Italy is going to send to Libya, up to 3, thousands of its troops to fight ISIS

34
Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera with reference to government sources, reports that the official Rome is preparing a major military operation in Libya. The official purpose of such an operation sounds like opposition to the militants of the so-called "Islamic State." The report states that during the operation Italian patrol ships will be involved, as well as Tornado fighters, which are currently located at the Sicilian base of Trapani.


At the same time, the newspaper emphasizes that today the Italian authorities are awaiting the permission of the Libyan authorities to conduct a military operation. At the same time, it is not reported what exactly the Libyan authorities are talking about, since in this North African country, after the NATO invasion, at least two governments are trying to call each other illegitimate. In addition to the two governments that can not come to a full-fledged consensus, there are no uncontrollable groups in Libya, in whose power there is up to 80% of the country's territory, including several oil-bearing regions. Among these groups is the terrorist “caliphate” of ISIS.

Corriere della Sera cites a statement by Italian Defense Minister Roberta Pinotti. According to Ms. Pinotti, in Libya today there are at least 8 thousand igilovtsev.

Italy is going to send to Libya, up to 3, thousands of its troops to fight ISIS


Roberta Pinotti said that Italy is ready to send to Libya up to 3-s thousands of its military personnel, who "first of all will take over the protection of administrative buildings, oil refineries, schools and hospitals."

    Interestingly, over the years stolen from Libya more than what the Italians now intend to spend on a military campaign?

          Italy intends to send up to 3 thousand of its military personnel to Libya

          In response, Libya will send 3 million of its refugees to Italy
          As a result, the Libyans will live in Italy.
          But whether Italians go to live in Libya and whether there is enough space in Italy for Italians is a big question.

          Brave cat-hounds let them remember the story of how, during World War II, they went on a campaign to Libya and Ethiopia, and with what muffle they were kicked out of there.

      What are you, what are you, the ferocity of Italian bersaliers (those with cock feathers) is known throughout the world.
      And ISIS is very afraid of Italian combat swimmers.

        The irony is not entirely to the point, since the swimmers they have are real specialists in their field and it is not known where and how else they will have to fight against the igil.

        They carry feathers of pheasants and capercaillie.

          And I about it the Italian fighting swimmers will be very demanded in the Libyan desert.
          And since the capercaillie is part of the chickens, the difference between him and the usual rooster is unprincipled.

            Probably no one will send swimmers to Libya, although who knows they have seaports there, it’s enough to mine.

            We will not go so deeply into ornithology, I think few here will be interested ...

            I agree. Given that Italy has legalized same-sex marriage. The difference between them and the roosters is unprincipled.

    Well, since Libya since the Punic Wars, it has been to some extent a colony of Italy.

    With regard to this particular case - Italy vs ISIS - the principle "you give a shit - take it yourself!"

      As you say, at that time there were no such concepts as Italy, Libya, or rather they were, but they were not state entities, I’m the name of the area. You probably meant that Rome (Roman Empire) since ancient times owned the territories of modern Libya?

    Let them go. They are afraid that Russia, having won in Syria, will take up Libya. Trying to get ahead. Flag in their hands. Arabs are already waiting for Italian meat for the first, second and third.

    This, it turns out, the Italians simply cut off ISIS from oil, and thereby they will deal with the oil industry themselves. As a result, no one is going to fight with IS. A good fight, some will replace others and that’s all. Pi Z De Ts angry just!
