Libya has been in turmoil since the 2011 overthrow of Dictator Moamer Gaddafi and has become a battleground for rival proxy forces, which has drawn in foreign powers.

The North African country is currently divided between two administrations, a UN-recognised government based in the capital Tripoli and the other based in the eastern city of Tobruk and allied with Haftar, the head of the self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA).
