In December 2016, ISIS officially lost its last stronghold in Libya, the city of Sirt, and almost all its members withdrew to the desert area in southern and central Libya.

Media rumors are circulating that ISIS may cooperate with other radical groups operating in Libya preparing to launch a new offensive in order to take back the city of Sirte.
