French special forces reportedly among effort against Isis in Libya
Days after US airstrikes destroy one of their nearby compounds, #Islamic State militants seize part of coastal city of Sabratha
French special forces are reportedly among those working against Islamic State in #Libya, where the terrorist group has taken back part of the coastal city of Sabratha, which was bombed by US jets on Friday, and decapitated 11 police officers.
Le Monde said special forces units, alongside the DGSE, #France’s external security directorate, have been in Libya for several months, and coordinated the November US strike on Derna in which killed the most senior Isis leader in the country, Iraqi Abu Nabil al-Anbari, is believed to have been killed. The Pentagon has confirmed that US forces were deployed there in January.
