Gadhafi's Hometown Grabbed Back From Islamic State
by Jamie Dettmer June 12, 2016
Libya's U.N.-negotiated unity government is claiming an
offensive that's close to driving Islamic State militants from the
coastal city of Sirte is evidence it is making progress at last in
establishing its credibility.
The offensive, which has made rapid advances in the past three
days, is boosting hopes the struggling Government of National Accord
(GNA) may be able to build up a new Libyan army on the back of the
success and encourage militias loyal to a rival government in the east
of the country to defect.
