The 5+5 Joint Military Commission (JMC) of Libya, which includes five senior military officers appointed by the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) and five appointed by the Libyan National Army (LNA), held a meeting in Benghazi on 13 April 2023. The JMC agreed on a series of measures to strengthen the ceasefire agreement and to implement the security arrangements that were previously agreed upon. These measures include the establishment of a joint operations room to coordinate the activities of the JMC, the deployment of joint patrols in certain areas, and the formation of a joint committee to oversee the implementation of the ceasefire. The JMC also called on all parties to respect the ceasefire agreement and to refrain from any actions that could escalate tensions or threaten the stability of Libya. Read more from UNSMIL.
