Isis without secrets. After the liberation (not yet completed) of the city of Sirte – the Libyan stronghold of the Caliphate -. Libyan forces have discovered and disclosed new documents about daily life under Isis rule. The militias involved in the Bunyan Marsous operation have posted on their Facebook page a number of documents found and subtracted to the jihadists.
These papers mainly concern the international “laws” and provisions adopted by the fundamentalists. There are about thirty documents that confirm civil acts such as divorces, annulments of marriage, or inheritance. Apostasy – namely the act of abandoning Islamic faith – or the spouse who does not adhere to Isis are held by the Judge good reasons to grant divorce. The documents also read the instructions and orders a mysterious “Emir of Sirte” – whose name is never mentioned – received from a judge specialized in marriage law.
In Sirte, meanwhile, American air raids continue – 108 in August and extended to other days – focused on Isis stations in the area surrounding the city, the major Libyan port. For their part, the militias linked to Prime Minister Fayez to Sarraj supported by the UN say they have been ready for the “final battle” for weeks now. Their operation, which embraces quarter after quarter, started in May and is lasting more than they should, with heavy military and civilian casualties. International offensives have weakened the jihadists, reduced to a few hundred fighter. Yet, they have not been entirely neutralized yet. No failures, according to experts, only a slowdown in the operations that aim to eradicate the Caliphate from the lands of the now deceased Gaddafi.
