ISIS Prepares For War In Libya Amid Collapse In Syria And Iraq

The article is provided by Islamic World News exclusively for SouthFront

The ISIS-linked media has released a propaganda video vowing announcing the resurgence of the terrorist group in Libya.

The ISIS “caliphate” officially collapsed in Libya in 2016 when forces loyal to the Government of National Accord captured its last stronghold – the coastal city of Sirte. Following this defeat, reamining ISIS units withdrew to a desert area south of Sirte.

Now, ISIS cells and memberts operate in the following areas:

  • south of Sirte city;
  • deserts near Benghazi and Ajdabiya;
  • central Libyan deserts;
  • Al-Jafra countryside.

The terrorist group has especially strong presence south of Sirte and, according to some sources, are preparing for an attempt to seize it again. ISIS has boosted its media activity in the country.

The ISIS leadership could consider shifting its main focus on Libya because of the terrorist group’s collapse in Syria and Iraq.

    Whatever happens, libya shouldn’t invite the US in, lest some of the tribes get ideas for independence.

      Kinda hard to prevent, as there currently is no Libya, only various factions and warlords fighting for power within its former borders.

      They already created that shit storm so they are just going around and bombing more places for their proxies there.

    “The ISIS leadership could consider shifting its main focus on Libya…”
    The ‘ISIS leadership’ consists of the US & Israel, they’re still intent on destroying Syria, so they’ll stay there for another while.

      The US just started back to bombing in Libya, so I guess they are correct “The ISIS Leadership could consider…..” , makes perfect sense to me, run and cause another shit storm Libya to try and divide Russia forces in supporting the LNA forces and Syrian and limit their support for Iraq.

    in Libya there are two major players right now….the official Libyan government and a general that has more weapons than them. So those 2 fight for the weath of Libya (oil). What they seem to forget is that ISIS has almost the bigger part of Libya and can crush them both in a matter of days. a very unstable ‘peace’ there right now.from time to time news of foreign ship ,tankers, being fired upon appear. Its just a matter of from whom you are buying from, the other will shout you. A US mess again, like everywhere. The next stage of operations for ISIS.

    My opinion is that ISIS isn’t going to put all its eggs in one basket, when it comes to establishing a new Caliphate in just one location. Many who would be concerned with its virus- like spread, just have to look towards Southeast Asia…. and i’m not talking about the Philippines alone.
