Since Sunday, the eastern regions of Libya and the Green Mountain have experienced severe floods, resulting in the deaths and disappearance of numerous citizens, as well as the inundation of many homes and infrastructure. This was caused by the “Cyclone Daniel,” which reached the region from the Mediterranean Sea.
