Emiratesvoice, emirates voice US says Libya close to eliminating Daesh from Sirte

Fighters of Libyan forces allied with the UN-backed government fire a rocket at Daesh fighters in Sirte, Libya, on August 4.
London - Arab Today

 US-backed Libyan forces are close to vanquishing Daesh from its last holdouts in the city of Sirte, US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter said on Wednesday.

Carter said forces aligned with Libya’s UN-backed government, who have been aided by US air strikes since the beginning of August, had cornered Daesh in one small section of the city.

“I expect that they’ll eliminate... remaining opposition shortly,” Carter told a news conference in London.

Libyan forces said on Saturday they had advanced against some of Daesh’s last holdouts in the city.

The terror group exploited Libya’s deep political divisions to seize Sirte more than a year ago, using it as a base for Libyan and foreign fighters. Losing the city would compound the setbacks it has suffered in Syria and Iraq

The Sirte campaign is only one of many challenges in Libya, where the UN-backed government is trying to unite a multitude of rival factions that have divided the country since the downfall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Carter said the United States would not halt its assistance to Libya once Sirte was retaken
