UN Security Council Resolution Calls for Cease-fire in Libya

The U.N.

Security Council is  considering a resolution  that would demand a cease-fire in Libya.  The Associated Press got its hands on the draft resolution.

On top of demanding a truce, the proposal also calls on all parties involved in the Libya conflict to recommit to U.N.-facilitated talks to work toward a solution in the country.  Libya has faced violence and political instability for years.

And that increased earlier this month when Gen.

Khalifa Haftar's so-called Libyan National Army started trying to take control of the country's capital.  Military activity near and in Tripoli has  killed around 180  people and  displaced tens of thousands .

Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj accused Haftar of  staging a coup  and said he would protect the capital.  The U.N.

Previously  called for a cease-fire  to evacuate civilians and the injured from the area, but that didn't happen.  The prosecutor of the  International Criminal Court  called on all parties to "respect fully the rules of international law" by taking necessary measures to protect civilians and infrastructure.  The draft proposal for a cease-fire could  head to a vote  sometime this week.
