Wikileaks has released classified document involving European Union plan for military intervention against ‘refugee boats’ in Libya and the Mediterranean which could eventually lead to sending ground troops to Libya.
The report, dated back to January 29, 2016, was written by Rear Admiral Enrico Credendino, the commander of the Operation SOPHIA, for the EU's Military Committee and the EU's Political and Security Committee.
The report is said to have refugee flow statistics and tell about details of past and future operations.
According to WikiLeaks, the report also presses EU bodies to work on speeding up the process of forming a EU-friendly "reliable" government in Libya, which in turn would "invite" EU forces to not only to operate within Libyan territorial waters but also allow EU military forces to operate onshore, Wikileaks reported Tuesday.
Last October the UN Security Council adopted a resolution approving an EU naval mission to intercept and seize migrant trafficker vessels in the Mediterranean Sea.
Resolution 2240 authorized several European warships to board, search and seize vessels suspected of trafficking migrants in international waters from Libya to Europe.
The European Union is struggling to manage a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of people fleeing conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa for Europe.
