As the Libyan National Army (LNA) forces is engaged in its war against terrorism and armed groups, according to its statements on liberating the capital of Tripoli since last, many Libyan activists and members of the civil society are busy fighting other kinds of battles.

The activists are engaged in another fierce wars and battles, but on social media.

The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) noticed the danger of this online war and its effect on Libyans. Not only does it fuel the conflict among the community factions, but also poses a real threat to it and to the country’s unity.

But with all the attention and warnings by the UNSMIL and its advice to the Libyan community, maybe other counter-efforts are being made by the Turkish media to ignite the tensions and divisions, which usually reflect once again on social media pages.
