The international community has failed to stop countries like the UAE, Jordan and France from supplying weapons to warlord Khalifa Haftar.
Libya’s ambitious warlord, Khalifa Haftar, continues his attack on the country’s capital held by the UN-recognised Tripoli government - but this time he has Russian backing.
The battle for Tripoli began in April, upending a peace push and leading to a deadly stalemate throughout the country.

European countries quick to condemn Turkey for its anti-terror operation in northern Syria continue to deal with the Middle East's most egregious counter-revolutionary forces and are arming those responsible for the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
It is time for international powers to end their short-sighted action in Libya and step up to find a solution to the civil war.

Libya's coast guard rescued at least 65 migrants, mostly from Sudan, with search operations under way for those still missing.
At least one person was killed and another injured after Tripoli's Mitiga International Airport was hit by shelling, according to local media.
"Reopening airspace at Mitiga international airport after maintenance and cleaning... so that airlines can renew their flights," the facility's management said.
"Mitiga airport has been targeted by fire this morning, the first day of Eid al Adha", the airport's management says in a statement.
The explosion comes hours after Libya's UN-supported government says it accepted a ceasefire proposed by the UN aimed at halting combat in the capital, Tripoli, during the upcoming Muslim holiday of Eid al Adha.
