Libya pro-govt forces attack last IS bastion in Sirte

Members of the forces loyal to Libya's UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) fire their weapons at enemy positions in Sirte on August 28, 2016Forces loyal to Libya’s Government of National Accord said they launched a new attack Saturday on diehards of the Islamic State group in the coastal city of Sirte. Backed by weeks of US air strikes, the pro-GNA forces have recaptured nearly all of what had been the jihadists’ main stronghold in North Africa. The city’s fall would be a huge setback to IS’s efforts to expand its self-proclaimed “caliphate” beyond Syria and Iraq where the jihadists have also suffered losses.
