In Libya they took a dramatic turn at the end of the rule of Muammar Gaddafi. In response, a group of Western countries launched a military intervention in accordance with the “Responsibility to Protect” due to massive human rights violations by government troops and threats of the Libyan leader. The Western intervention received the mandate of the UN Security Council, but Germany abstained from voting, which was a big surprise for Western partners.
