass and continue their journey to the Tunisian Carthage airport and then to Casablanca.
For the voluntary evacuation operation especially from Benghazi, plagued by violent clashes, the cell said a registration operation of the people wishing voluntarily to leave Libya was organized in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and the ministry in charge of Moroccans living abroad and migration.
An agreement was also signed with a travel agency in Benghazi for the transportation of Moroccan nationals from Tobruk airport (east) to Carthage airport, then Casablanca International Airport.
