    Amerikkalaiskenraalilta suorat sanat: ISIS-strategiassa ei mitään järkeä
    ARNO RYDMAN
    1 tunti ja 17 minuuttia sitten (päivitetty 1 tunti ja 15 minuuttia sitten)
    Amerikkalaiskenraali haluaa lisää joukkoja Libyaan Isisin vastaiseen taisteluun.

      Libyalaisjoukot etenevät Sirtessä, jonka osia Isis-jihadistit pitävät hallussaan.

      (Lehtikuva/AFP)
    Yhdysvaltalaisen kenraaliluutnantti Thomas Waldhauserin mukaan Libyassa käytössä olevassa Isisin vastaisessa strategiassa, jonka mukaan jihadisteja ei pommiteta, ei ole mitään järkeä.

    Waldhauserin mukaan Libyaan tarvitaan myös enemmän joukkoja Isisin vastaiseen taisteluun, kertoo CNN.

    Waldhauser on Presidentti Barack Obaman ehdokas Yhdysvaltain Afrikan joukkojen komentajaksi. Waldhauser puhui tiistaina senaatin kuulemistilaisuudessa.

    Valiokunnan puheenjohtaja, republikaanien senaattori John McCain kysyi, onko Yhdysvalloilla Libya-strategiaa. Waldhauser vastasi, että hän ei ole tietoinen tällaisesta strategiasta.

    – En ole tällä hetkellä tietoinen mistään kokonaisvaltaisesta strategiasta, Waldhauser sanoi.

    Republikaanisenaattori Lindsey Graham kysyi, olisiko se viisasta, että Waldhauserilla olisi valtuudet määrätä ilmaiskuja Isisiä vastaan kysymättä Valkoiselta talolta lupaa. Tällä hetkellä ilmaiskuja ei saa tehdä ilman lupaa.

    – Se olisi viisasta. Se edesauttaisi sitä, mitä me yritämme tehdä Libyassa, Waldhauser vastasi.

    Waldhauser oli Grahamin kanssa samaa mieltä siitä, että Isis muodostaa välittömän uhkan Yhdysvalloille. Waldhauser huomautti, että Yhdysvallat ei tee ilmaiskuja Isisin Libyassa olevia jihadisteja vastaan.

    Graham kysyi, onko siinä mitään järkeä.

    – Ei ole, Waldhauser vastasi.

    Waldhauser totesi lisäksi, että Libyaan tarvittaisiin lisää joukkoja, koska maassa ei ole paljon amerikkalaissotilaita.

    Senaattori Graham kiitti kuulemistilaisuuden lopuksi Waldhauseria hänen suorista vastauksistaan ja vilpittömyydestään.

    – Tämä on enemmän tai vähemmän suorin lausunto, jonka olen kuullut annettavan tälle valiokunnalle.

    Heavy Fighting Against Islamic Militants in Benghazi, Sirte

    In-Depth Coverage

    by Edward Yeranian June 22, 2016

    Forces loyal to Libya's new "national unity" government in Tripoli have reportedly made gains inside the Islamic State-held coastal city of Sirte, while forces loyal to the rival government in Tobruk say they have pushed back al-Qaida militants in Benghazi.

    pro-government militiamen had pushed IS fighters out of the Zafran and Gharbiyat districts and cornered them in small pockets of the 700 district and the Ouagadougou conference center.

    Libyan forces make gains against ISIL in Sirte


    Soldiers capture two barracks, a bridge and an intersection in ISIL's stronghold city, military says.

    Naval forces loyal to Libya's internationally backed government say they have taken control of the coast of Sirte as part of an offensive to recapture the city from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group.

    "Our forces control the entire coast of Sirte," Rida Issa, the naval commander for central Libya, told AFP news agency on Thursday. "They (ISIL fighters) will not be able to flee by sea."

    The news comes after the internationally backed government said its forces had managed to advance deep into Sirte, capturing two military barracks from ISIL fighters.

    "Our forces are in full control of Tagreft barracks and military engineers are inspecting the zone to clear anti-personnel mines," the forces of the Government of National Unity (GNA) said on Facebook, adding that the fighting 20km outside Sirte left six dead and 15 wounded.


    A second barracks, named Al-Jalet, was also seized, as well as a bridge and an intersection that leads to the western entrance to the city of Sirte, the statement said, in operations backed by the Libyan air force.

