France deploys forces to Libya to allegedly fight against Daesh

A report says French special forces have been deployed in Libya under the pretext of fighting Daesh terrorists operating in the North African country.

On Wednesday, France’s Le Monde reported that French special forces and members of the DGSE external security service were in Libya for "clandestine operations" against Daesh militants.

Following the release of the report, French officials said they had launched a probe into a possible leak of classified documents.

"The investigation should establish if details covered by defense secrecy rules were revealed in this article," a source close to Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said.

This is while a violation of defense secrecy carries a penalty of up to three years in prison as well as a 45,000-euro ($50,000) fine.

France and other Western countries have explicitly supported the idea of military action against Daesh in Libya. However, France has said it is waiting for the formation of a national unity government before formally intervening.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, this report from Le Monde is true, the French people have the right to know what their country is doing with their tax dollars, and in their name.
