Skip to comments.Death toll in Libya's Tripoli rises as fighting rages on

On August 27, fierce battles erupted in Tripoli's districts after the Seventh Brigade, an armed group based in Tarhouna, 65km southeast of the capital, launched a surprise offensive against rival militias.
A truce was reached the next day but clashes resumed shortly after, forcing authorities to close Tripoli's only functioning airport.
On Monday, the social media website Facebook was blocked in Tripoli and the surrounding cities.
Libyan utility LPTIC, which owns the two state-run telecoms firms, said in a statement that a lack of security had led to outages. Maintenance engineers were unable to reach some stations which had stopped working due to a lack of power.
It did not comment on Facebook's blocking. Access to the web is controlled by state firms and monitored by security bodies which are effectively controlled by armed groups working with the weak GNA.
Independent national media based inside Libya scarcely exists as journalists often face threats from armed groups or officials unhappy with critical coverage
Libya slid into chaos after the 2011 uprising that overthrew and ruler Muammar Gaddafi and led to his death.

She’s a war criminal. A real one.
War Criminals are just fine,, as long as they have a little “D” next to their name.
its a Libtard rule.
Obama, McCain, Clinton, Soros, Graham, and Rubio...
Thanks so much.
Our Ambassador to Libya and his staff died in Benghazi, thirty year ally Hosni Mubarack was toppled, Libya is a nightmare...
Gosh you folks really were the sages of global dynamics.
Isn’t she just the cutest thing...
LOCK HER UP!
Wonder when Russia will come in to help Libya?
My guess is the Iranians first. Kinda like what’s going on now in Yemen. But that’s just a guess, so YMMV.
Libya was a client state of Mother Russia way back for sure. That’s why the Libyan Air Force had MiG-25’s. Though their air force only flew during daylight hours, IIRC.
But yes, Libya is most definitely mentioned in Ezekiel 38.
Many Bibles have it as “Put” or “Phut”.
IMHO, Obama and Hillary (and apparently McCain) helped make Ezekiel 38 even more possible; what with their shenanigans regarding both.
She’s an admitted co-conspirator to a state sponsored extrajudicial assassination.
Right there, hiding in plain sight.
...a dictator who wants to cling to power.
With Israel threatening Iranians in Iraq, this thing might get kicked off sooner than later.
Unfortunately you had fearless leader running cover for what she and the others were doing.
Obama and McCain’s legacy.
Facebook was down all around the world on Monday: https://www.digitaltrends.com/social-media/facebook-instagram-labor-day-outage/
Oh there’s plenty of legacy to go around there.
Each of those people had a hand in it.
I do agree that it is those two people’s legacy for sure, and that’s probably what you meant.
Been to Tripoli a few times...KTA.
Thanks BenLurkin. Another Obama / EU / UN success story.
