Libya has experienced escalating levels of political violence following urban clashes in Tripoli and Benghazi. The security vacuum created after the fall of the Gaddafi regime has led to clashes between ethnic and communal militias and the violent offensive carried out by the ex-Gen. Khalifa Haftar against Islamist militia groups since May 2014. ACLED researchers have compiled a selection of resources to facilitate analysis of these conflict hotspots and the levels of violence within Libya from 2010 – 16th August 2014.
