Russian presence in Libya more dangerous than ISIS, says US Africa Command | Washington Examiner

Gen. Khalifa Haftar has been controlling Libya’s eastern areas while fighting to take the capital, Tripoli. After almost a decade of fighting, Russian contractors such as the Wagner group have been participating on his side, and it may give him the needed boost to beat the government. Ever since the dictator Moammar Gadhafi was killed in 2011, the Islamic State has been conducting large terror strikes in the country. However, defense officials and U.S. Africa Command have been commenting that Haftar and the Russian mercenaries may be a bigger concern than ISIS in Libya.
