Libyan National Army



Libyan National Army (Under CC License)

The Libyan National Army is a political faction in Libya and was formerly the country's national military, consisting of a ground force and air force. It was established by the Libyan government after the first Libyan civil war (2011), as Libya's previous national army was defeated by the uprising and 2011 military intervention by NATO. In 2014, the "Libyan National Army" became its own political faction when under the leadership of General Khalifa Haftar it launched "Operation Dignity," a coup against the Islamist-dominated General National Congress (GNA), the Libyan parliament. Most of the Libyan military sided with Haftar. The LNA was the military of Libya until late 2015, when the internationally recognised Government of National Accord was established in Tripoli, and established its own Libyan Army. Since then the LNA has not been recognised as the military of Libya.
