Historically, Libya was never a wealthy country, and for many years, was almost entirely dependent on foreign aid and relief. Until the discovery of oil and gas in the country was made, Libya never gained much attention. However, the discovery of oil and gas, as well as the events of the coup d’état brought with it a wrath of new changes, such as a new government, and a new form of leadership. For many years, it was a progressive country making good use of its natural resources, becoming one of the wealthier nations in the region, until it came crumbling down in the first civil war which took place in 2011.
