Since the fall of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011, Libya has witnessed a state of political and security instability, as the country has been divided into two competing governments, one in Tripoli led by Abdul Hamid Al-Dabaiba, and the other in the east led by Osama Hammad.
Despite the international efforts made to reach a political solution to the Libyan crisis, the situation remains stagnant and complex, as the Libyan parties face difficulty in agreeing on controversial issues, such as election laws and the distribution of power.
