Tunisia warns Libya over border shelling

TUNIS (TAP)- The  Tunisian Government strongly condemned the continuous firing of rockets by Libyan forces at the frontier post of Dhiba, a source at the Foreign Ministry reported Tuesday.
These attacks are a violation of  Tunisian territorial sovereignty and put its citizens and infrastructure at risk. Although Libya's Government has pledged on several occasions to prevent its forces from firing in the direction of Tunisia, it has not respected its commitments, the same source underlines.
Tunisia's Government views such acts as inadmissible, saying they can only affect ties of neighbourliness between the two countries and worsen the situation at a time when Tunisia is endeavouring to support the brotherly people of Libya and fulfil its humanitarian duty towards tens of thousands of refugees.
The Tunisian Government entrusted its ambassador in Tripoli with protesting to Libyan authorities, warning them of the possibility of " immediate and disastrous consequences" on bilateral relations.
These serious attacks are likely to force the Tunisian Government to take severe measures, including reporting to the UN Secretary General, out of its duty to defend its territorial integrity, protect its citizens and secure the safety of refugees on its land, the same source concludes.