    The GNA forces said one of the air raids destroyed a booby-trapped truck before it reached their lines.

    Anti-personnel mines and booby-trapped vehicles left behind by retreating ISIL fighters were failing to slow the GNA forces, the statement said.

    The internationally backed government's forces and those of a rival authority in the east are currently engaged in a race to be the first to drive ISIL out of Sirte, the home town on the Mediterranean of Libya's overthrown leader Muammar Gaddafi.

    The international community believes this could jeopardise efforts to defeat ISIL, whose threat has grown since it established a foothold in Libya at the end of 2014.

    Last week, fighters that have also declared their loyalty to the government captured the towns of Nofaliyeh and Ben Jawad in the east of Sirte.

    However, military units backing a rival government based in the eastern city of Tobruk have also been advancing on Sirte from the south.

    Libya has suffered from chaos since the 2011 overthrow of Gaddafi, with numerous revolutionary militias formed along regional and ideological lines vying for power.

    Libyan forces battling Islamic State in Sirte suffer losses in push to advance

    (Reuters) - Forces aligned with Libya's U.N.-backed government suffered losses from snipers and mines on Friday as they battled Islamic State to win control of a strategic conference center in the coastal city of Sirte.

    Islamic State is clinging on in the center of Sirte in the face of a two-month campaign by brigades mainly composed of fighters from the western city of Misrata. Their progress has been slowed by resistance from militants holed up in a 5 km area in central Sirte.

    Losing Sirte would represent a major setback for Islamic State, which established its most important base outside Syria and Iraq in the Libyan city.

    Sirte had been under the militant group's control since last year, and it had extended its presence along about 250 km (155 miles) of coastline.

    At least 20 members of the government-backed forces were killed and 120 wounded in fighting in Sirte on Friday, said Aziz Issa, a spokesman for the central hospital in Misrata, one of the higher tolls in recent weeks of fighting.

    A spokesman for the forces, Ahmed Hadia, said the latest clashes around the Ouagadougou conference hall complex and in the neighborhood of Ghiza Asskariya had been continuing for two days.

    "Our forces entered the complex and are fighting (but) they still cannot take the complex," he said.

    Militants had tried unsuccessfully to counter attack with three car bombs, Hadia said. "The deaths among our forces on Friday were a result of targeting by snipers and of mines," he said.

    The Ouagadougou hall became a key site for Islamic State as it imposed its ultra-hardline rule over Sirte, using the center for meetings and religious instruction.

    Three French soldiers killed in Libya

    Latest update : 20/07/2016

    Three French soldiers have been killed in Libya, President François Hollande said Wednesday, in the first official confirmation that France has troops in the conflict-ridden North African state.

    "At this moment we are carrying out dangerous intelligence operations [in Libya]," Hollande said in a speech. "Three of our soldiers, who were involved in these operations, have been killed in a helicopter accident."

    Confirming the deaths, a statement by France's defence ministry lauded "the bravery and devotion of French military personnel who each day are carrying out dangerous missions against terrorists".

    Earlier in the day, French government spokesman Stéphane Le Foll had acknowledged that special forces were operating in Libya, amid media reports of an incident involving French personnel in the country’s east.

    "Special forces are there, of course, to help and to make sure France is present everywhere in the struggle against terrorists," Le Foll told reporters.

    The statements by French officials come a day after Libyan sources told The Associated Press that a helicopter carrying French special forces had been shot down on Sunday outside the eastern city of Benghazi.

    ‘Secret war’

    While officials in Paris had so far remained tight-lipped about French involvement in Libya, the presence of French personnel tracking Islamist militants on the ground was an open secret, said FRANCE 24’s expert on jihadist networks Wassim Nasr.

    "We’ve known since May that there are French forces in Benghazi to help fight the IS group, as we know there are British forces in Misrata,” he said.


    Earlier this year, French newspaper Le Monde published a report claiming French special forces and intelligence commandos were engaged in covert operations against members of the IS group, in conjunction with US and British forces.
    The ministry has previously confirmed that French aircraft recently conducted reconnaissance flights over Libya, where France took a leading role in a 2011 NATO air campaign that helped rebels overthrow Muammar Gaddafi's autocratic rule.

    It has also confirmed that France has set up an advance military base in northern Niger on the border with Libya.

