United States Attacks ISIS in Libya : August 1 2016

The US military appears to be expanding its efforts against Islamic State in the North African country of Libya, where the group is said to have a significant presence.

Today air strikes were carried out around the city of Sirte, which has long been a stronghold of the group.

According to previous reports by experts on the terror group, one of their main aims is to gain territory in many countries in order to wage a final battle against the west. This may explain why the US and its allies are reluctant to engage in full scale combat against the group and instead opt for a longer term strategy of debilitating their capacities with targeted strikes in order that local forces dislodge them.
