This is the May 15, 2019 hearing on the "Conflict in Libya" held before the Subcommittee on the Middle East, North Africa, and International Terrorism of U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Theodore E. Deutch: "On April 4, Khalifa Haftar, the Commander of the Libyan National Army [LNA] movement, launched a military offensive against Tripoli, the Libyan capital and home of the United Nations-backed Government of National Accord [GNA]. In response, pro-GNA forces joined several local militias to repel LNA incursions. Unfortunately, the LNA offensive occurred just before U.N.-sponsored talks were scheduled to begin on April 14. [...] Moving forward, it is imperative that the administration articulate a clear U.S. policy in Libya." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Frederic Wehrey, Megan Doherty, Benjamin Fishman, and Thomas Hill.
