resistance_axis ISIL takes control of airbase in Libya’s Sirte: Report -

Takfiri ISIL terrorists have reportedly taken control of an airbase in the northern Libyan coastal city of Sirte.

The move, reported on Friday, comes as the terrorist group has been seeking to expand its presence beyond the borders of Iraq and Syria, the two countries where it has been engaged in heinous crimes against humanity.

The al-Qardabiya airbase in central Sirte fell into the hands of ISIL, said Mohamed al-Shami, a spokesman for the Tripoli-based Libyan government.

The Misrata-based so-called 166th Battalion forces withdrew from the seized airbase late Thursday.

Meanwhile, the ISIL terrorist group posted a statement on Twitter, touting the airbase’s takeover by its militants.

Emergence in Libya

In February, ISIL released a video on the web that showed the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians.

Egypt’s military carried out a series of airstrikes against militant targets in the city of Derna in retaliation for the slaughter of the Copts. Derna, located roughly 300 kilometers (about 190 miles) from Libya’s border with Egypt, has been regarded as a base for ISIL in eastern Libya.

In the same month, the ISIL media outlet published photos showing members of the Takfiri militant group parading on the streets of Sirte.

Over the past few months, there has been occasional fighting between ISIL and the Libya Dawn faction, which has been tasked by the government in Tripoli for the security of Sirte.

The government in Tripoli is not internationally recognized.

resistance_axis Yemen’s Saleh says Riyadh tried to bribe him into anti-Houthi alliance -

Yemen’s former president Ali Abdullah Saleh says Saudi officials tried to bribe him in a failed attempt to secure his alliance against the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

The former Saudi ambassador to Yemen "came to me with a message from the kingdom asking me to stand by (Yemen’s former fugitive president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour) Hadi… against the Houthis,” Saleh said in an interview with al-Mayadeen television channel aired on Friday, adding, "They told us 'we'll pay you millions of dollars if you ally with us.’" Saleh stated that he rejected the offer to show his support for “national unity for all political forces in Yemen." The former Yemeni president confirmed that there were some “administrative” differences between his political party and the Houthis during his time in power, but vowed that he will not “let go” of Ansarullah fighters despite the disagreements. "Our difference with the Houthis... was administrative, not ideological," Saleh stated.

He lashed out at the Saudi regime for stirring up “sedition” in Yemen, saying Riyadh’s “hatred” for Ansarullah fighters is fuelled by “sectarian” bias.

Saleh also stressed that Riyadh’s attempts to restore power to Hadi would end up in failure, because he "is over."