    Ranskalaiset tuskin menevät venälaiseen kopteriin vaan lentävät mm tiikereillä. Vaikea uskoa. Terroristit ilmeisesti esittelivät väärää kopteria uutiseen nähden tai ranskalaiset saivat surmansa muussa yhteydessä kuin ko kopterin alasampumisessa.

    U.S. Strikes Accelerate Gains Against ISIL in Libya

    By Terri Moon Cronk DoD News, Defense Media Activity

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2016 — U.S. precision airstrikes on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant targets in Sirte, Libya, that began yesterday at the request of the Libyan Government of National Accord have allowed GNA-affiliated forces to accelerate the fight to expel ISIL from the Libyan city, a Pentagon spokesman said today.

    Five U.S. precision strikes yesterday took out one of ISIL’s T-72 tanks, two military vehicles, an insurgent fighting position, a second T-72 tank and two construction vehicles, Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said, adding that so far today, the United States has made two more airstrikes on ISIL targets there, eliminating an ISIL rocket launcher and a heavy-equipment excavator.

    Strike Removed Menacing Problem

    Yesterday’s airstrike on the first tank in the southwestern Sirte neighborhood of al-Dular removed what was a menacing problem for GNA forces, Davis said. The ISIL tank was hidden in a group of trees and close to buildings where civilians could have been, he noted, “ISIL had used it repeatedly to beat back GNA forces, against civilians,” he said, “and it represented a challenge and a problem for [GNA fighters] to be able to get into the city.”

    Since the airstrike that took out the first tank yesterday, GNA forces have moved into the neighborhood in their mission to drive out ISIL fighters, Davis said.

    Coordinated Strikes

    The U.S. airstrikes in Sirte are being done “in conjunction and coordination with, and in support of, the GNA,” the U.S.-recognized Libyan government, Davis told reporters. “The objective is to help the GNA retake Sirte,” he added. “Over the past few months, the [GNA-affiliated forces] have worked to defeat ISIL, and they have been spectacularly successful.”

    The GNA forces collapsed an area of the ISIL stronghold of Sirte where the enemy controlled much of the coastline along the Gulf of Sidra, stretching from near Tripoli up to Benghazi, he said. And ISIL fighters’ numbers are shrinking in Sirte, he noted.

    “We have seen those forces work very effectively to collapse ISIL’s control down to a very small area, which really comprises the city center of Sirte,” Davis said. “As they’ve gotten that far, they needed help getting across the finish line. This is a chance for us to help them.”

    LNA seizes Sidra and Ras Lanuf in lightning attack; fighting still in Zuweitina

    By Aymen Amzein.


    Benghazi, 11 September 2016:

    In a lighting strike this morning, the Libyan National Army (LNA) has taken control of the neighbouring Sidra and Ras Lanuf oil terminal towns from the central region Petroleum Facilities Guards (PFG) headed by Ibrahim Jedhran. LNA forces also took the south and east gates at Ajdabiya. In Zuweitina, however, where the PFG has been in control of the oil terminal, there was still fighting between the two sides, Colonel Ahmed Al-Mismari, the LNA spokesman, said this morning.

    “We got to Sidra and Ras Lanuf without almost any resistance”, he told the Libya Herald, although one member of the PFG had been killed and an empty oil tank had been set on fire by them. There had been no LNA casualties. They fled, leaving all their weapons, he added. These included three tanks, two armoured vehicles as well as other vehicles, mortars and Kalashnikovs.


    However, while PFG spokesman Ali Al-Hassi admitted that there had been clashes this morning, he has denied that the LNA had taken Sidra and Ras Lanuf.


    The appropriately named Operation Al-Barq Al-Khatif (“Sudden Lightning”) was launched at 5 am this morning, Mismari explained, and had been planned well in advance. “We worked on it. It was not a sudden move,” he said. The operation had consisted of four separate advances, he explained, all of them under the direct control of General Khalifa Hafter. He would not give numbers involved but said that the attacking forces had been “very large”.

    He added that air strikes west of Ajdabiya were still taking place, and that the road between Ajdabiya and Benghazi would remain closed until further notice.

    The head of Magharba tribe in Ajdabiya, Salah Al-Atewish, has meanwhile called on all members to support the LNA.

    Ras Lanuf and Sidra include not only the terminals but also a 220,000-b/d refinery, a petrochemical complex, a military and a civil airport and oil company buildings but are also home to some 25,000 people.

    In a separate development, Mismari also divulged that there has been further fighting in Benghazi’s Ganfuda district today, including a number of air strikes.
