Haftar's Assault on Tripoli: Status Quo and Outlook
Since the beginning of Khalifa Haftar’s offensive on Tripoli on 4 April 2019, the Libyan capital has witnessed yet another humanitarian crisis with hundreds of people killed and thousands displaced. While GNA-aligned militias have started their counteroffensive to reclaim the territories taken by the LNA, the forces competing over the control of Tripolitania find themselves in a standoff as the Eastern offensive on the capital turned into a siege.
Against this backdrop, the Regional Program Political Dialogue South Mediterranean of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung convened its Libya Task Force on 17 June 2019 in Cadenabbia, Italy, to conduct an analysis of the current situation, evaluate the prospects of existing diplomatic initiatives for mediation and reconciliation, and take a look into the future.
