Chaos in Libya paves way for Islamic State expansion

Friday, June 19, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Benefiting from Libya's political chaos, Islamic State militants are consolidating their base in the city of Sirte and grabbing new territory, pushing back fighters from Misrata, McClatchy News reported.

Libya's two dueling governments, one based in Tripoli and the other based in Beida and Tobruk in the country's east, are running dangerously low of cash as they back armed groups against each other, allowing the Islamic State to exploit the rift to grab territory.

The Tripoli-based government, known as Libya Dawn, and its rival, the Dignity coalition based in the east, have yet to come together to target the Islamic State’s growth, even as some commanders for Misrata's militia, long considered the country's most adept and a mainstay of Libya Dawn, worry that their city has become an Islamic State target. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2015/06/17/270105/islamic-state-expands-in-libya.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
