Libya has moved to indefinitely ban Palestinian, Sudanese, and Syrian citizens from entering the country, following a decision to combat the source of terrorism within in their borders. Libyan officials believe that many of the insurgents inside the country have traveled from those states after conducting a thorough screening of the militants entering Libya.

The law was issued by the Libyan Interior Minister, ‘Umar Al-Saniki, and passed by a board of legislators before it was publicized. Minister Al-Saniki alleged that the Libyan Government has proof of the militants’ nationalities – he believes this is one step closer to obstructing the violence engulfing the country.

This news in Libya comes 1 day after Lebanon issued a travel restriction on Syrian citizens, prohibiting them from entering the country without a preapproved visa. Syrian refugees have struggled to find stability in their host countries and with the imminent weather on the horizon; it may be another difficult year for these war-torn civilians.
