The tactician’s departure was confirmed by the Libyan Football Federation and on Wednesday, October 10.
Amrouche was appointed to the job in May. His first match in charge last month saw Libya force a 0-0 draw in South Africa.
Libya face Nigeria on Friday, October 12, at  Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, with the return in Sfax, Tunisia on Monday, October 15.
They presently have four points from two games, as they try to qualify for the 2019 finals in Cameroon.
Prior to this appointment, Algeria-born, Belgian-bred Amrouche had been off international coaching jobs for four years, having worked as coaching instructor with the Belgian football association.

As the coach of Kenya, Amrouche, made a solid impression, as they narrowly missed beating Nigeria in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers before a controversial stoppage time equaliser for the Super Eagles.

His coaching career was blighted by an alleged spitting incident aimed at the referee at a Nations Cup qualifier in the Comoros saw him banned for one year by the Confederation of African Football.

Amrouche, has also been the national coach in Equatorial Guinea, Burundi and has taken charge of DC Motema Pembe in the Democratic Republic of Congo and USM Alger in Algeria.
