In chaos since the downfall of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, Libya is ruled by two governments. The Government of National Accord (GNA) is based in Tripoli and has the support of the United Nations while the interim government is based in Tobruk and supports Libyan National Army Commander Khalifa Haftar. The GNA and Haftar are at war on Tripoli outskirts.
