Former Army General Haftar enters Benghazi, at the head of a military convoy, for the first time in almost a year. Forces loyal to Haftar managed to take back key areas of Benghazi, securing the city center. The troops now surround the city’s port, the militants last stronghold. General Haftar launched “The Dignity Operation”, a military offensive with the aim of retaking Benghazi from the hands of Islamist militias. Libya has been in a state of flux since Colonel Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011. The country is divided between two rival governments, with disparate tribes, militias and political factions fighting for power.
