On Tuesday, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) launched a campaign to provide basic relief items to more than 2,200 people affected by floods in Al-Bayda, with the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

"The relief materials are provided in cooperation with other members of the Rapid Response Mechanism in Libya, which includes the United Nations Population Fund, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme," the organization said in a statement on Wednesday.

The city of Al-Bayda has been witnessing torrential rains for days, especially in the Green Mountain region, which has caused the closure of most of the main city streets.

The International Organization for Migration said that its teams are also continuing to provide humanitarian assistance to detained migrants.

Adding that about a thousand people are currently in the Tarik Sikka detention center, who have received much-needed basic relief materials, including clothes.
