Khalifa Haftar

Russia, Turkey to continue Libya efforts

Al-Sarraj's Tripoli-based government receives the economic and political backing of the European Union and military support from Turkey, Qatar and Italy while Hafter is backed by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Russia.

Odious bloody carnage

The detention centre is close to a military supply depot for militia working to protect the GNA.

Where things fall apart…

The cauldron of a civil war is bristling with Haftar’s self-proclaimed “Libyan National Army” articulating the threat ~ to which has now been added the caveat, “The time has come”, couched in the assurance that civilians and “state institutions” would be spared. So far, so merciful.
