The Libyan forces liberated the imperative Al-Gardabiya Airport near the coastal city of Sirte on Saturday after launching a large-scale offensive against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

Situated 10 km south of Sirte, the Al-Gardabiya Airport was one of the first military installations captured by the Islamic State forces in 2015.

According to the Libya Observer, Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous was the Libyan force that liberated the Al-Gardabiya Airport from the Islamic State terrorists on Saturday.

The Islamic State forces have suffered several setbacks since their failed offensive at Abu Guweiran; they now find themselves with their backs against the wall at Sirte, as the Misrata Brigades continue to advance east towards the aforementioned coastal city.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
