Imminent NATO intervention in Libya because of Paris attacks


An imminent NATO intervention is expected in Libya to end the expansion of the Islamic State (IS) Group that may have planned Paris attacks from the Libyan lands.

The Tunisian magazine, Sotoor, reported that the French president, Francois Hollande told his Tunisian counterpart Baji Essebsi in their meeting in France about a near NATO intervention because of the broad expansion of the terrorist Islamic State group.

“An intervention may happen to fight the group after intelligence information noted that it planned for Paris attacks, from the Libyan lands” Hollande told Essebsi. France 24 uncovered, Saturday, that French military planes flied over Sirte city, a stronghold of the group, less than 24 hours after the attacks.

The American state department announced, Saturday, that it killed an Iraqi national IS leader called Abu Nabil in an air strike in Libya a day earlier.

Essebsi met Hollande on Saturday afternoon in Paris, and expressed solidarity of the Tunisian people with France in its difficult times after the terrorist operations that left 129 dead and more than 200 wounded.
