Libya suffers a sharp division in state institutions, between the East which is run by the parliament and the national army, and between the West where the Presidential Council of the Wefaq government is headed by Faiz al-Sarraj, which is the internationally recognized government but it has not won the confidence of Parliament.
Since April 4 of last year, the Libyan capital, Tripoli and its environs, have been in continuous battles between the Libyan army and forces affiliated with the Al-Wefaq government, which left hundreds of dead and thousands wounded.
