Libya: Protesters decry foreign support for Haftar offensive

Thousands of protesters donned yellow vests and gathered in Tripoli on Friday, to accuse countries including France, Saudi Arabia and Egypt of supporting Libyan National Army (LNA) General Khalifa Haftar's military offensive on the capital. Protesters also condemned US President Donald Trump for his recent phone conversation with Haftar, in which they «discussed a shared vision for Libya's... Еще transition to a stable, democratic political system,» according to a statement released by the White House on Friday. Demonstrators could be seen holding up banners of Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi with their faces crossed out, as they marched through Tripoli's Martyrs' Square in a show of solidarity against what they see as foreign support for the general. The Libyan National Army (LNA), which controls eastern Libya, is aiming to take over territory from the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), including Tripoli. The country has been split between the two rival sides since 2014.
