The ceasefire agreement offers a rare moment of real hope to the tried Libyan people. If Libyan groups do not impose their implementation or if their foreign supporters do not hinder the process, this hope will prove tragically ephemeral. Both sides should also clarify the conditions for withdrawal from the front lines and displacement. They must decide on the status of the Jufra and Qurdabiya air bases and demarcate the areas of joint police patrols. Only then will it be possible to establish an international ceasefire monitoring mechanism, the need for which all parties recognize. One solution that would satisfy both sides` preference for a slight footprint would be the insinuation of a monitoring team under the authority of the next UN special envoy. The EUSR could provide political guidance to the team and ensure that the review of violations and the implementation of monitoring support the political process, while the head of the ceasefire monitoring team would assume responsibility for the public reporting of violations and implementation. Such a solution would completely circumvent the difficulties encountered in implementing a UN Security Council resolution establishing a ceasefire mission in Libya (and the related logistical and security obstacles). It would also ensure continuity with UNSMIL personnel, who have gained trust in Libyan military groups in recent years. The “5+5 Joint Military Committee”, composed of five military representatives of the Libyan army affiliated with the legitimate Libyan government and forces linked to the head of the illegitimate eastern forces, Khalifa Haftar, met for the first time on Monday and Sunday in Ghadames. A ceasefire (or ceasefire), also written (the antonym of “open fire”, is a temporary cessation of a war in which each side commits with the other to suspend aggressive actions.  Historically, the concept existed at least in medieval times, when it was known as “God`s ceasefire.”  Ceasefires can be declared as a humanitarian gesture, i.e.
before a political agreement, or definitively, i.e. with the intention of resolving a conflict.  Ceasefires can be declared part of a formal treaty, but they have also been designated as part of an informal agreement between opposing forces.  A second component concerns the repositioning of Libyan forces and joint patrols. The text states, in vague terms, that the two coalitions agree to withdraw their armed forces from the front lines to the original bases. “Benghazi forces must return to Benghazi, Tripoli forces to Tripoli, Misrata forces to Misrata,” a GNA military delegate said, expressing the page`s interpretation of the clause.

See footnote The lack of details on the deployment of the armed forces and their equipment is of concern, particularly with regard to the central region of Libya where the recent military rearmament took place. . . .
