(14.5.2016) You have mentioned the importance of the interoperability to respond effectively to hybrid threats and terrorist activities. What are the latest developments with regard to Libya? What are the possible scenarios?
Lately there has been a Daesh infiltration in that territory, in the cities of Sirte and Erna precisely. Over the last three or four months, we have witnessed an extension of Daesh terrorists’ control over the coastline of about 300km, with a progressive and consequent increase in the number of their militants.
This doesn’t mean that they have taken over the whole Libyan territory, but the unstable political situation of this country has represented a perfect opportunity for these terrorists to penetrate the country. Not to mention that Libya is rich in oil making it a strategic target.
