Three attacks against civilian targets (including rocketing passenger area in Mitiga) by UAE supplied and supported LNA in addition to a long history of war crimes by Haftar forces. UN sanctions are long overdue.
Haftar lost his coup attempt when 80 people forced him out of Gharyan. Now stuck, he is desperately trying to appear relevant to His foreign backers. He can't kill his way to power since the Libyans are tired of his bluster and incompetence. A historical pattern.
Underneath this unnecessary violence are naked self interest by internal and outside actors in stripping money from the eventual Libyan government aka people for huge infrastructure contracts. foreignpolicy.com/2019/08/22/out…
