On 7 January, the Tripoli-based Special Deterrence Forces (Rada) released information on individuals suspected of participating in and orchestrating recent IS attacks against the National Oil Corporation, High National Elections Councils, the Foreign Ministry in Tripoli, the Misratan Court House, and the assault on al-Fuqaha. The suspects are said to travel disguised as women with forged IDs. Rada indicated that the individuals are linked to the group’s presence in Sebha, Ghadduwa, and Umm al-Aranib.

On 8 January, Interior Minister Fathi Bashaga commented to BBC Arabic that IS is taking advantage of the current security vacuum and operating freely in the greater Tripoli region. This was followed on 10 January by unconfirmed reports suggesting Rada had arrested two IS fighters in Tripoli’s Four Seasons hotel.

On 9 January, security forces in Derna uncovered 50 bodies in a mass grave in the al-Fatah area of Derna. The body of the former leader of IS in Libya, Abu Nabil al-Anbari (also known as Abul Mughirah al Qahtani or Abu Yazan al-Humairi), is reported to be among the recovered bodies. Al-Anbari was killed by a US airstrike in mid-November 2015.

American invaders and their hirelings carried out a raid last night on a compound where Mujahideen were holding Daesh detainees located in Panj Buz area of Jwand district, Badghis province.

The combined enemy martyred 2 guards and took away 40 Daesh detainees. It seems that the American invaders and the Kabul administration stooges carried out the raid to rescue Daesh prisoners.

Every time the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate have engaged Daesh gunmen in battle, the American invaders have aided Daesh and bombed Mujahideen positions.

Just as Daesh was being uprooted by Mujahideen in Darzab district of Jowzjan province and were on the brink of complete annihilation, the American invaders and Kabul administration jointly rescued over 200 Daeshis via helicopters.

The overnight raid is the latest attempt of rescuing Daesh as both America and the Kabul administration have a hand in it and are trying to revive and broaden the reach of this phenomenon.
