U.S. Troops Take Up Positions in Libya

Tripoli, May 13 (RHC)-- The United States has reportedly stationed some two dozen special operations troops to Libya prior to a possible military campaign against Daesh (ISIL) terrorists in the North African state.

According to reports, citing unnamed U.S. officials, the troops have been positioned at two outposts in Libya since late last year.  The force is operating around the cities of Misrata and Benghazi to find potential allies and monitor possible threats.

The United States is already engaged in so-called anti-ISIL campaigns in Iraq and Syria.  Washington has been strongly criticized for not asking for permission to send troops into other countries to supposedly fight terrorism.  The U.S. also refuses to coordinate their actions on the ground in Syria and now in Libya.
