Libyan Navy forces spokesman: increasing flow of the immigrants through the Mediterranean due to scarcity of resources and Europe failure.

Tripoli, Navy forces spokesman, Col Ayub Qasim attributed the increasing number of immigrants flowing into Europe to scarcity of resources with the Libyan Coast Guard. in a statement to Italian Aki news agency, Qassem said Coast Guard forces could not run patrols for long distances due to the use of small boats with limited capacity. He also viewed failure of EU countries to put pressure on illegal immigration source countries, and lack of support to the Libyan Navy and agencies fighting illegal immigration led to increased immigrant waves into Italian and European coast.
