The Turkish-supported Government of National Accord's capture of the al-Watiya base in Libya marks a new phase in the conflict, strengthening Ankara's hold on Tripolitania. The UK government's announcement of a maritime border with Northern Ireland post-Brexit represents a significant shift, introducing bureaucratic division for the first time since the 17th century.
