This is coolbert:
Breaking news that I did not see covered anywhere else in the main stream media.
Egyptian intervention in Libya no longer confined to air strikes.
NOW the proverbial boots on the ground.
Obviously this all in response to the beheadings of the Coptic Christians, each and everyone an Egyptian citizen.
That Libyan central government no longer in control of large portions of the country. Egyptian intervention warranted and understandable.
"Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has escalated his battle with ISIS in Libya by sending in Egypt’s special forces, which are considered some of the best in the world."
"Egyptian special forces have allegedly launched a ground attack in Libya’s Islamic State-held Derna capturing dozens of Islamist militants, according to Egyptian and Libyan reports."
"Ansa news agency cited unnamed local sources as saying that an Egyptian commando stormed the eastern Libyan town, a stronghold of the Islamic State (Isis) there, 'capturing 55 Daesh [IS] militants'."
DAESH that term in Arabic referring to ISIL!
"The Libyan National Army wrote on its Facebook page that Egyptian forces in coordination with the local army stormed IS camp in Derna, 'killing a large number of IS militants and capturing several terrorists including Egyptians, foreigners and Arabs'."
"An Egyptian newspaper, ElWatan News, reported that several jihadists were killed in the operation."
Action taken now action forestalled for later. This is the intent?
