CAIRO – 1 January 2024: The Libyan House of Representatives amended some provisions of the 1957 law regarding the boycott of Israel.


The new amendments criminalize the travel to and from the Palestinian territories occupied by the Israeli entity or establish any contacts or relations with persons affiliated with the Israeli entity.


They also prohibit empowering holders of Israeli nationality from entering Libyan territory or the headquarters and branches of Libyan diplomatic, consular and administrative missions.


The Parliament also prevented civilian and military aircraft belonging to the Israeli entity from passing through Libyan airspace,


Additionally, ships and all marine vessels registered in the Israeli name or bearing its flag, or registered in the name affiliated with Israel or holding its nationality, from entering Libyan territorial waters or economic zones.


The Libyan Parliament prohibited any Libyan person from participating in any activity organized by the Israeli entity politically, economically, culturally, artistically, or sporting.


Any citizen who violates these articles shall be imprisoned for at least seven years, subjected to dismissal from his job, and deprived of his civil rights.


In its genocidal war on the Gaza Strip since October 7, 2023, Israel has killed more than 21,000 Palestinians and injured about 56,000 others (70% of whom are children and women), in addition to thousands of missing persons under the rubble.
