These protests were violently repressed by security forces, causing widespread anger in Benghazi and other parts of Libya, which gave rise to the rebel movement and initiated the war. After months of fighting, the UN approved of a No Fly Zone over Libya to e run by NATO. NATO used this no fly zone to assist the rebels by bombing Gaddafi's forces. Eventually, the international community recognized the National Transition Council (NTC) as the representitive body of the rebel movement and legitimate government of Libya. With the aide of NATO, NTC rebels were able to capture the capital, Tripoli, and eventually capture and kill Gaddafi, ending the civil war. Relevant Actors: Gaddafi Regime

However, population enjoyed economic life chances thanks to oul revenues. Ethnic exclusion: Gaddafa tribe (of which Gaddafi was a member of) held monopoly on important political positions and was favored over all other tribes. The rest of the tribes of Libya were excluded from power and were oppressed for decades.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
