Protests in Libya against Haftar’s offensive

More than 1,000 people gathered in Tripoli on Friday to denounce Libya‘s military strongman Khalifa Haftar‘s offensive.

Protesters say they will return every week until Haftar’s forces withdraw.

Indiscriminate shelling has killed many civilians and forced thousands to leave their homes.
