Media: IG has created a large base in Libya

73
The leadership of the terrorist organization IG increased the presence of its militants in Libya, creating a new base in the city of Sirte, located on the Mediterranean coast, reports RIA News Post Wall Street Journal.




“Taking advantage of the political crisis in Libya, over the past year, the IG increased its contingent in Sirte from two hundred to five thousand,” the newspaper writes.

The flow of Islamists to Libya has increased in particular in recent weeks. By order of the leadership of the IG, together with foreign mercenaries Libyans who fought in Syria and Iraq went to Sirt.

"The seizure of new oil fields and refineries near Sirtom is only a matter of time," the source quoted in the Libyan government.

In this case, the Libyan intelligence believes that the ultimate goal of the IG in this direction is an attack on Italy.

“The IG controls more than 150 km of the Mediterranean coast in Libya - from Abu Greyna to the city of Nofalia,” writes the New York Times.

According to Western intelligence services, Sirte will become the home base of the main forces of the IG in case of their expulsion from Iraq and Syria.

“The IS unit in Libya worries us most. This is the center through which they spread their influence throughout North Africa, ”said US military intelligence analyst Patrick Pryor.

“The fight against ISIS in Libya can be difficult: after the overthrow of Gaddafi, the government is not able to control the country, numerous groups are absorbed in fighting with each other, and not with the Islamists. Neighboring countries are too weak to begin military intervention, ”concludes the New York Times.

          As long as ISIS pumps oil, providing income to the owners, they will not be touched. If it loses control over the towers, NATO will launch an "anti-terrorist operation". Most likely, the Europeans will equip Egypt for the showdown in Libya, and by the end of the operation they will connect themselves, take control of oil production.

        Greetings Oleg hi
        Verb truth Sirte is a port city. This de facto confirms the arrival of ISIS supporters in this country, so to speak, ISIS 'Marines' sailed from Syria and landed on the coast of Libya ... Sponsored) by ISIS fighters. Although, most likely, they will not climb far into Libya, but will try to crush the oil HUBs on the coast of Libya and then the oil fields themselves. Europe, as usual, silently ... watching from the neighboring shore as ISIS moves into a new apartment, which is now located directly opposite their windows. Well, nothing will wake up after the next "Friday 13" with the words -And who did it? And who allowed this? ...
        In the photo is the brand new Tayota with ZPU-14-2, as usual, the supply of ISIL's Japanese automobile industry with its sponsors is at its best!

        P.S. Well, new Japanese SUVs and old Soviet large-caliber rifle systems are like a wave-particle theory of light, like bread and butter like Chuk and Huck are inseparable and advertise each other.

        In Syria, a layered cake is simply and generally unclear who to lean on.

        For the most part, the west of the country beyond the Dawn of Libya, which is either splitting, now reconciling again during the war with a common enemy, is about to split again. Libya's dawn is essentially jihadists - who want to build an Islamic country with Sharia and hijabs throughout Libya (the radical wing also wants to return a piece of Egypt and Tunisia, they are essentially behind the latest attacks on Tunisia - the explosion of the President’s motorcade and they are close in spirit to the Islamic State , while the units of radical groups defiantly do not fight with the IG).

        The center of the country is more under the jihadists who have completely gone; there are enclaves of al-Qaeda, other broads and IS.

        IG - has several powerful enclaves in Sirte, Dern and a piece of Benghazi behind them.

        Haftar - completely crowded out to the east of the country, held on by the help of Egypt. The capital of the officially recognized state of Libya is Tobruk. However, the West accuses Haftar of being a bloody dictator with absolute power, and indeed he focuses on Egypt, and Egypt helps him as much as he can, because if Haftar falls, then another Sinai will open in Egypt.

    This is how the struggle against the "bloody dictators", who quite successfully ruled their countries and even developed them, ends. As a result, it turned out that Europe itself is under the attack of the terrorist caliphate ... The militants inside and outside Europe, they are like mercury, they only flow, but do not go anywhere. Even in Europe itself, tolerance leads to Sharia instead of multiculturalism, as they expected.

      That is why the United States fought against the "bloody dictators" so that chaos would reign in North Africa and the Middle East. On the tragic examples of Iraq and Libya, Hussein and Gaddafi, we can clearly see what awaits Assad and Syria if we stop helping them.
      Only the United States and Europe, which helps Washington to overthrow the legitimate rulers, in my opinion still do not understand that all the Middle East and North African chaos will overtake over time. To Europe a little earlier, to the USA, due to their geographical location, a little later.

    And the trick is that now the IG will capture the oil fields and drive cheap oil to the geyropu, why do they need Italy!?

    Well, the Americans, they bring such democracy to countries, once leaders in terms of the level and quality of life, are turning into bandit states, it remains to say in Putin's words, "Do you even understand what you have done?" for this should be tried and answered in the international tribunal, although the law of the "pendulum", no one has canceled

    DAISH It is an abbreviation of the old name of this terrorist group, in Arabic, “Daulat Islami Iraq va-Sham”, that is, “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant”. Now the group calls itself simply “Islamic State” or the caliphate. The militants themselves hate this name, because it resembles some dissonant words in Arabic.

    It is not surprising if the Barmalei soon have combat speedboats and a new Somalia is formed in the inland sea of ​​Europe. Such a scenario is probably in the development of "respected partners".

    Maybe it’s for the best that ISIS is threatening Italy. You see, Europe will spit on the US faster and get closer to Russia.

    The day is not far off when Europeans, with their rotten values, can themselves become refugees. The EU may become unsuitable for indigenous peoples to live. The number of refugees is large, but these peoples are not only not going to integrate, they breed fast in their traditions: many children, early marriages.
    And the Europeans will become a minority in their countries.
    That's where they rush then? Who will accept them?
    But our liberal government does not understand that they should develop the economy of the country, and not of other states. Sooner or later, the West will receive retribution from fate for the evil sown around the world. So whether it is necessary to continue to dump the national treasure of Russia to the West. It's time to create your own economy.

    ISIS for them cannon fodder, which Russia will have to process into minced meat.

    The worst thing is that Russia, after one "exclusive nation", was cleaning up all of Europe, and now after another "exclusive and democratic" nation, it will cleanse half of the world. The most offensive thing about Ukraine. Our allies, you know who. So, we will have to loosen up ourselves. And now tell me - did we need, and even now, STALIN? Maybe I'm too brief, without clarification, but the older one will understand hi

    DAISH urinate in Syria, and that is preparing alternate aerodromes. In Libya, they do not touch. If the Western coalition snoops into Libya again, it will be interesting.

    Euros will buy oil from them at dumping prices, so they need to cherish and cherish such bases!

    after the overthrow of Gaddafi, the government is not able to control the country, numerous groups are absorbed in the struggle with each other, and
    And what did they expect that the Libyans would rush to build McDonald's? Like children, honestly. They lie only much more sincerely.

    This is what brought a prosperous country and a secret ally of the USSR. I remember when they studied with us, the richest of those who were foreigners were with us. And the most prosperous. Only Gaddafi was afraid before losing consciousness. When flights were disrupted after another booze and they were told that they would call Gaddafi, the first time I saw shoes licking their tongues. And this was done by the group commander to our head of the center. Only so that Gaddafi did not know, otherwise death.
