Security conditions in Libya have been constantly unstable almost all the time. And as the clashes with the rival militants have increased, US immediately set out in action to evacuate American diplomats from Libya. Under strict security these personnel were taken to Tunisia, from where they will be carrying out their diplomatic mission.
The reason for the sudden evacuation came as the American embassy lays very near to the disputed area and hence would be very easy to become a target as since the revolution that had started in 2011 in Libya, the Libyan government has not been able to maintain law and order in the country. And after losing their Ambassador along with his three colleagues in this revolutionary fight, Obama’s administration has been very careful when it comes to the security of their diplomats. Hence, with complete air and land security the American diplomats within five hours were taken to safety and will return as soon as the security conditions turn stable.
