The climate of Benghazi (Libya)
The town of Benghazi (also called Banghazi) lies on the north coast of Libya, on the Gulf of Sydra, which is a part of the Mediterranean. After the capital of Tripoli Benghazi is the second most important town of the country. During the rebellion in Libya in 2011 the town was the home base of the rebels. Due to this of late years the town has been the target of attacks several times, among others by the then head of the government Moammar al-Qadhafi. In 2012 an attempt was committed on the American consulate in which the American ambassador was killed. The Mediterranean climate which is caused by the vicinity of the Mediterranean provides mild winters and hot summers. During the summer months the temperature in the daytime is mostly between 30 and 35 degrees. However if the wind comes from the inland the temperature may rise to no less than forty degrees or more.
