Libya: GNA forces launch new offensive against IS in Benghazi

Government of National Accord (GNA) forces launched the new offensive in Benghazi against the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) on Monday.
The army reportedly managed to take back control of Benghazi’s residential district of Al-Jawazi and the Pisces market area during the offensive.
The new offensive comes one day after two security officers died in a car bomb attack in Benghazi on Sunday night. Following the incident ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
