    #Repost @ffregister ・・・ Hi everyone, this is @nicoletung and I'll be sharing images looking back on the uprising and war in Libya in 2011. Looking forward to having you follow along! -----------------------------------------------------As waves of protests swept across North Africa and the Middle East in early 2011, Libyans rose up against the 41-year dictatorship of Muammar al-Gaddafi. Ordinary civilians including doctors, teachers, and students openly revolted, overthrowing the government first in the east of the country, with the capital Tripoli falling only six months later. Libyan rebel fighters, aided by NATO forces, fought a brutal war against government soldiers, eventually culminating in the Gaddafi's capture and death on October 2011. Without proper leadership and the failure of other states to support a nascent regime in Libya, the country spiraled into further fighting between hundreds of rival militia groups, each vying for control over territory, weapons, and the country's most lucrative export, oil. It is now divided between three governments and further fractured along tribal allegiances, and also in the midst of a long-standing migrant crisis that the EU is attempting to help Libya control. #war #conflict #libya #benghazi #gaddafi #revolution • • • Thousands of people gather on the corniche near the court house in Benghazi, Libya, on February 2011 for the Friday sermon and prayers, shortly after the revolution began.

    #Repost @theiwmf ・・・ Tariq, left, Nisreen, and their five-year old daughter Roslyn, Kurdish refugees from Syria, are seen on the day-long bus ride from the Athens port to the Greek-Macedonian border in the far north, as they continue their journey from Syria to Germany. The journey from Syria to Germany, where eventually they arrived safely and applied for asylum, took many months. They had arrived in Greece a few days previous to this photo being taken, after crossing on a small dingy from Turkey with dozens of other asylum seekers. #conflict #refugees #syria #migration #war #greece -----------------------------------------------------This is @nicoletung signing off from this week's Instagram takeover. Thank you for following along, and a shout out of gratitude again to @theiwmf for their unwavering support of women journalists around the world. Their mission to empower us and provide journalists with the means and training to focus on under-covered issues, I believe, has the effect of empowering others, including those who give us the privilege of telling their stories.

    #Repost @theiwmf ・・・ An injured boy is registered by medical staff as he awaited transport to a hospital, near Mosul, Iraq on November 14, 2016. The boy was injured by mortar shells near his home in the neighborhood of Shishan, where the frontline between ISIS and Iraqi forces is often only a difference of a few meters, and where most civilians remain despite the danger of staying. In some cases, ISIS has used civilians as human shields, preventing people from fleeing, while internally displaced persons camps are already filling to capacity. #mosul #iraq #conflict #children #civilians #war -----------------------------------------------------This is @nicoletung posting a few images on the Mosul offensive and how civilians have been affected.
