Are foreign powers exacerbating the conflict in Libya? | Middle East

Libya's forces are intensifying their struggle for control of Tripoli.

Troops loyal to the UN-backed government in the capital are trying to stop the advance of warlord Khalifa Haftar, who launched his offensive in the city two weeks ago.

At least 120 people were killed.

The United Nations says the fighting undermines international peace efforts.

Behind the scenes, however, some western countries and other powers in the Haftar region have supported.

So can these nations work together with competing interests to stop the violence?
