Something tells me that Gaddafi’s paying off of tribes to stay in power, and getting rid of his nuke plans was the better option for Libya…
The Battle for Tripoli: Libya erupts into civil war as rebel army commander launches airstrikes on the capital in defiance of a UN truce
- Troops led by Khalifa Hafter advancing on Tripoli have carried out an air strike
- Latest stage of four-day offensive by the force, which backs rival administration
- UN-backed government has announced a ‘Volcano Of Rage’ counter-offensive
Libya has erupted into civil war as the rebel army commander Khalifa Hafter launched airstrikes on the southern suburbs of Tripoli in defiance of a UN truce.
It is the latest stage of a four-day offensive by Haftar’s force, which backs a rival administration in the east, against the home of the internationally-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA). It has so far claimed 21 lives.
The airstrikes have prompted a ‘Volcano Of Rage’ counter-offensive by the GNA, with a spokesman claiming advancing government forces had already captured several of Hafter’s armoured vehicles.
