Protests in Libya against Haftar's offensive

Khalifa Haftar is considered a hero by his supporters but a war criminal by others.

    More than 1,000 people gathered in Tripoli on Friday to denounce Libya's military strongman Khalifa Haftar's offensive.

    Protesters say they will return every week until Haftar's forces withdraw.

    The United Nations-backed government accuses Haftar's forces of using heavy weapons in populated areas.

    Indiscriminate shelling has killed many civilians and forced thousands to leave their homes.

    Al Jazeera's Mahmoud Abdelwahed reports.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
