Military ruler for the region of eastern Libya, General Abdul Razek al-Nazouri, announced his decision to bar Libyan women from leaving the country unguarded by a male.

The region of eastern Libya is managed by the internationally recognized government and parliament based in Tobroq, which is fighting for complete rule of Libya against another cabinet in Tripoli, west of Libya.

According to Al-Nazouri’s decision, Libyan females under the age of 60 are not allowed to travel abroad on their own or with other Libyan females.

The decision is already under execution at the Tobrok airport.

It was strongly condemned by Head of the Libyan Minbar Organization for women rights.
