ISIS is executing a sophisticated, multi-front campaign against Libya’s oil facilities, demonstrating the organization’s growing capability abroad. President Obama reportedly ruled out significant military intervention against the group as of February 18.
This joint ISW & Critical Threats Project tracker will provide continuous updates on the latest developments in Libya.
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW), a non-partisan, non-profit research organization, provides the U.S. military, Congress, business leaders, the media, and the general public with open-source, granular, and real-time information and analysis on current military operations and emerging threats. ISW's work on Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and the broader Middle East fills a critical gap in the policy debate, ensuring that leaders have an accurate understanding of current andevolving conflicts.
