French aid organization SOS Mediterranean had rescinded the rescue of migrants off the Libyan coast on Sunday; months after it stopped and European ports refused to receive illegal immigrants.

According to France 24, SOS Mediterranean and Medecins Sans Frontières, an international independent medical humanitarian organisation will search and rescue migrants in the middle of the Mediterranean as migrants try to escape the escalating violence in Libya and the deteriorating conditions at the Libyan detention centers.

In an official statement, the organization said that as refugees continued to flee from Libya in an attempt to cross the Mediterranean without any relief assistance, the organization and MSF were urged to resume their rescue efforts after they stopped working in December 2018.

SOS has been forced to stop working because some obstacles have been put in place by some European countries – as she put it – after saving some 30,000 migrants in the Mediterranean over the last three years.

It is noteworthy that the International Organization for Migration has reported that at least 426 people were killed while trying to cross the Mediterranean this year.
