The Address | Benghazi – Libya
SIRTE – American television broadcaster PBS revealed in a report via its program NewsHour that the return of terrorist organization ISIS to launch sudden and deadly attacks seems possible.
According to PBS, ISIS, which suffered heavy losses in several areas of Libya during the past few months, is actually working to return to areas in Libya to carry out attacks.
The chief analyst of the Carnegie Institute, Frederick W Erie, told the American broadcaster that the absence of a cohesive institution in Libya and the country’s lack of central authority are helping the terrorist organization to re-emerge.
The city of Sirte was once part of Libya’s ISIS-controlled coastline from 2015 to 2016, before Libyan forces combined with U.S. airstrikes wiped out ISIS combatants from the area. Although it no longer controls Libyan territory, ISIS sleeper cells still lurk in the Sirte desert.
