A number of citizens demonstrated in the city of Benghazi on Thursday, against what they described as "poor services and the complete absence of state institutions." Protesters set tires on fire and closed Jamal Abdel Nasser Street, according to a Wtv correspondent.
The protesters chanted slogans against corruption and injustice, calling for the fall of all political bodies and holding them responsible for the current state of affairs.
According to a statement read by one of the young demonstrators, "the youth of Benghazi took to the streets because they felt injustice in light of the complete absence of all state institutions, in addition to the demand for social justice for which thousands of martyrs fell."
In addition, the Wtv correspondent reported that the protests in central Benghazi extended to the airport road and the Al-Kish area, amid the continued closure of streets and burning tires.
