This research aims at shedding the light on the impact of the international human military intervention in Libya on the sovereignty of the state, because there is ambiguity and unclear explanation for the meaning of that international human military intervention with regard for the basics first and its impact on the sovereignty second and their both relation to human rights. This situation could be attributed for the formality and the nature of the comprehension and application for them from one side and the imbalanced practice of it from the other side, we can infer that there is a wide gap for the unsuccessful approximate between the international military intervention for human reasons and the sovereignty principle. A situation that demands a successful proximity between them that must be done. The research held a description for the items of the international intervention and the international human military intervention, the new implications for the sovereignty concept and human rights, the impact of the international human military intervention in Libya on the sovereignty of the state, the international interventions reasons in the Libyan case and determining those hypotheses conjures with the research objectives. The researchers concluded that the intervention based upon protecting humanity is an international practice and that explains the issue legally and politically in a broad sense for any case of the programmed oppression practices against societies was the main reason for accepting the intervention for protecting civilians. The international intervention in Libya didn’t have a direct impact on the Libyan state sovereignty as a state with government, land, borders and population. The researchers inferred that the international intervention was regarded as a relative violation for the Libyan state sovereignty temporary, upon the fact, that the intervention became more accepted and less impact on the national sovereignty.
