Conflict Detail Descpription
Libya (opposition):
Years after the fall of Ghaddafi during the Arab Spring, Libya is in the midst of a civil war. Since then, government troops on one side and the fighters of General Chalifa Haftar have been facing each other there. The government is supported with arms supplies by Turkey and Qatar, Haftar's troops by Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Russia. According to the UN, deliveries have continued since then and the arms embargo against Libya is completely inefficient. The embargo was established due to systematic violation of human rights, including repression of demonstrators by the government.,
Yemen, Saudi Arabia (al-Houthi forces):
The war over national power between al-Houthi forces, supported by the Iranian government, on the one hand, and the internationally recognized Yemeni government, supported by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, continued. At the same time the conflict between al-Qaeda and the al-Houthi forces also continues. In December, UN-OCHA suggested the war's total death toll had reached 230,000. Millions have fled, two thirds of the population are dependend on food aid. The United Nations calls it the „worst humanitarian crisis in the world“.
