The UN Security Council on Wednesday moved to impose sanctions on militias and their political supporters who are fueling Libya’s escalating war. Libya has been sliding deeper into chaos over the past weeks, with factions now backing rival prime ministers and assemblies, while Egypt and the United Arab Emirates carried out airstrikes against Islamists. Islamist fighters seized the Tripoli airport at the weekend, compounding the crisis in Libya that has been boiling since the fall of long-time dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011. UN mission chief in Libya Tarek Mitri told the council that the clashes in recent days “have been unprecedented in their gravity and to be sure, very alarming.”
