On July 24th, Turkey issued a statement saying it may evacuate its embassy in Tripoli, Libya. Turkey already advised all citizens to leave the country due to the security situation. Turkish officials expressed concern about the potential for the violence to escalate, especially following the capture of 49 Turkish citizens from the diplomatic mission in Mosul, Iraq.

On July 25th, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Fatou Bensouda said she was greatly troubled by the increased violence in Libya. She encouraged all parties to refrain from committing criminal acts that may fall within the jurisdiction of the Court. She said irrespective of official status or affiliation, anyone who commits a crime under the Court’s jurisdiction will be investigated and prosecuted.
