The first civil war in Libya began in 2011 with mass protests on 16-17 February 2011. The protesters spoke out against the rule of Muammar Gaddafi, who has held the position since 1969, and against the government headed by Prime Minister Baghdadi Mahmoudi.
The bloody suppression of protests by the police and army led to a rebellion and the beginning of the civil war with use of heavy weapons and aircraft.
As a result of the uprisings, Gaddafi and his troops were defeated, and the dictator himself was killed. In addition, the loss of the parties, according to various estimates ranged from 7 to 11 thousand persons.
