A Libyan researcher announced that the incidence of cancer diseases in Libya has seen a sharp increase after the bombing conducted by NATO countries in the country in 2011. “NATO’s use of depleted uranium is the cause of the exacerbation of cancer diseases in Libya”.
Exacerbation of cancer diseases
NATO’s use of depleted uranium is the cause of the exacerbation of cancer diseases in Libya?
“NATO’s use of depleted uranium is the cause of the exacerbation of cancer diseases in the country” (researcher): Radiation policy specialist and researcher at the Nuclear Research Center in Libya, Nouri Al-Drouqi, said that a team of Libyan nuclear scientists submitted an official report to the government of national accord in Tripoli, proving the use of ammunition by NATO forces with depleted uranium.
The researcher continued, “We conducted a study in one of the headquarters of the Libyan army, which was bombed by NATO. We found places with increased radioactivity. After precise measurements, we knew that this radioactivity was caused by NATO’s use of missiles equipped with depleted uranium. .”
Al-Drouqi said, in response to a question about whether the percentage of cancer cases had increased in all of Libya, or only in areas that were bombed by missiles, “So far, in the places and cities that were targeted, yes, and of course, the largest percentage was during the explosions, and uranium during explosions emits gaseous emissions.” Or radioactive dust, dust and chemicals that volatilized in the city of Tripoli… and were inhaled by the residents of the city, and this can be attributed to the current increase in cancerous diseases.”
Al-Drouqi added that after taking samples from the large camp targeted by NATO forces in Libya, scientific research proved the existence of so-called radioactive hotspots to strike Libyan military targets.
Trace of uranium has been found so far in the city of Tripoli
Al-Drouqi confirmed that the trace of uranium has been found so far in the city of Tripoli, and that there are “many other cities and areas outside Tripoli, such as Misurata and Zliten… and some areas that have been heavily targeted. Scientific teams will be sent to confirm, take samples, and determine whether or not there is uranium.
Al-Drouqi went on to say, “We are dealing with the Presidential Council and the Government of National Accord to allow us to visit all the targeted areas in 2011, but we started in Tripoli from the camp, and we have scientists researching, and we are in the process of approaching the International Atomic Energy Agency to make sure, and to demand our logistical, technical and medical assistance.” Because a large percentage of cancerous diseases are rampant in Libya.
After these events, Libya is experiencing an acute crisis, represented by the absence of a single central authority, the proliferation of militias and terrorist groups, and a security collapse, in addition to the transformation of the country into a “transit base” for illegal immigration from the African continent to Europe.
