Episode 21. The Libyan Civil War II (The Tide Turns)

Listen to this episode on: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Libsyn RSS


When we covered the Libyan Civil War in February it looked like Haftar was about to be victorious, shelling the very gates of his enemies capital in Tripoli; but 5 months can make all of the difference. The GNA has turned the tide and now Haftar is on the run and held up in the fortress city of Sirte, taking the city though may mean Turkey and Russia escalating to all-out war.
