Britain ‘moving towards military action against Isil in Libya’

Britain could launch military action in Libya next, Government sources have said amid fears that Islamic State militants will use their new stronghold along a stretch of the Mediterranean coast to target Europe.

Ministers at the Foreign Office and Ministry of Defence say they are “extremely concerned” by the rapid rise of Isil and other extremist groups in Libya and are considering plans for intervening to tackle the threat.

    Britain no longer has the ability to conduct military operations anymore. The British armed forces have shrunl to a barely adequate home defence force. They did this because they need the money to pay welfare to jihadists residing in Britain.
