JNS.org – A new report suggests that former Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi sought help from Israel during the uprising in his country in 2011.

Gaddafi sent a request for diplomatic support to Israel via a third-party country, warning Israel that if rebels were to topple his regime, they could pose a broader threat, Israel’s Army Radio reported Wednesday. The request asked Israel to urge the U.S. and France to reign in military action in Libya, which consisted of airstrikes on the country at the time.

Israel, however, decided against taking any action. Gaddafi’s government was ultimately toppled in October 2011. Since 2014, two rival governments have been controlling Libya.
