Has Khalifa Haftar’s campaign in Libya failed? I Inside Story

Khalifa Haftar’s ambitions in Libya are unravelling quickly.
The warlord launched an offensive 14 months ago to capture the capital Tripoli from the UN-recognised Government of National Accord, or GNA.
Its forces say they’ve regained full control of Tripoli, and pushed Haftar’s fighters from Tarhouna, their last stronghold in western Libya.
That follows weeks of similar defeats and losses of territory along the coast.
Momentum began to shift in January when Turkey started sending troops and drones to support the GNA.
How has this changing the course of the war?
And are Khalifa Haftar’s days numbered?
