A political solution for the Libyan crisis does not seem possible locally, under the current circumstances. The latest proof depicting its impossibility was the failure of the initiative of political dialogue launched by the UN special envoy in Ghadames. Meanwhile, diplomatic action in favor of Libya is almost completely absent in Algeria, Egypt and Tunisia.
Perhaps the only action taken was in the non-Arab, African neighborhood of Libya, as Chad’s president called for an urgent military intervention to prevent an extremist state from rising within the Libyan borders.
It has become known that IS in Libya and elsewhere seeks to lure African youth and some Chadians, especially in Arabized regions in this country. The Chadian calls [for intervention] did not receive any response, which means that the coast is clear for the establishment of a safe haven for IS militants in Libya.
Such a haven would threaten the neighboring countries and eliminate the borders, just like in Syria and Iraq. If IS succeeds in this regard, the Maghreb, just like the Levant, will face the same danger, and the phenomenon will have transcended all Arab borders without exception.
For those underestimating what is happening in south Libya, it is noteworthy that jihadist groups stationed in Darna and south Libya have the necessary means for mobilization, at the forefront of which is the ideological weapon that the Muslim Brotherhood cadres, IS and al-Qaeda members all retain.
