Many people around the world don’t know much about the other life inside the wounded Libya other than that they read about in media.
“A life different from bullets sound and Daesh, east and west struggles, reconciliation initiatives, and migrants’ bodies thrown along the delusion coast,” said Waleed Al-Tellily in Al-Araby Al-Jadeed Website
The report added that you might get shocked, like others, while searching for how things are going on inside Libya, going through tons of the contradicted locations with different affiliations and loyalties.
The report said that one could read headlines like the following ones: “Libya Cup draw at the handball union headquarter”, or “the head of Bani Waleed municipality, the director of the tourism bureau, and civil society representatives visited Bin Tellees historic city to investigate the collapse of one tunnel leading to the ruling palace in the city.”
That means that Libya has a life full of sports events, culture, history, and civil society. Hearts full of hope wake over bombs and division attempts and bargains. This parallel life will impose itself at the end of the weapon deals and policy professionals, as life culture always defeat death.
Libya has generations looking forward to modernity, it has historical places that would become the beacon of the Mediterranean if peace is to prevail, but the world only wants to hear gunshots and missiles.
Libya also has escalated suffering and shocking news; you read: “electricity police in the capital Tripoli confirmed the arrival of three oil vessels loaded with light fuel to Al-Khalij, Al-Khoms, and Al-Zawya. A source said that the fuel only adequate for one month but it will be followed with another load.”
The news is more of a sarcastic plot on a play, black sarcasm colored with awkwardness and surprising, in a country that is one of the richest in the region and major power producer. And despite that, people in Tripoli are suffering water and electricity cutouts for days, with no medicine for their children or patients. They travel all the way to Tunisia or Egypt or Malta for medicine.
