US Africa Command has begun to send Special Forces to Libya within the framework of supporting Libyan forces affiliated with the government of National Accord in their fight against Daesh and other militant groups.

US forces were sent to Libya and back within the framework of supporting Libyan forces affiliated with the Government of National Accord in their fight with Daesh and other terrorist groups.

Additionally, AFRICOM stated that the practice of sending Special Forces to Libya would continue, the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) confirmed to Russia’s Izvestiya Friday.

The United States, the United Kingdom, France, and Italy had deployed a few dozen of their own special forces soldiers in Libya for the same purpose.
